    Tried several locations around town. As you might expect I had varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, although reception was good in some areas, two out of four bars was common. Final stop was at a Verizon store where I switched service to Big Red. I realize I'll be giving up WIFI calling, but I'll trade that for better reception. Thanks everyone for all the advice. In the future I'll stick to carrier-branded phones.

    Finally added signal strength software to all my household cell phones. Turns out I must live in the Black Hole of Calcutta. Pulling -101dB on my Pixel 2XL, 99 on my Note 9, and 92 on my Moto X4 (all on Verizon). I knew trying to compare bars was not ideal since there's no uniformity between manufacturers, but still getting a stronger signal than what I got on T-Mobile.

    Not like you guys living over the pond where the reception problems must be a pain, we live in a village in the sticks of East Yorkshire in the UK. Cellular reception is pretty crap out here but thanks to EE we have a fantastic WiFi calling.

    Pretty crappy here - Swisscom, Switzerland. Got great reception with the Pixel 3XL. Wonder if the note9 just doesn't support the LTE band they use here (no, it's not an imported device)
