My cellphone has a range of at least 5,200 miles, as tested by calling my mother in Germany just this morning :-) Seriously though, they all range between 30 to 50 clicks line of sight (in analog mode). The best range was achieved by the old bagphones, but I don't think you can activate those old analog only phones anymore. So any tri-mode (CDMA/TDMA/Analog) phone would fulfill your needs. Check www.phonescoop.com for details.

I have a Nextel, Motorola i1000 plus. Service is great at least around here - Almost uninterrupted all up and down the Left Coast and east to Tucson, AZ. I rarely experience outages in urban and suburban areas as I have with others.

If range is an issue, you don't need a cell phone. You need a [i]satellite[/i] phone. Pretty much, if you can see the sky, you can make a call.

Do you need "coverage" or "range" ? Having a phone with a ten mile range is great, but if there's not a compatible tower in your area you're screwed. Generally in the US, you'll have better overall coverage with a TDMA based phone rather than an CDMA. A good multimode phone will have an analog option as well, but only as a secondary feature. As an earlier poster said, nothing beats the old analog phones for range.
