Wireless Signal Strength Suddenly Degraded

For years I have been using my phone in my house and never had a problem with reception. Over the past few months the signal has dropped to one bar. I can't make calls from my basement anymore. I don't know what changed. I am using an iPhone 4 in the 19438 area. Has anyone experienced a similar drop in 3G signal strength? I did a speed test and the ping took 280ms and the download speed was 0.63Mbps.

When was the last time you updated your PRL (Preferred Roaming List)? Dial *228, option 2. Make sure you are in an area with a good to excellent signal for the programming to be completed.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I've never heard of it. I'll do it now, thanks.
