    That sounds like an issue with your carrier. Perhaps they are doing maintenance on the tower.

    probably since im 100% everywhere else just not in this area and it randomly started happening when i woke up first call so possibly something went wrong with the tower while i was asleep or ya they are doing maintenance

    If it's ok everywhere else it would not be a problem with your phone.

    My house is fine but within a few blocks is a zone like you describe. I have learned not to traverse that corner or expect to lose the connection. Been a persistent ATT cell issue.

    I had a similar thing happen. Had a great signal at home, then one day - bupkus! So being the technician type that I am, I called ATT to make them aware that they might possibly have a problem at a nearby tower. On the initial call they took my information and thanked me. I wondered if anything would come of it.

    A week or so later, they called me back to let me know that yes, there indeed was a blown amplifier, however it might take 4 to 6 months before they could get to fixing it. Well, I was impressed that they checked it out, but disappointed that it would take so long to repair it. Not more than a month after that, I was getting a strong signal at home again.

    Contact your carrier, maybe they have a problem they are not aware of.

    Yeah I will contact them...but the 3g signal im getting on my phone seems to be full i have 5 bars and all its just the phone calls seems to keep cutting out in this area...strange

    and yes i did try a battery pull im pretty sure its just the tower for the area because right when i go down the hill few blocks everything crystal clear no cut outs or anything
