One more thing the KX-TG764x models have that this one does NOT:

FWIW, I have the same issue as you (very poor cell coverage at home). This helped - when I had a "good" spot to receive cell signal, but then I moved to another nearby unit and ended up with no more "good" spots.
After a few complaints to AT&T that had little to no effect, I finally lost it when my wife called me with an emergency and I couldn't understand what she was saying.
Luckily it wasn't a huge emergency, and luckily I got an understanding agent that walked me through the costs and rebates for a microcell (aka femtocell) and at the end of the day it costs me $20 net (after cost, rebate, bill credit and required monthly service). The only problem is if I clog my upstream Internet connection my callers say I get choppy, but that makes sense since a microcell is essentially VoIP.
