Question about Audiovox SMT5600
My phone works great at Work and Home, but has numerous Dead Zones, where it keeps Searching for signal. My Razor always worked and rarely had Signal problems in these same areas. Is this a bad phone or weaker receiver?
I see that this phone allows for an External Antenna. Does this mean it needs it?
Not necessarily. If you very carefully open up the upper dark portion of the back of the phone (where the antenna extension is), you'll see that the antenna of the phone is actually a metal track which winds around the back of the headplate.
Check to make sure the two prongs which touch this headplate can do so without any problems. If the internal antenna is corroded, it may need to be replaced.
Most cellphones have varying antenna power, so you can expect to see differences when comparing two cellphones side by side. If you find your phone has no signal mostly when driving, check out this link: http://www.cellantenna.com/Boosters/cellphone_signal_boosters.htm
I hope this helps.
