Low signal strength & dropped calls while at home

Since getting my phone some time ago, while at home my service is weak and I have dropped calls daily. Is there a way I can use my wireless home router to talk over broadband? Or do I need a booster for my home? Im on a limited income and disabled.

Depending on the model of phone, you could do WIFI calling.  If your phone doesn't support WIFI calling, you could purchase a Samsung Network Extender which provides a mini-tower in your home and uses your broadband to access the Verizon network. They are somewhat expensive but can be found on the internet at discounted prices.
