Reaching Out from my Black hole

2012-09-10, 3:24 AM


Hello All



    I am on ATT in Idaho and have at best 2 bars inside home, no other carriers can give me better.  I have fought a good fight to have ATT fix issue of course to no avail.  I wish to use a C-Phone Extender what is a good product?  My Atrix 2 longs for good reception from home along with 3 other phones.



Thx Stephen

I had the same problem out where I live. I even tried a cell phone repeater with an external antenna on my roof, but to no avail. Back in July I stumbled upon the AT&T 3G MicroCell and haven't had a problem since!



It was around $190 from the AT&T store and I was really cautious as some of the reviews were not glowing. It's a device that connects to your broadband internet connection and you register your phone to it. Once that's done you have anywhere from 4-5 bars where there were none before. I was also concerned with RF interference as I am a Ham Radio operator and can say I have had zero problems with my radios, computers (WiFI), cordless phones (landline) or satellite TV (DirectTV).



While I agree that I shouldn't have to fill the holes left by AT&T, this was a great solution as now both my wife and I have cell phone coverage in the house.

Thank you 



I just sent mine back M-Cell was a  no go 2 weeks of ATT Tech Hell, regardless I am still optimistic that there has to be a solution.

Steve,



Tbr Wolf's idea is the right idea and what I was trying to say in my other message.  He did a better job.

Well Thanks guys for your support and Ideas this was a good expereance with these forums.  I will be heading on over to Sprint seems they like there customers and want to keep them.  I spent hours on the phone many nights for the last 2 years and the best ATT could do was release me from my contract.  "ATT family" well not so much.  MOTO I still love them but its time to take a ride in space.  Maybe you'll see me again perhaps on a Galaxy 3...smiley



Take it easy 



Stephen

Good luck with them Stephen, they arent that different than anyone else. They love to get you in the door...but once you sign that 2 year agreement, they really dont care. #emptypromises
