I've been plagued with terrible service at my house since I got my Droid earlier this year, and actually since I've had Verizon. I *never* have enough service to even make a call and texts sometimes hang for 20 minutes before going through. I worked around this by connecting to wifi and using google voice for texting needs, and my home number for calls. I've seen the option to 'enable data roaming' many times, but always avoided it because it says you may incur massive charges. Well after a little research, Verizon doesn't charge anything for roaming whatsoever. I enabled that and have FULL SERVICE with 3G at my house! It's amazing. I will still use wifi but being able to send and receive texts/calls from my cell phone is an amazing experience. Give it a shot and let me know your results!
