I have very little coverage in my apartment. Verizon says my area is fine so I know it's the downstairs unit that is to blame. Short of moving, buying a service extender, or switching providers, I have one idea to ask you smart people. Our WiFi works great and allows me to use anything that uses data without a problem. If I switch to Hangouts as my default text app, will it work better by converting incoming texts from voice to data and do the same for outgoing texts from WiFi to voice? Hangouts works great for me so I wondered if it would work. Thanks!
