    easily but our cell phone reception is very poor. Is there any cell phone

    You're likely to get in trouble if you try to dam any of the Great Lakes.

    If you can see the towers, but reception is poor, the likely explanation is
    that none of those towers belongs to the company providing your cell phone
    service.

    ** A cell phone needs to an ID message transmit to the tower first to be
    recognised by the system.

    So the only "enhancer" that works is a high gain ( ie directional) antenna
    pointing at the nearest tower.

    There are devices, but inquire with your carrier. I heard they can help if
    you bitch enough.

    I used to, and still do have poor reception at a resort, both Verizon and
    ATT. You go out a few miles into the lake and reception is great. I also
    used to hook into a Canadian tower 50 miles away.

    I used to have great USCellular signal strength, but they changed
    something and now I only get 1 or 2 bars signal strength where before
    it was 3 or 4 bars. Still works ok, except in basement workshop.

    DSL is iffy for this device. My DSL (Dial-up Speed if Lucky) won't work with the Cisco system. It's too slow-calls break up and buffer, just like any other download. Cable modem will be no problem.

    If you are Verizon, try dialing *228 #2. If you are within 5 miles of
    your companies antenna shouldn't need any enhancement.

    Oh, by the way, In Israel all school teachers are armed, and in the last 10
    years they have only lost 3 students.

    Food for thought.
