Q. I just closed on my brand new home and can’t get a signal on my cell phone. What gives?
A. What gives is you should have checked your cell service before you purchased. Whether you’re purchasing resale or new construction, there are certain investigations you should perform before you buy. Most buyers just do the customary home inspection . But there’s so much more you need to check such as the crime rate, schools, airport noise, and yes, cell service. If you’re a local you know where Jacksonville’s dead zones are. But if you’re relocating it would be best to spend some time in your chosen neighborhood with your precious gadgets to ensure they work. The good news is you can always switch your cell service to a provider in your area. Unfortunately you can’t switch your house. Good luck.
