    Every phone has different characteristics regarding antenna strength, Even Mobile PC and other advanced phones have options to upgrade the software related to the radio part of the phone. If you provide the specfic model number or model name of the phone, I can see what other owners say about the merits or failings of a model's radio.

Why does screen read 'Searching' also have no dialling tone

Dear Pam,
The symptom you are having occurs only on a cell phone, and it happens when you phone is out of range of a tower.
Cell phones use signals that are relayed from towers, which is why many phones do not work at all way out in the country.
They are too far from a tower.
Most cell phones have some sort of an icon on the screen showing a thing resembling a tower, with some lines or bars along side it, showing you the strength of your signal.
The more lines or bars, the stronger your signal.
When you get too far from a tower, you will have no bars, and no reception.
God bless your efforts.

How do i stop calls from dropping

Check to see how many recieving bars you have when you make a call. I always look at my phone it has so many bars showing if I have good reception. There is dead zones where I can't even get out. Sometime you can buy a boosters for phones to get better recepetion.

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.

Cell phone has no bars

You do not have a tower in proximity of your home town from your carrier. First thing to do is call your carrier and alert them that you are not getting coverage. They will take your info with your exact location and send a tech out to figure out why you do not have service there. If they determine that you are in a area that just won't cover you then you can either get a cell phone booster or you can change services.

Samsung M520 Cell Phone 6 Months old. Always had 4 to 5 bars on campus (tower almost next door) yesterday my cell Phone started to dropping calls even when I was outside. I have only one bar if I can get...

It sounds like something is going on with the receiving and antenna components of your phone. Did your phone get wet? At this point you just might consider purchasing a new phone or better yet get a FREE phone from this company, they have excellent customer service and offer all of the major carriers! Have fun looking! :)

How to repair a lost signal cellphone

do a master rest, if that doesnt work, make sure it is not a service provider problem, so in other words check that other sim cards work if it is an unlocked phone.

if they dont work either then the phone sounds like it has a software problem. u can reinstall the software i think online, otherwise take it to a repair shop and if its below say $50 its prolly worth getting fixed, but since they are only 150 new anyway, work out if its worth it or not.

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!
