    My house is a t-mobile weak spot (usually zero bar or empty triangle, sometimes 1 bar, occasionally 2 bars).

    When I go outside the signal meter sometimes is stuck at zero bar or empty triangle until I rebooted the phone, then it may return to 3 or 4 bars.

    Why is this necessary? Is this a bug?
    I heard toggling airplane mode also works without having to reboot. I haven't tried it yet.

    Yeah the phone is probably locking onto a weak tower at home then staying connected when you leave.
    Cycling airplane mode should connect it to the strong tower instead of rebooting
