I recently bought the Samsung S950C Galaxy S phone from Walmart and am considering returning it. (I wanted the Galaxy SII but was told by a sales person that it wouldn't work in my area (03813)). The S950C uses Verizon towers, and the Galaxy SII uses AT&T.
The problem is...when I'm in my house, I only get from 0 to 3 white bars, and on a rare occasion, I'll get 4, never all 5 (I forgot to notice the bars when I've been out on the main road, 8 mins. away.). I do live in a pretty rural area of Center Conway, NH.
So is this issue a Straight Talk signal issue, or do I have a lousy signal from Verizon's towers? What would cause this issue, and who should I call about it...Straight Talk or Verizon? Do you think it could be this particular phone, and that I should return it and get the same thing, or wouldn't that change the signal? Another problem is that when downloading apps, wallpaper, etc., it sometimes times-out many many times.
Well, thanks in advance for your help.
