Long story short, the reception around my area is becoming more unbearable as the months go by. Whenever I call my dads cellphone or any cellphone in the house, the call will not get through. Even if the phone has atleast 1 bar. For 3G, it's even worse. In the AT&T 3G map it said we're at "best" area but it's way beyond BS. I would be lucky to even get 3G, most of the time I would only get EDGE. Reason is that I only get 0-1 bar is my room. 2 bars if I just stand next to a window for a certain amount of time. I can't even send an MMS without having to step outside. I called before to see of any maintenance was being done but no. Now every so often I will get a message saying "Cellular Data could not be activated". The other two phones (not smartphones) also have a tough time getting signal. As much as I want to leave we simply can't since we are still under contract. As of now I'm just thinking of buying that microcell and see if it fixes our problem.
