    Has anything changed in your network?  New router?  New ISP?  Have you changed your phone, or applied a new upgrade?

    Not a pro on this site at all..but I don't think this has anything to do with the phone.  I have had the same phone with AT&Tsucks since 2/2011.  I HAD to buy a microcell to be able to use my phone in my house, which is ridiculous since AT&Tsucks is the local service in my city, but whatever.  Anyway, same phone, no updates and I can walk from my office where the microcell is, through the door into the hallway and I will lose my microcell connection.  I restarted my phone no less that FOUR times yesterday to reconnect to this "booster".  I will get up every morning and have no signal at all, which is a major problem for me since my mother is 800 miles away and in bad health.  

     

    I guess my point here is, don't question the customer for non-working equipment from the WORST of the big three cell providers in this country.  Given the choice again, I would have stayed with Verizon.  Yes, their customer service was poor, but that is a far cry better than not being able to use my phone IN MY HOUSE WITH A SIGNAL BOOSTER THAT I HAD TO PAY EXTRA FOR!!!!  And believe me when I speak to anybody, I tell them to absolutely not ever go with AT&Tsucks!

    Hmm.  The only "known" variable here is the blackberry.  Are there other phones in the house that use the Microcell?
