    I just recently got the S3, and I'm very happy with it!
    I only have a small issue with it - it has problems staying connected to my carrier while I'm in school, specifically the cafeteria and rooms without windows, where 90% of the time I have no service, and the rest, it stays at 1 bar (interestingly it occasionally spikes up to full bars for a few seconds, without me moving it). Would there be any practical way of improving signal strength?
    Thanks!

    Edit: extra info, I am using the Bell LTE version in Canada in a region which supports LTE.

    If your on sprint your looking at 4 to 6 months of crappy service until they finish working on the towers.

    might be how the school is built. The university I go to has a wing (and ironically, it's the wing my department has been given...) where it is literally a conceit bunker. I kid you not, even wifi sometimes fails in there. Once you take two steps out of the doors, I get full bars and wifi hasn't been dropped.
