I'd suggest trying different areas in the basement/going down the stairs, etc.. to see if there is any great fluctuation in signal strength in the different areas. It's quite possible that the antenna and/or radio on the iPhone is in such a place that the building construction/materials interfere with the signal... and remember that Apple fudged the signal bars back when they released iOS 4.01 (I think that was it)... to make the "bars" bigger - the effect was to make it look "better" in terms of the received signal strength.
Also try upstairs above the area(s) in question at lower levels - hold the phone on or near the floor to see what happens.
Experiment with it a little and see if you notice any trends...

while in the basement, try doing the *228 to update roaming capabilities and signal strength, when I had issue in my olf apartment which was a basement apt I wasnt able to get a strong signal so I went to the corner where the signal was weakest and did the *228 and that helped fix the problem
