My Note 2 has Horrible reception!!!!

I bought a Note 2 from a store in the mall and when I got it I called 611 to ask a question about my bill. I was on the phone for about 2 minutes and the phone disconnected. After that I kept getting a "not registered on network" message (or something like that) and could only connect a call if I restarted the phone and then it would only last for about a minute. When I got home I held the power button and volume key to do a factory restore and saw the ODIN menu, Obviously it has been rooted...

I took it back to the store and they kept it for like 3 weeks and finally called me and said it was fixed. I went to get the phone and it was working fine but the signal was not too great. they said it was because of the area and being in the mall. I have used it for the last 3 days and I cannot get any more than 2 bars anywhere I go?? I have yet to see 4G either, only 3G, and in places I know I can get service because I was using a galaxy S4 prior to this phone. The store said they replaced the antenna in the phone but I need this phone for my job and need to have reliable coverage but this phone isnt cutting it.

Should I try to root it and use a custom ROM and Radio to get better signal or should I just take it back? They dont have any other Notes for sale and the whole reason for me buying a new phone was so I would have the stylus for my customers to sign my phone. Any suggestions on a custom radio I should install if that is even an option?
