I am not going to go through all of your screen shots, it is difficult to follow, but you seem to be asking for them to provide you with a "booster". What these things generally do is provide a cellular signal and connect to the network using your home internet. However, since many phones now connect by "wifi" calling, these boosters are no longer necessary. Make sure you are on a carrier that supports wifi calling and are using a phone that supports it. If you do not have internet at home. and there is a signal that can be boosted then there are several cellular booster kits available but those can be several hundred dollars. You should not expect a carrier to provide you with one of those. There are many places across the country that have gaps in coverage or one bar.

If your cell provider does not have a signal where you live, you need to find out if any other provider does. There are cell phone black holes all over, where one provider may have a signal and others may not. There are also areas where no provider has a signal. That will improve (maybe) in the future if the provider expands its antenna system but that could take years, or never happen.

You can ask friends who use ATT/Verizon/Sprint/TMobile to visit you and see if any of them have a good signal. If one does you may need to switch cell provider. Most cell providers have senior citizen discount programs.
