    New to smartphones so please forgive if questions seem dumb.
    So excited to get new phone, very nice looking, great features, studied to learn how to use it, but its been almost useless. In my home and yard only sometime I get one bar of service. I live in the country and never have had good service but phones have always worked. Was at in-laws Sunday, no service, someone standing beside me with an iphone had 2 bars of service. Grandson on iphone here in the house has 1-2 bars and phone works fine. I even have a $15 Walmart phone that works in the house. Driving through town and all bars light up but drive 100 feet more and it drops to 1 bar. I hope this is not normal but don't know what to do. Everyone's phone works in my house but mine.
    Thanks for any help.

    A couple of steps that might help.
    Clear system cache. Post (or Google) if you need instructions.
    Reseat your Sim card.

    If the phone still has poor reception, call your provider and let them troubleshoot.
