Does anyone have a solution for getting better cell phone reception in a house with a metal roof?

    Check out electronic stores and see if they have anything that will strengthen the signal, I know they used to have them. My hubby used something when he drove truck to strengthen the signal in grey areas that had weak signals in parts of the states, especially in the northwest where the towers were few and far between. I imagine someone still has the signal boosters, I think he got his through a business that worked with antennas.

    I have a metal roof and it has nothing to do with reception..... its about how close you are to a cell phone reception tower.

    Also who you carrier is. If you have WIFI connect to it. You'll save on your data and minutes from your carrier. When my daughter and granddaughter visit they tie into my WIFI. Also reception is great.

    Does your reception get better when you step outside the door?
