I have upgraded to a smart fone and my area of my yard and surroundings is a dead zone as told by verizon. I have a network extender in the house and it helps when in the house, though the other phone actually picked up better with it ( must have had a better antenna than my Samsung galaxy 3 . Outside in the yard anywhere not in the front of the yard, it pretty much is one bar, sometimes none and the signal is awful. Now that I have my mancave setup I will be spending alot of time in there and i need reliable , or better service at least. We had cell phone repeaters installed at the job that works great but I'm not trying to go expensive and just wondering what kind of cell phone signal boosters that might be plug and play that will help and won't require much installation or running alot of wires, digging holes, ect. Hoping maybe one of you guys had a similiar issue that you might can tell me what you did. And hopefully it will help outside as well but even if its placed inside of cave and works only in there mostly, i will be happy. I can always go outside in the cave and talk.
