If there aren't enough cellphone towers near your home, no cellphone (regardless of carrier) will work in your home. You can't always blame the cellphone carriers, especially if you have neighbors who keep cellphone towers out of your neighborhood. People want the cellphones, but don't always want the towers near their home saying they're an eyesore and worry about radiation. The type of phone you have also makes a difference too. There's a trucker who picks up freight where I work and lives in a Chicago suburb that doesn't have a single cellphone tower because residents don't want the towers, and believe it or not, it's one of those higher income neighborhoods that has homes valued at $200k+. I wish I remember which city it was,but those residents have themselves to blame for poor reception. I get excellent reception in my home because I live near a 500' tower.
I am having problems with not being able to use my cell phone @ my residence - I am able to use it outside of my home - not inside - Whereas I used to be able to use it!! - I had one phone for 1 year prior to purchasing an additional phone - (flip phone) which initially worked fine - then in a few months we were unable to get a signal at home - Verizon is my carrier and they are informing me they dont promise useage at home - etc. I dont see anywhere where they mention you may not be able to access a signal @ home - Has anyone else experienced this problem - I have been realitvely quiet about this matter because we still need the phones daily on the road for emergencies but I feel as though I am getting ripped off - monthly payments without full use of the phone service.
