One suggestion I haven't seen yet: simply complain. Your cellular
service provider may install a new base station in the area if enough
people ask them to. Here in Europe, there is 1800 MHz digital service
nearly everywhere in and around cities, as long as you're above ground.
I haven't encountered a building yet that could kill an otherwise strong
signal. It's only when the signal is mediocre to marginal anyway that
thick walls will kill it.
