Question about Nokia 3120 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Fading Signal Strength

I've notice that the longer my Nokia 3120 is 'on' it has a problem maintaining a signal. It will slowly loses its signal strength until it fades out completely. I've ordered a $1.99 'internal antenna booster', which may just be a gimmick but worth a try. Do you have any other ideas or suggestions as to why it does this and if there is anything else I can do or try?

Re: Fading Signal Strength

Could be a worn rf modulator
this controls the radio frequencies.
If you are having trouble with dropping calls that last for a little longer than normal 1-2 mins then that would be my guess

I have a poor signal how can i make it better nokia 5230 so i can call on my phone

First of all,put the SIM card into another phone which you can be sure that there are no faults with it and check whether you're getting a good enough signal strength than your nokia 5230 phone.
If you're not,then its not a fault with your nokia 5230.
If your area has a poor signal strength from your current service provider,move into another service provider who has more signal strength within your area if you can.

I am having signal problem


this is because the strength of the signal coming inside your house is less so the mobile is not picking up the signal.this is because of the walls and bulkheads surrounding the room which reduces the strength of the signal
