If youve got kids itl be handy to keep them amused playin the games.(for about 10 mins anyway)
Seriously tho I have no idea, but if the cape is like the rest of Australia you wont have a large phone bill.
Try Telstra.com they have coverage maps of everywhere.

Yes it does in limited areas; Around Cape Trib, Cooktown from Archer Point up, and most of Weipa. Thats about it.

I can confirm what Eric said - I was up there lat Aug & Sept and CDMA coverage had recently been expanded with a few more towers. At Archer River we saw two guys from the National Telecommunication System ___ or something and they said you could get coverage just a litte short of Archer River; anyway we did not test it here put in Weipa, Bamaga, Thursday Is no problems and at Punsund Bay on the beach no worries and also at Chilli Beach.Cheers, Beddo
