I just got a new iPhone 4s on Sprint, and was less than overjoyed to find that I have at home a single bar which drops to no bar, and "Extended" most often. It sometimes goes up to three bars for a minute or so, but drops to one soon after. This is while the phone is stationary. My wife is giving me the stinkeye because I left the AT&T plan she's still on, and she has a solid signal.
I looked on the coverage map and see the closest tower at about 1.5/1.75 miles to the west, and nothing for a long way to the north/south/east. Am I going to have such a bad signal at home all the time, or is there work being done?
The tower that provides you coverage is twice as busy as the tower to the East. It is probable that when capacity is high that the coverage is constricting thus narrowing the edge of coverage. This would cause signal loss at your home.We have aggressive upgrades planned for that tower that should improve your in home coverage-

In the mean time an Airave would be a suggested option if you continue to fight for coverage.

Cool, I can live with it that long if it's going to improve in a few months. FWIW, while AT&T has a solid signal at my house, there are still two dead zone's traveling to/from the house to the south. I'll be going out today and will probably drive through those zones to see if the Sprint coverage is better.
