Question about LG C1500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Bars but no service

I have an LG C1500 that I bought on ebay. I can be 300 yrds from a cell phone tower, show all 5 bars and when I try to call I get Service Unavailable. Also, the AT&T logo does not show when I get the Service Unavailable message. Any clues on how to fix this?

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 got rly bad signal on my lg dare.but on my other cells the signal is very good.anyway i can boost the signal on my dare,or can maybe sumthing be loose inside the fone itself?

Yes, the same happened with my Nokia 3500. In order to use gprs you require quality signal on your phone but my Nokia 3500 never gave me signal more than 1 bar whereas it has 5 bars. I tried a lot with my service provider and Nokia help desk but to no avail then I removed the lamination from my mobile and there it is all 5 bars came. Then I thought what might be the problem. In my case the case came with 5 metalic links on the top side. which were like anteena and due to lamination they were unable to access the tower signal. You need to check out your phone for such anteenas. meanwhile I'll check your model with my friends. As LG will never give me hints through website or on internet.

Sanyo pm 8200 sprint service no signal

Not sure about the bars, but you can go to the settings in the main menue and try to go to roam only. It could be that you r carrier is having a problem with their tower. Your phone, normally, will try to stay on your carriers towers. If you force it to a roaming status, you might get a better signal, but on a roaming network.

Good luck!

Lg kg800 will not connect to ATT

you first need to know the network coming with the first before buying it...and what network AT&T works on.

for example

LG KG800 works on these networks

850/1800/1900 or 900/1800/ need to look at the box to see which network your phone comes with.

Try resetting the phone to factory resetset, it will ask for the code it is there in your manual. And please check the SIM card whether it works on other cell phone or not.
