S6 Edge Bad Signal

I recently switched from an iPhone 5 to an S6 Edge. When I am at school (I'm a college student) I have perfect signal, no problems. When I go home, where I would normally have about 2-3 bars of LTE on my iPhone, the S6 only gets 1 bar of 1X and up to 1 bar of 3G. It got to the point where I could not send out any texts so I had to switch back to an iPhone. I really want to give it another try while I am still able to exchange through BestBuy, but I'm afraid the problem will still be there. Has anybody else had this problem or know how to fix it?

Some people have reported that changing the network mode improves signal strength. It's a worth a shot. Smiley Happy

Go to Settings => Mobile Networks => Network Mode: Preferred network mode: LTE / CDMA

Keeping it on Global is pretty useless unless you plan on going out of the country. It's just scanning for unneeded frequencies.
