No Service

Service has always been spotty in our house, but not too bad outside or anywhere else here in Naples, FL until the last few months.  At first I could drive down to the end of our street and get great service, then it was 2 miles away from home, as of December it's nowhere.  I reset my phone on 12/06/2015, reformatted my micro-SD card and took out the battery & put it back in.  I have Android version 5.0 and cannot update as it says there is no network available.  Right now looking at "Status" Battery level 87%, Network: Searching for Service, Signal strength: -120 dBm  99 asu,  Mobile network type: unknown...

I sometimes do get service for a very short time (i.e. 2 - 3 minutes) maybe twice a week, just long enough to receive texts.  Needless to say I am extremely unhappy (that's putting it mildly)!  My husband has a windows phone and it has service albeit spotty as usual in the house. 

Any ideas?  Please don't tell me to get a new phone, it's not time for an upgrade yet.  Thank you for any and all help in advance.

Re: No Service

I am sorry I failed to mention that I did indeed remove and reinsert my SD card when I reset my phone.  I just recently reformatted it.  I should also mention that I do NOT have any apps (other than what was already installed at factory) on it. 

Thank you for your prompt reply.
