Not I, but I have a question: Is there cell reception on the playa?

There is. I learned that's been around for about 5 years.

However, I put my phone on airplane mode the whole week.

I do preload music charts on my phone for the jams at the jazz cafe, but aside from that I don't use my phone. I bring a watch for time and disposable cameras for photos.

Interesting. Thanks!

On the BM website, before you're able to do anything else, a few questions/prompts pop up. One is to remind people to be present in the moment and not connect with the default world via phone is possible.
