"I am concerned about data, not just voice. Are you meaning data too? So, from your experience, I should trust Verizon/ACS?"

Not to worry if you are camping in the cities mentioned. You should consistently see 4 to 5 bars and a 3G icon. Not to say you can't find areas with poor service outside those mentioned locations, but coverage is pretty complete in what they call the Railbelt.

Pretty good news, then! THANKS!!

I think I will order a Verizon prepaid SIM card, and get here a good compatible smartphone.

Thanks!

I have "made do" with a Palm Pre Plus the last 2 summers, and used the mobile hotspot application for both the wife and I for email and browsing in Sterling on the Kenai. It includes 5G of data, we use about half that. Your data needs may be a lot more than that, but I would note that you cannot activate a Verizon device in Alaska, but if you activated it on Verizon's network it should work perfectly in Alaska. Best wishes for a pleasant and successful trip.
