Poor Reception on a Uk Version Motorola V3x in the US
Hello, When I got the phone new, reception was very good. I now experience multiple dropped calls unless i'm standing in just the right place. Garbled voice talking and listening both during most calls.
Also, this is a UK (European) software version where spelling of menu items are a bit strange. "Personalise" and the like. Is there a way to load the US version of the software for this phone?

Yes they is you can take it to amobile service center and have them reflash the US Verison but you should go to network settings and change the auto to manual search for the band this should give you a better lock on the network and fewer drop calls.

Your problem isn't your service provider-its your phone! I have a different LG phone than you, but from my own experience and what i have heard from many people who have LG phones, they all have reception problems. LG phones have terrible antennas in their phones. I'm trying to work on a solution to that now, if its possible. Contact me(True Love in DC) in a week to see if i discovered any solutions. In the meantime, a good thing to know about reception with ANY phone is this: the antenna is always at the top of your phone. Avoid holding or placing your hand and fingers near the top of your phone. And NEVER bend over while talking on the phone as u will be pointing your phone towards the ground. This almost ALWAYS cuts off your reception or even disconnects your call in progress. Learn the best reception spots in and around your home and other places you may be at too. Avoid walking around while talking on the phone. Certain buildings or parts of buildings play a part in your reception as well as certain lighting in the building. And finally, atmospheric conditions(storms, cloud cover, etc) are a big contributer in reception problems!
Hello Blwas5 hi, If some channels have sound and others none, its either the TV has poor reception or, its the channel's weak signal. check them both or see if your neighbors TV acts like yours. If thy neighbor reception is good, then thy TV has poor reception, you can't do anything to fix that. get another TV with good reception qualities.
i have the same problem which only occurs when i get off the elevator to my apartment. someties the bars come back but often they don't. so now before i get in the elevator i call voicemail and don't end the call until i'm in my apartment. the call doesn't get dropped and when i end the call, the bars remain.
the reception quality around your house has dropped, probably because of new high rise buildings in the area or trees interfering with the reception. Best option buy a network booster to improve your reception quality.
You do have some hope left, there are special routers that you can buy to create a small cell zone that goes through your internet connection. They are pretty expensive. http://www.wi-ex.com/ is where you can find one.
