Will AT&T Cell Boosters solve issues with SMS/MMS messaging not solved with Wifi-C
Would the AT&T Cell Booster Pro (femtocell) device provide a solution for the following scenario using an iPhone 14 Pro over the AT&T network:
- Weak to no AT&T cell signal (1 bar at approx. -110 to -120 dBm)
- Strong AT&T fiber 1Gb internet connection and 300-500Mb Wi-Fi distributed over house
- WiFi-Calling enabled with *reasonable* success calling/receiving voice calls
- Apple iMessages of all types sent and received normally
- PROBLEM: ALL SMS/MMS messages (non-iMessage) carrying any sufficient load (1 pic, 1 gif or more than 1 pic) will send EXTREMELY slowly (long delay with green bar) or FAIL. However, same MMS message sent from iPhone when in range of a slightly stronger AT&T signal 2+ bars will send virtually immediately.
Current use of strong WiFi-C in home does not seem to solve the issue of the very low cell signal under this SMS/MMS use case. Would the AT&T Cell Booster provide some workaround that better handles or solves this issue to where it acts like it has a reasonable cellular network connection?
Would this provide no other benefit over Wifi-C and simply a stronger, direct cell signal is required using other possible alternate solutions with cell boosters and antennas directed at the AT&T towers?
