, I'm not really seeing my issue. Even that question doesn't have all the twists mine does, and it didn't really have satisfactory answers. Basically, I work in a blast-hardened cave, and I need to get a cell phone signal to preserve my sanity.
Moved into new office building. All connectivity in the building is hardwired for security reasons. Our web browsing is severely limited by filters. My iPhone is my only connection to the outside world - email, facebook, text messages - if I can't use my iPhone, I'm cut off from the world for nine hours. The building is literally half-underground as it is built into a hillside, and the site is somewhat hardened - even more so than your average bear of a federal facility.
At my desk, my AT&T iPhone 4S gets 1 bar of E, if I'm lucky. Most of the time there is no signal at all. If I walk towards the only window, about 40 feet away (and faces an interior courtyard), I can get two or three bars of 4G. As I said, everything is hardwired - there is no wifi - so a femtocell won't work. What *will* work? I looked at this
, which has an antenna which can be taped inside a window. Assuming the powers that be won't shit their pants if I try to do that, will it even work?
Am I screwed? Should I just wait until all the bigwigs with AT&T bitch about their signals and the whole building gets a solution? (May never happen since the bigwigs have window access.)
Help! I'm in a cave and I can't call out!
P.S. If you recognize my location, give a shout out, so we can share our misery.
