If it is the same cell company then probably a bad phone. Take it to their store and ask about a new, maybe free phone.

SOURCE: Ever since we bought a

One problem with digital television is that the carrier frequency of the channels was shifted to a higher frequency vs the old standard . These allotted frequencies require a whole lot more output power at the stations as well as they follow a straight line and the bounce (reflect) off of natural objects such as tree leaves, rain drops moisture, power towers etc. In other words unless you live right next to the transmission tower, you get a lousy picture. Since it is a digital signal, and your receiver does not collect more than a significant portion of the transmission signal, it cannot render the picture so, drop outs causes loss of signal and no picture at times.

That is why most people go to cable or satellite to get a continuous signal.

I would say that unless you put up a good active antennae, you will not get a decent picture. Even then you will not be satisfied. The stations will have to do a lot more work on their signals and up there power levels to compete with cable, but hey, they don't care about their over the air signal since they can sell their signal to the cable operators for lots of bucks and reach more eyes for their advertisers.

I have a unidenbc72xlt scanner--I live in a rural area and reception is terrible. when i get to city(about 25 miles away) it works good but at home is terrible--any solutions


Your ONLY solution is an external antenna. The best scanner is only as good as the antenna that feeds it. A discone would be the best, but a less-costly vertical would probably do a good job for you. The least costly, and least effective solution would be an indoor antenna - the ones enclosed in PVC pipe do a fair job. If you can't mount the antenna on your roof, a balcony or an attic will usually work fine. As a last resort, you can always set up a vertical inside a closet. eBay is a good source for scanner antennas, and you might also try www.ScannerMaster.com.

I installed the zenith Digital converter box lastnight..used an digital amplified indoor antenna..only got 5 channels but today its not recieving signal at all and i bought another indoor antenna thinking...


I understand your issue as not getting the Digital reception from your converter box. The antenna plays an important role in what you can get. If you still have the Amplified antenna try to reduce the amplification and readjust the antenna positions. You might have to do this several times until you get it right. Also, if you live in a city and not a rural location do not use an amplified antenna and see if it is any better.
Good Luck.

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0


If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

Intermittent reception with DTV converter box


Hello,

I install at least 2-3 antennas a week. While Analog stations were no big deal when it came to reception, Digital signals are very directional, and can be very fickle about reception sometimes. Digital is "all or nothing," meaning that if you get enough signal to get a picture, then great, but if you don't, it won't allow you to even try to make the picture.

My suggestion is to first try a 15-25 dB amplifier (with an FM trap) on the antenna. Use it first in-line, immediately following the antenna, before it is fed to any TV's. If that doesn't help, try re-aiming the antenna directly toward the city from which your signals are being broadcast. You'd be suprised how little you have to turn it to make a big difference.

Give these two things a shot. Hope this helps you...

Garmin Nuvi 760 loses satelite reception. Tried to reset to factory settings and still having problem.


You may need to buy an additional external GPS receiving antenna. I did for my 750.
Because we love our electronics so tiny, they use an internal antenna. The gold input on the back of it, is for an external antenna available for under $20 from ebay. I used it when I lost reception in NYC, and also in rural areas. The external one has q magnet on it, and you can put it on the roof and have the cord come in your window to the unit (better than arm out window!)

check here - where i bought mine

Rural addresses - Township & Range roads


With the Garmin Mapsource program just type in the name of the road and search. It shows up, and it's not saskatoon but corman park, although near to saskatoon, it's actually in a different area. This also happens when cities grow and small rural area's become part of the bigger picture, it's stil located where it historically was...looking for places can be sort of tedious. If I need to go somewhere, If i can't find it I ask for coördinates...the other way of getting there...A friend of mine lives on kitely line near jasper in Ont. the GPS knows the place as Line 3...huh?

Razr V# lost service after using external antenna


I have the same problem. Contacted 3rd party tech, take sharp pick or equal and there is supposedly a button in the very center of the antenna port of the phone. gently push the pick in the center of the jack and it will trip the switch. I tried it on my second damaged phone and it worked, so far.
