Try using the app "open signals map" it should show the towers around you and they're signal strength. Also if you go into the dailer, hit *18 then call. Give it a second or two and you'll hear 3 beeps a pause, then 3 more beeps. This makes the phone find the strongest tower/signal and lock the device to it until you leave the area and the phone needs another tower to continue giving service.

Hope it helps

Do you need the app in order to use the *18 trick? It just told me that it was not available, and the call ended.
