How to Get Better Mobile Reception Indoors

Tools for improving cell service at home

If you are trying to save money, it may be tempting to ditch your landline. Luckily, there has never been a better time to do it, as carriers are answering the call for better cell reception indoors. Verizon Wireless recently introduced the Network Extender ($249); it connects to a broadband connection and acts like a tiny cell tower. Sprint offers a similar product, the AIRAVE base station ($99.99 plus $4.99 per month). T-Mobile customers can get better reception by making calls over Wi-Fi. They will need a Wi-Fi-equipped phone compatible with T-Mobile's Unlimited Hotspot Calling Plan ($9.99 per month), such as the BlackBerry Curve 8900.
