Technology Recommendations

Cell Phones

With a wide variety of cell phone carriers and building locations, it is difficult to predict cell coverage in all buildings and every part of the campus for each carrier. 

 

What we know

  • Several troublesome buildings have enhanced signals for AT&T and Verizon networks and those networks provide a good outdoor signal as well. 
  • As typical with cellular, there are troublesome areas for most carriers
  • Messiah communicates concerns to cellular carriers as opportunities arise

 

Wifi Calling

Depending on your phone and carrier, you may be able to enable WiFi Calling which can assist in areas with low signal.  Some people have had good success with this option while others have not; it seems to depend on the phone/carrier combination which are many.
