Just moved to LWR Central Park neighborhood area and got anywhere from "No Service" to 1 bar all weekend long. Does AT&T offer a signal booster homes in this area?

I’ve heard they do but you have to push hard to get it for free. My iPhone has the ability to use WiFi for calls and I use AT&T so you might look into that, first.

You might consider switching your cellphone service. I don't know how the AT&T coverage is in Florida, but the T-Mobile coverage is significantly inferior to the Verizon coverage between Orlando to Naples when we compared both the T-Mobile coverage from our cellphones to the Verizon coverage of my work cellphone. We don't have any problems with the T-Mobile coverage in Minnesota, but we switched to Verizon in preparation for our upcoming move to Florida. We haven't had any Verizon coverage problems on our visits to Florida after we made the switch from T-Mobile to Verizon. Verizon is probably the most expensive provider, but seems to have the best coverage. If you have a few lines in an Unlimiited family plan, Verizon costs only slightly more than T-Mobile on a per line basis. If we only had two lines, the Verizon would cost would be about double the T-Mobile cost on a per line basis.

I had problems with my iPhone 7, but after the upgrade to an X I have no issues.
If you just get here make sure to upgrade carrier settings if it's an iPhone and see if that helps.
The ONLY spot I get no service is across the street from the new Earth Faire grocery store if I go into the Quest diagnostics lab
