Cell Phones
If you travel across South Dakota on Interstate 90, or many other major highways for that matter, you will usually be within the in range of most national cellular services. Within the Black Hills, however, you may find yourself in a "black hole" and cellular communications may not be possible. This happens in areas surrounded by the higher mountains. Keystone is one such black hole for some service providers. Cellular service on mountain tops, like Mt. Rushmore, is usually good.
