How to deal with cell phone dead zones in your house

•, by Whitson Gordon

You've just moved into a lovely new house complete with everything you ever wanted—except the ability to call anyone. If you don't seem to get a cell signal inside your home or office, here's how to keep making calls and texts.

Enable Wi-Fi calling and texting

All four of the major U.S. service providers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint), as well as a few other prepaid carriers, support a feature called Wi-Fi calling, which allows you to make and receive calls over your home's wireless internet instead of a cellular connection. This works with text messages too, so you can keep texting your friends whether you have service or not. As long as your Wi-Fi is decent, you'll be able to make calls throughout your dead zone of a house.
