    That's not an EVO issue. If there's no service at your school then there's nothing you can really do about that. My school is built like a bunker and I get no service in any of my classrooms so I just use Wifi which can be spotty too for me.

    No...it depends on the building and if there's any towers in the area.

    Its relative to your location. At my school, ATT people have to go outside to check voicemail, while VZW and Sprint are fine. In other places its the opposite. No network can cover you 100% of the time.

    At the high school my daughter attended they intentionally built the school so that you could not make cell phone calls. All calls were made from landlines unless you went outside of the school and walked a little bit away from the buildings, so it is possible that in certain schools there would be absolutely no cell reception available.

    schools may also invest in things to block cell signal i know of a school around me that did that but they had to stop blocking the signal in case of emergency's and someone needed to use a cell phone.

    Cell signal blockers are a violation of FCC rules, so I wouldn't believe any of the myths that pass around the schools.

    I think it's more in the design of the building. Even with a tower right outside the building, there's only so much steel and concrete a 1.9GHz signal can penetrate. With a lot of the schools designed for other purposes (like hurricane shelters in my state), they are usually built tough.

    But then, you're not in school to use your cell phone. You're there to learn, right?
