    My wife's phone gets no cellular reception inside our new apartment. We've never had this issue before and my phone gets great reception. They're almost the same damn phones too, she has a Galaxy S7 and I've got an S8. Really frustrating because we've not budgeted for this but it's kind of critical that her phone work at home. I had hoped to get a longer life out of the phone but we had to replace the screens on both our phones a few months back and the guy completely botched it. My wife's screen is glitching out, my screen has bad burn-in and cloudy camera lenses so we were going to upgrade them sooner or later anyways. I had just hoped it to be a bit later....

    Due to the rushed nature of having to replace her phone, I'm going to have to wait longer to upgrade mine than I had anticipated. Oh well; at least it works.

    Doubtful. They do have those for some of the major carriers but our carrier is one of those spectrum resellers like Cricket. Options for stuff like are pretty limited with the second tier services. I'll still check it out though, thank you.

    Edit: I checked and they don't have anything like that for my service. They do sell mobile hotspot modems but these only provide data and not voice or SMS. I did see signal boosters for sale from third-party providers but they started at $500 which is way more than what I want to spend, especially since the problem is likely with my phone and not my service.

    I finally got close to my first pacman killscreen last night (basically the game breaks on level 256). After playing for about 4 hours and getting to around level 250, I decided to set up a camera to capture the moment (because why not). I then immediately died and now just have a video of me swearing.

    My wife has learned over the years to throw me a bone with hints.
    e.g. I'm going to the hairdresser and will be back in a few hours. (hint for me to compliment her when she gets back)
    Just one of the reason I appreciate her so much.
