Default Best phone for rural area

I have been a T-Mobile customer since 2004. I travel a lot in rural areas throughout the midwest, but mainly in Missouri.

I used the search features on these forums and couldn't find this question already answered.

What is the best phone for good signal and less dropped calls? I don't care about features other than the phone that gives me the best chance of having a connection.
The guy at the T-Mobile store said Nokia but are there specific quad-band Nokias that would be better?

Well quad-band is not going to matter unless you are traveling outside of the country. I would recommend the Nokia 6301 as it is a good reception phone and has the Hotspot@Home feature built in that allows for WiFi calling. This will allow you to connect to WiFi routers if available in areas that have little or no reception. Just know that you will have to know the passwords to connect to the WiFi routers if they are password protected. Hope this is helpful
