Weak signal from Iphone 7

I'm always getting drop calls and a weak signal inside of my house. Most of my calls I recieve goes straight to my voice mail and when I do connect, it stays connected for only a minute. This is with wifi on or off but with wifi off, it's horrible, can't even dial out. Had to get a landline just to make and recieve calls. The coverage in my area is terrible and I've conducted all troubleshooting options that's listed. I'm out of options at this point, any help is appreciated. P.S. I've had an Iphone 5, 6, and now 7 and they all had the same issues... dropped callls and a bad signal!!!

As it is wireless service, there are many things that impact the signal received from the radio frequency's. There is no guarantee of service anywhere unfortunately, no matter how much VZW would like to cover every square-inch of Earth.

As it has been like this consistently with multiple phones it is likely not related to phones and just has to be where you are in relation to the towers.

One option you do have however, is a network extender which do work very well in general-- performing like a micro cell tower in your home or business and actually creates or generates a signal rather than just boosting one that is already there and generally will give someone wiht 0-1 bar  of signal strength 4 or 5 bars after.

Good luck to you Smiley Happy

Thanks, I figure that was the reason... thinking about switching to AT&T, my wife gets a good signal with them.

And that is unfortuantely the case in some areas. While Verizon does generally cover more areas than the other "large" carrier's-- there will always be some areas that are covered by another carrier better and vice versa due to proximity/placement of towers.

Have you enable WiFi Calling? Simply connecting to the WiFi and not enabling the WiFi calling feature will not improve your signal.
