What do you do when you are in areas with weak (one or two Bars) cell Signal?

I believe some RVers use Cell Phone Signal Boosters .

As Ed said, a cell phone booster. You could carry another phone on a different network in hopes they have a stronger signal or more towers. The only other choice is to just turn it off and relax.

WeBoost....not cheap, but well worth the money to have cell and internet when you need it.

Wilson we boost. We live out in the sticks and it works great. I could send a text but pics could take hours or a day to go through. Now i have lte two bars and sometimes three. I watch you tube and dw watches tv on ipad. $460 but far better than hughes net at $100 per month. Sometimes on Sunday its slow probably because of a large amount of traffic

Drive a few miles to where it is good. We don't use our phone much. Have a seperate mobile internet device that is used a lot more. Have never been without internet even when the phones don't work.

Another vote for Weboost RV. It often makes a huge difference in speed.
