Getting signal

Unlocked refers to removing software that keeps a phon e"locked" to a specific service provider. Sounds like the phone you have is on a carrier that has poor coverage in your area. I would suggest contacting the provider of your phone to see if they can either 1) update the phones info so it can access other towers (for example - just because it is on Verizon doesn't Mena it is programmed to access all towers as towers are used by contract and towers are often updated) 2) provide you with a phone that is on a different carrier that has better coverage in your area.

"emergency calls only" will occassionally display on my alcatel cell phone.At that time I can't make other calls. What is wrong?

Emergency calls only is a symptom where a cellphone loses its registration to a valid network operator. It usually happens to me when I am in another country and the cellphone cannot locate valid operators. Looks like some telcos choose particular network partners. What I do is choose the network operator manually in the phone's setting.

If you are in your home country and this happens, it only tells you that you are out of coverage area and the phone is losing connection to your network operator. Maybe you are inside a building with thick walls which cause poor reception. You may try choosng an area where the symptom goes out.

If I remove SIM card from Motorola 376g. Cell phone will that bring my bars back

Roaming service towers cause interference or drops in call reception. Refer to phone service provider coverage map.

Motorola 376G cell phone has no towers

Valleys close to wireless towers usually cause call drops. Wireless carriers are always competing for coverage areas and improvements in reception. Switching carriers or buying prepaid emergency phones for dropped call areas is helpful.

I just bought a Tmobile lg optimus l9 yesterday for myself. I live in a suburb, but dont usually have coverage problems. Well, today I went into New Orleans, and when I came back to Destrehan, I had ZERO...

Have you tried going into your Mobile Networks and Network Operators settings? In the Mobile Networks settings, you should find "Network Mode". Check to make sure that is in "GSM/WCDMA (auto mode)" If that doesn't work, try clicking the "Network Operators" in the same settings group and then hit "Search networks".

My mobile has a special problem. The mobile shows a weak signal and sometimes zero signal at my home even though the other nokia mobile signals are very high at my home.(same network other nokia mobile...

Are they the same models?
The phone's capability to sustain a stable network coverage may vary even in model types.
While at your home,remove the phone's battery and simcard and fit them again.
Note how the phone's network signal registers.
It may start very high and then drop drasticaly to very low or no signal at all or sustain a constant signal reception.
If the reception's good in other areas,then your home area's network coverage may not be that good.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

It catches network when their is strong signal but in areas that are not having strong signals it says no network coverage

Keep in mind, poor reception is not something that your service provider will fix just because you want them to. It must be justifiably cost effective for them to put up new towers, which will ultimately be criticized by cities, home owners associations, etc. Most users think there is nothing they can do to improve their cell phone reception by themselves. This is most certainly untrue, and the following will explain what you can do to ensure great mobile coverage without waiting for a new tower to magically appear.
edit Steps
  1. 1Battery. Your cell phone uses a lot more power when connecting a call than when it is on standby. Often, your battery can be strong enough to attempt a call, but not strong enough to find a signal. If you find you are having signal problems, try to keep your battery charged to 2 bars or higher.

  2. 2Landscape. Buildings and other large structures are very unfriendly to cell phone signal. Rather than making calls from deep inside buildings try moving outside or to a window to place your call. If you are having reception problems on the street try walking to the nearest intersection as they typically have better coverage. Cellular band radio waves do not effectively penetrate earth: if you are underground you will likely receive no signal.
  3. 3Install a cellular repeater. If you are having cell problems in one location, such as your home or office, then try installing a cellular repeater. Cell phone repeaters pick up low cell signal with an antenna, boost the signal and broadcast it over the coverage area. They typically need at least 2 bars of signal where the antenna is placed (usually outside or on the roof) but can substantially improve cell reception, as well as battery life and data download speeds. Some repeaters might need technical knowledge such as the frequency of your carrier, and only work for one service provider. For a less technical approach that improves reception on all carriers, use a dual-band cell phone repeater.
  4. 4Upgrade your antenna. A few cell phone manufacturers make a "Hi-gain" antenna for their handsets, which may be changed in-store or by the user at home. Although these won’t improve signal as much (or at all) as a repeater these antennas are relatively inexpensive and you are not confined to one location.
  5. 5Change networks. Most networks operate independently of one another, using their own frequencies and constructing their own cell phone towers. Chances are if the signal is bad with one network you can improve by switching. Most cellular networks these days allow you to transfer your phone number when you change provider.
  6. 6Hold your phone correctly. Mobile phone antennas are designed to project a signal outward, perpendicular to the long axis of the antenna. As such, mobile phones seek signals in a donut-esque shape around the antenna. Normally, when a mobile is held upright, this is not a problem. However, if you are holding your phone in a strange way, such as on its side or upside down, you will hinder the operation of the antenna. Hold your phone upright to guarantee that your phone can "see" your carrier signal.
  7. 7Host a cell site. This may take time, but where cell phone reception is inadequate property owners can host small cell sites on their properties for major wireless carriers. 3rd parties with Wireless Revenue Programs allow you to register your property to be eligible. Then when there is carrier interest in the area you'll be on the short list of places they choose from and will have optimal coverage. They may even pay your phone bill.

I cannot send or recieve calls on my phone, unless its in roaming

You may not have coverage in your area unless your roaming, call your cellphone carrier and ask if you have service at the location! if you do you may have an issue on your carriers end, call tech support and ask whats going on.
If you can make calls whilst roaming, there should be no reason you can't when on your normal carrier.

Unknown letter in the display

'G' stands for GPRS. Just check if your GPRS is activated or not. It is shown only when GPRS service is active. You can deactivated it through contacting your cellular service provider.
