For something that costs an arm and a leg to use, cell phones sure do have poor reception at times. All cell phone users have had that moment where they try to angle their phone to get a better signal; sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Then there are those instances when you're on an important phone call and the call drops unexpectedly. This is something you never experience with a landline phone, but who wants to be attached to the wall when making a call? Cell phone reception is about as reliable as a car with three good tires in a blizzard.
