    Signal loss when sending a text.

    So ill write a text and ill have like 4 bars and as soon as I hit send, the bars take a dive and the message won't send. Does this like 3 times before it finally sends. It usually does it when I'm in my room. But my room only. Doesn't do it if I'm in anyone elses house. Anyone else having this issue?

    Question for you. What's your signal strength in dBm? Know where to find that?

    That has to be the WORST signal I've ever seen on a cell phone that actually can make calls/send texts. For reference, 60 feet from a tower I get -60dBm and signal strength roughly doubles for every 3 dBm change. So in your case you'd have twice as much signal at -100 as you do at -103, give or take. You may need to invest in a signal booster. If your phone has a rubber plug in the back you can build a cantenna to pop into it while you're home/stationary/whatever.

    Why is it so bad? Now its around -70 dbm, I'm at my friends house two houses down from mine! Could it be because I have a lot of guitar equipment in my room? Maybe my amp interferes? Wouldn't it have to be on for that to happen?

    Different materials affect different radio wavelengths in different ways. Also, the way you hold the phone. Yes, it's quite possible that the guitar equipment in your room is interfering with your signal, especially if you have any wireless equipment broadcasting. T-Mobile is GSM, but I'm not sure of the wavelengths they use -- especially in your area. If you have anything broadcasting on a nearby spectrum you might want to turn it off and see if it helps your signal.

    Steel roofs often interfere with your signal reception. Foliage (trees, bushes, etc.) can also seriously cut your bandwidth.

    How to build a tin can waveguide antenna

    Once you know what frequency range your local towers are you can use that page to design a cantenna to plug in. Assuming you have a plug. Still, you could actually use it to rig up a passive signal booting system, if you're technically inclined or REALLY want to boost your geek cred. :D
