I live in one... I cannot get cell phone reception in my house, outside my house,or on the driveway, but I can get reception a block away if the wind blows just right. I do not have a land line so I depend on my cell phone, so if I want to call someone or receive a call I have to stand around the corner. What a pain. It reminds me of Green Acres (remember that show in the 60s?) when Lisa and Oliver had to climb the telephone pole to make a call. I really do I like my home though, it is quiet, nice yard, fenced, roomy enough for all of us...I guess there ups and downs of everyhome.
