I'll look at pico cells and learn how VoIP might be useful.

I've had this loss/regain of signal for years with two different phones
(Treo 700p with Verizon Wireless CDMA and Nokia 6.1 Plus with AT&T GSM) and
in different places (my home office and a local library branch; others I
cannot recall). Over the weekend I was on a call and the other person said
my voice was cutting in and out but I had no interruption hearing them. I
don't know enough abuot cellular telephones to understand why (and don't
really care to learn all that) but it's annoying at best.

Thanks for your suggestions,
