Solution for no phone service in your basement
I live in a basement and in most of my apartment I have no cellular coverage
we always need to put our phones near one window where it works
any ideas what I can do?
@SKGraphics you can buy an external antenna https://www.amazon.com/cell-phone-signal-booster/b?ie=UTF8&node=2407782011
the only downside is the price
@SKGraphics Most 4G phones can use WiFi calling when there is no service. This is why they no longer provide reception boosters and antennas even to business customers.
Another option is to change providers.

I used to have the same problem, until I found a great solution
I bought a Panasonic Phone that has a feature called Link to cell, basically it lets you use your home phone as a Bluetooth device for your cellphone,
You can place and receive calls from your home phone as your cell
so I place the cellphone by the window where it has service and use the home phone to dial and receive calls, It even alerts you when you have a new SMS.
the one I bought you can connect 2 cellphones at the same time and it works great,
Another thing we gained when my wife comes home from work she never remembers to turn off the vibrate mode until then she always missed calls, since then when the cellphone is home it will ring on the home phone.
I will look into it. (is there any way to give a like here?)

@Chocolate I did the exact same thing when I needed it (back 5 years ago I lived in a basement)
I btw still have that Panasanice using it now but no need the Bluetooth feature.
