Treo 650 and cellular reception/dropped calls question-PLEASE HELP

    Hi all,

    I recently went from a Motorola V710 (Tri-band) cellular phone through
    Verizon to a Treo 650 (all digital) smartphone. I had very good
    reliability with cellular call connections with my Motorola phone, but
    the features of the Treo are very impressive. Although the Treo is
    generally pretty good with calls while in my car, I do have trouble
    with it in the Hospital at times and often at home. Verizon has told
    me that it is an all digital phone and that the indoor coverage is not
    guaranteed to be as good outdoor. This really seemed like a lame
    response. I especially need much more reliable coverage in my house
    with it. In various areas it goes from one or two signal bars to zero,
    but the signal also tends to fluctuate even when the phone remains in
    one place. Is there anyway to improve reception in my house. I have
    tried the *228 programming with no improvement. Can anyone recommend a
    Digital Cellular Signal Booster that is wireless or something that I
    can purchase from my home? I really prefer wireless as I don't want to
    have to plug my phone into anything while in my house to be able to
    use it reliably.

    Thanks in advance
    Steve

    Yep. Moral of this story - make sure TXT is included in your plan and
    don't go over your allotment.

    No, taken from your pocket!

    Proof positive that your contract (i.e., the Customer Agreement) doesn't
    mean squat. It binds you not them. They can change whatever they want
    whenever they want. Your only option is to get out of your contract with no
    cancellation charge.

    People really get pissed off when a company pulls crap like that. I know I
    am. My contract is up next month and I'm sure going to look around. I have
    no loyalty to Verizon after all the nickel and dime crap they've pulled.
    They sure don't show any to me!

    Advice to the Verizon suits: keep your covenant with your customers!!
