Iphone 6S; terrible signal strength

I have a 16 gig 6S; 4 months old. 
I have a Incipio case on it. 
I live in the burbs of Denver; very well populated.  Should be very strong signal strength. 

My phone seems to never have more than 1-2 dots of cell reception.  Its always jumping from 3G to LTE.  Very frustrating.  Dropped calls and broken up conversations constantly.  Anyone have any experience with this?  Any advice?  Thanks

Thank you for the prompt response. Appreciate. I am not sure if others

locally are having the same issue but my fiance got the same phone on the

same day as part of the same order. She does NOT have the same issues with

signal strength that I am having. I travel all over the state and the

problem is consistent everywhere I go. I never have more than 1-2 dots of

service anywhere in CO (even in Downtown Denver where there should be

plenty of Verizon signal) It feels as though my phone is fighting between

3G and LTE all the time. Very disappointed/concerned. Constant broken

up/dropped calls. My Iphone 5 never had this issue. Could there be an

issue with my phones antenna? Could the Incipio case I am using be

affecting my reception? Thanks for continued support.

Which side of Denver?  Aurora? JeffCo? Foothills?  It is possible the tower serving your area is over stressed or positioned poorly for your home especially if it doesn't have a direct line of sight.  I always thought my signal in the Bear Creek Valley area was weaker near the creak then on top of the hills surrounding it.  Of course it probably has changed since i was last there.

SW, Ken Caryl area. I am having the same problem all over the state tho.

My phone never has quality signal strength. I would think in that the norm

would be strong signal strength and occasionally it would be weaker. Its

always week, and never strong. thanks.

Have you tried replacing the SIM card?

I am also having trouble with my new Iphone 6s.  I traded in my iphone 5 s which worked perfectly in my home in NJ and anywhere else I traveled.  Now each time I am on the phone, I have broken conversations, and dropped calls. It is not a good thing as I am using this phone for business.  I see from the forums this is an issue others are having.  I have only had the phone for 2 months, but am ready to bring it back and downgrade to what I had before.

Please advise.

Well if you have had it for 2 months you can't take it back. Do you have advanced calling active on your line? If so you may be in an area where it's not working well. If that's the case you can turn the feature off and see if that helps.
