No service at home

I have the Iphone 3G-S (30 GB) and lately I have a weird problem where I wont get hardly any service (no bars) at home while inside. Sometimes it will even say "searching" for the network. I called AT&T and they checked as much as they could and couldnt find any problem. I took the sim card out and put it back in, same problem. I can get internet (3G or Wi-Fi) while in my house, but hardly any bars. But once in awhile, Ill have full service, start to txt or do something on the phone and the bars will drop to almost nothing. I do have a wireless router at home that I use for wi-fi when at home, but have had that for a very long time and the phone for over a year and this no service problem just recently started. Funny thing is, when I walk outside of my condo, I dont have that problem, only when Im inside my house. Does anyone have any suggestions or should I just take the phone to AT&T store, but Im afraid they wont find anything wrong either if when I called them, they couldnt find any issue. Please help! Thank you.

Update. Was with family yesterday and my aunt and mother both have AT&T (but not i-phones) and they have same problem - hardly any bars for service. When I called AT&T Friday, they didnt see any problems. Going to AT&T store later to find out more.

It's simply a "black-spot"...I have the same issue here in NZ, at my house.

I have virtually no 3G signal and very little 2G signal.

I have learned to live with it.

I know this is not available everywhere yet but it should be soon. And this would defiantly fix your problem.
