Is there any way to boost mobile coverage in a weak area?

I go to a place in the Colorado mountains right on the edge of Verizon coverage.  I used to get consistent mobile connectiviity, but now sometimes I don't.  It shows one bar, but calls or texts may or may not go though.  Does anyone know of anything I can do with my phone itself to increase the likihood of successful phone coverage?  I have a Samsung Stratosphere.

Hey there,  userx! Thanks for sharing your service concerns. We want to be there to support you, too! I don't know of a way to boost service on the device itself, as it's designed on a fundamental level to capture the strongest signal available. I don't know what this place in Colorado may be, but I may have another suggestion. If this place is a residence with high speed/broadband internet, you may also consider a Network Extender: http://vz.to/IHRT6h. My father loves his!
