I recently upgraded from and IPhone 4 to an IPhone 5 three weeks ago. With my IPhone 4 I was able to make and receive calls in my home and the reception was good anywhere in the house. With my new IPhone 5 I usually have just 1 bar and no matter where I stand in the house the reception is awful. I can hear one or two words the per sentence from the person I am talking to. If I do have 2 bars I can sit perfectly still in the same chair facing the same direction and watch the bars drop to one in a matter of seconds. I went to the Verizon Wireless store where I bought the IPhone 5 and asked about this and their only suggestion was to get an extender, which is not cheap. Three weeks ago, I didn't need an extender. My house hasn't moved so why is my phone service so much worse?
