More and more people are dropping their home phone landlines and just using their cellphones to communicate. This might seem like a great money-saving idea, but there are some drawbacks you need to think about, as I explained in this valuable Tip.
However, one drawback I haven't covered yet is a problem with cellphones themselves. How strong is your provider's cell signal INSIDE your home?
Do your calls drop out, text messages get stuck and never send or perhaps your internet browsing slows to a crawl? I've heard of some people who have great reception in some rooms at home and virtually none in others.
Someone else had excellent coverage with one provider, but then switched carriers for a new plan. Only then did she find out that her new phone rarely connected inside her home. If you are going to use your cellphone as your primary phone, you really need better reliability than that.
Some buildings seem like they were designed to block your reception. It might be a particular room, a certain spot or anywhere you stand. There's not much you can do about poor reception when using your phone at the store or work, but at home, you don't have to put up with it.
That's why I researched ways you can actually boost your cellphone signal inside your home. With a stronger signal, you can feel free to walk from one room to another while talking or be confident that your text messages will actually send. Before you decide to dump your landline, see if these ideas will work for you to ensure you have dependable cell service at home.
