    We live in an area with a weak signal made worse by the walls of the house being 14" thick stone.

    No network can penetrate it reliably. The one I'm on now won't work at all normally, but the phone goes into Voice-Over-LTE mode (?) and then works flawlessly.

    If I turn that off the phone is about the same as every other phone here - it will only make and hold calls if you lean out of an upstairs window.

    As mark7914 said, if the carrier doesn't have a tower near the "rural area", no cellphone is going to wok miracles. And if there's one house per dozen acres, it doesn't pay for them to build a tower in the area - it would take them decades to pay it back. If you can get a signal standing on the roof, a micro cell mounted on the roof might help. But if there's no signal at all, aside from a really high-gain passive repeater - two antennas, a high gain one aimed at the tower, a little omni inside the house, connected by cable. Maybe. If there isn't even enough signal for a high-gain antenna to pick up, and you don't have WiFi calling, there's nothing you can do.
