Broadcast broadband reception, rather than an internet signal arriving via cable and maybe wi-fi afterwards, may be affected by the position of the modem within a dwelling. Sometimes the receivers are placed near windows that face transmitter points. Weather conditions and any structure between the transmitter and the receiver may affect reception. The service provider website typically offers a coverage map. If you are at the edge of the coverage area, signal strength not infrequently fluctuates. Query your service provider. You might repost a question with more detail about your setup. I am speculating a bit.
i woudl try runing cleaners 1st www.ccleaner.com and ace utilties get out junk thats choking it up and downlopad latest drivers from websites from today cheak ok then make sure u have all latest updates for windows installed
Your cellular carrier can provide you with a "signal booster" device that can repeat and boost a cellular signal you already get in your house. For example, if you consistently have one bar of coverage but no more at home, a booster can take that one bar and turn it into more bars. If you have one or two bars of coverage near a window but no coverage elsewhere in your home, a booster near that window can capture the signal and boost it, providing a strong signal throughout the rest of your home.
Some carriers offer such devices very inexpensively - $50 or maybe even free - especially if you're in an area where they know they know they have poor coverage. T-Mobile now offers such boosters for only a $25 deposit, which you can get back just by returning the booster to them.
Contact your carrier - or look at their website - to see just what they'll offer you and for how much.
Femtocells / Microcells
A femtocell - or "microcell" - is a small, low-power cellular base station that connects to the cellular network via your broadband Internet connection. Essentially, it's a small cellular signal tower that will provide a signal in and near your home, connecting to the larger mobile network over your Internet connection. This makes it ideal for situations where you don't even have a signal bar of coverage you can boost at home. The only "catch" is that your Internet connection must have a high enough download speed. Different carriers require different minimum speeds, but you should be fine as long as you have a solid broadband connection.
Ask your cellular carrier if they offer this sort of product and find out how much it will cost you. As with boosters and repeaters, a femtocell may be available at a steep discount from your carrier in areas they know they have poor cellular service.
You can also buy them easily on Amazon or almost any decent tech store - for instance the one pictured below works for AT&T and supports LTE (though it is a bit pricey), or you can get one that supports Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Cricket, and many others, but you won't get LTE support. Of course, since you likely have Wi-Fi in your house, LTE isn't really a big deal and the 3G will work just fine for calls and texts.
Editor's Note: For the official How-To Geek office we got a Samsung microcell device directly through Verizon, which wasn't cheap, and doesn't work all that well. And since it only works for Verizon, any of the people who come by who use other carriers have zero signal, which is really annoying. If we could do it over again, we'd have started with this zBoost microcell that supports virtually every cell provider and has many different models and options to choose from depending on the size of the house. They even have an optional antenna you can install on your roof to give cell coverage everywhere around your house. It's the best choice, and cheaper than most carriers will offer you.
Wi-Fi Calling and SMS
Wi-Fi calling is a feature you might remember from some years ago, but it's coming back with a vengeance. At the moment, in the US, only T-Mobile offers Wi-Fi calling for both Android phones and the iPhone. Sprint only offers Wi-Fi calling for select Android phones. AT&T and Verizon have announced plans to activate Wi-Fi calling in 2015.
Essentially, WI-Fi calling allows your smartphone to receive and place calls and communicate via text messages over a Wi-Fi network. Your home probably has Wi-Fi, so Wi-FI calling will let you use your existing wireless router instead of needing a new, specialized device. You can just improve your Wi-Fi signal strength, and all your devices will benefit!
Wi-Fi calling works transparently. When your phone is on Wi-Fi and has a poor cellular signal, it will connect to the Wi-Fi network and your phone calls and text will be sent and arrive over the Wi-Fi network. When you leave the Wi-Fi network, your phones and calls will be sent over the cellular network as usual. This is all designed to hand-off automatically, so you could start a phone call on your Wi-Fi network and your phone would automatically hand off to the cellular network as you walk out the door, with no interruptions.
WI-FI calling will also work on other WI-Fi networks, so it's helpful if you ever end up in another place where you have a poor cellular signal but have Wi-Fi. To use this, you'll need to ensure your phone has Wi-Fi calling support and that it's enabled. Android phones from T-Mobile and Sprint will often include this feature, so look up how to enable it on your specific model of Android phone.
The iPhone 6 has built-in Wi-Fi calling, although it currently only functions on T-Mobile. AT&T and Verizon plan to support it in 2015. To enable this feature on an iPhone, open the Settings screen, tap Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling, and activate it.
WI-Fi calling seems to be the future goal the industry - T-Mobile, especially - is pushing towards. With Wi-Fi calling integrated into your phone, you don't need to buy a specialized device. Your home Wi-Fi router works. And, when you go somewhere else where you have a poor signal, all they need is a Wi-Fi network and you'll be able to get a phone calls and SMS messages through it.

'Emergency Calls Only' message comes when there is no network coverage by the service provider. So when you get this message, try selecting your network from AUTOMATIC to MANUAL. Switch off your phone and see if you are getting some network. If still there is no network and same message appears then it means, you are at a place where the network strength of your service provider is poor. Try going to a place where the network strength is good.
Thanks and have a nice day.
The rule I follow when using a signal booster, is read the manual of my gateway and check the Max range of coverage, if it is 50 meters I'll place my signal extender at 25 - 30 meters away from the Router, if you go to the edge of coverage circle, your signal extender will suffer unstable signal, and would fail to boost the signal.
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
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

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Network connectin does not depend on the mobile model, it depends on the connection service provider that you have, Network coverage will not be there if you are in a place where for a few miles there are no tower of your service provider, if you are in a place where there are proper power signal and still you dont have proper network coverage then check whether you are in a closed room where no signals can enter, you will get the connection once you come to open places where your mobile will sense the signal,,,,,,,,,
Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
good luck with your fix,,, have a nice day,,
A VERY HELPFUL RATING IS APPRECIATED, Thanks Regards Arul
First, you should contact your service provider to make sure there is coverage where you are having the issue at. If there is coverage, the first step is to power your phone off and then on again. If that doesn't work your service provider can continue with other troubleshooting on their end such as making sure your account is set up correctly.
