“Unplugging” is nice – when it is your choice. Unplugging because you have poor reception is an entirely different story.
It you are constantly on the hunt for a better signal while at home, you are not alone. The struggle is real. And, it is more than a little bit frustrating.
Fortunately, you don’t have to simply accept spotty cell phone service. With a little ingenuity, it is a problem you can solve. These are two of the easiest solutions:
Solution 1 – Cell Phone Booster
As the name would suggest, cell phone boosters are designed to boost cell service in a very specific area. They do so by taking an existing cell signal (typically found outside your home), amplifying it, and then broadcasting it within your home.
For a cell phone booster to work, your carrier must provide some service in your area. Additionally, your cell phone booster will need to be registered with your individual carrier. Each company can withhold its consent for usage. (They will typically only do so if you live in a highly populated area.)
Solution 2 – Enable Wi-Fi Calling
Wi-Fi calling allows your cell phone to make calls over your home’s Wi-Fi (aka wireless Internet). Currently, not all carriers offer this service. And, it is only available for compatible devices, such as the iPhone 6 series and some Android phones.
Think About a New Carrier
Finally, some carriers simply don’t provide coverage in all areas. This is particularly true of remote locations. If you have moved beyond the city limits and suddenly lost your coverage, talk to your neighbors. Ask them what carrier they use. It might be time to consider switching providers.
