I am posting on this forum because I ever since I switched to T-Mobile back in March I have had pretty decent service everywhere I go with one exception: The office that I work.
Don't get me wrong I don't have an issue with having spotty coverage here and there but for the most part my family has had positive experiences being with T-Mobile. Being former Verizon customers we were paying a lot for service (we never had issues with coverage though). I have tried many different solutions to have "some" coverage at my office since I spend a large majority of my time there. I don't need blazing fast LTE but I would like to at least depend on T-Mobile to deliver calls and texts to me while I'm at work.
Before anyone asks:
Yes, I have tried the Cellspot
Yes, I have tried WiFi Calling
and finally, Yes, I have tried DIGITS
WiFi Calling and DIGITS work well but they both require I rely on a different provider for service. The Personal Cellspot would be fine if I was using it for my house but I don't know where I be authorized to place it and if it would be secure (I wouldn't want someone to steal it).
So far the main workaround I have found is I rely on a MiFi device from Verizon to supplement my coverage via WiFi Calling. I have a Verizon unlocked iPhone 6S which thankfully supports most carriers as well as WiFI Calling. Verizon offers a plan (it's a little tricky to get, I had to talk to two reps at Verizon before they were able to get me this plan) that for $10 a month I get one Gig of Hotspot data (Every Gb is billed at $10/Gb). It's pretty reliable and the cheapest option I found to help my poor coverage. Thankfully if I only use the MiFi for WiFi Calling it doesn't burn through data and I end up with a bill for $10 a month. If my office had WiFi I would have no issues with coverage but as it stands I wish I didn't have to go through all this trouble. I know that I am not the only person in my office who has zero service from T-Mobile here.
I look forward to any responses/feedback on this and I hope my solution provides some kind of workaround to anyone facing a similar issue.
