Far as I know you have to drive south to the church parking lot on the left. That's the closest place with reception with ATT. That was 2 years ago when I last climbed there. I am guessing nothing has changed. Ed Wade

Seneca is located within the National Radio Quiet Zone
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_S...
which means there is no cell coverage, and there isn't likely to be any coverage for quite a while. YAY!

Ditto on the church parking lot. Used it multiple times. Ernest W

Church parking lot with AT&T only. Actually you can "sometimes" get service on top of the South Peak. Some of my friends carry their phones to use as cameras and once in a while it will ring on the summit and have enough bars to talk. That's on AT&T and Verizon. More reliable is to connect to the Wifi available in the town and campground for a small fee and use something through that. Leaving your phone on will drain the battery in short order anywhere at Seneca. Chris Rice

I took a tour at the observatory and the guide told us a malfunctioning dog blanket was screwing up the radio telescope. The scientists had to track down the blanket and replace it. Another resident of the town received a new microwave since it interfered with the telescope. I can't imagine what a cell tower would do.
