Does your signal strength change in different parts of the house?

    No LTE in guest bathroom, guest bedroom is so-so, and no LTE in basement.

    Just 4G.

    If I go into a back room, I might lose one bar. The tower is less than half a mile from my home so I always have good strength.

    Let me guess, signal is best outside the house? Its the walls. Whatever siganl you use, the amount of walls, the material they are made from and the thickness of them are going to block or deteriorate signal. I get no signal in a certain patch of my house at all. Though I am in a bad area for phone signal anyway.

    As long as I'm not in the basement I get pretty good service. It fluxuates by a bar or so but I do fine. In the basement I get one or maybe two bars. Better than my friends on ATT - they don't get anything.

    I have Verizon

    Do you know if those are safe? I know AT&T was offering those but I was afraid of getting brain cancer.

    LSU dropped to 4. I bet your happy. Oregons #2 but will probably drop.

    Sorry for getting side tracked. Saw your a bama fan had to reply.

    That upsets me cause I want teams in the SEC to be ranked very high but after watching them play last night I am not shocked at all that LSU dropped. Now back to the Iphone 5:D

    Rolltide - can you post or PM me the solution your using. I can get 3 or 4 bars walking around my neighborhood but I'm lucky to get one or two in my house.

    Fortunately I live in a very strong area where AT&T is everywhere. I've been enjoying great consistency with LTE for months via my Androids, my iPhone 5 locked onto it just fine as well.

    Then the question doesn't really apply if you're answering it using a wifi reference. ;)

    I can actually drop a call in a corner of my kitchen and get better service when I have a beer in hand.

    No LTE in basement (1st floor), Living Room (2nd Floor) LTE/4G fluctuating. Bedroom (3rd floor) LTE but not very strong LTE. Seems LTE is better the higher up you are.
