you might look at getting a Moto.
do you have any friends that are on the same carrier, but have different make phones? ask them to come over and test it out.
No, it's definitely a carrier issue. Everyone in my area with VM or Boost has the same problem. The coverage map shows excellent, but it's 100% opposite in actual use. You can even spot the VM/Boist/Sprint user easily, because we all go outside to get a half decent signal. And to add insult to injury, the tower is only 6/10th of a mile from me.
