Reception/signal not found in a strong reception area
Hello, I've got a bit of a weird problem and the three tech teamhaven't been able to help yet. What happens is that I'll pull my phone out of my pocket and it will show no signal... no bars. However, It is in an area where I know there to be great reception. I assume that at some point, i travelled through an area where there was no signal and my phone just never realized that I came back into an area with good signal. At any rate, as it's happened a few times, I just tested it to see if it would receive a phone call in this state, and it does not. If I try to make a call, it says, no signal but immediately after it disconnects, it recognizes that there is a signal there, and then works properly again. Obviously though, it is not ideal, as I am missing calls if I have not noticed that it is in this state of denial :) Any ideas?

Hi, Are they the same models? The phone's capability to sustain a stable network coverage may vary even in model types. While at your home,remove the phone's battery and simcard and fit them again. Note how the phone's network signal registers. It may start very high and then drop drasticaly to very low or no signal at all or sustain a constant signal reception. If the reception's good in other areas,then your home area's network coverage may not be that good.
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.
When a phone has no reception, it means that the network coverage in that area is not strong enough to make calls.
Check the network setting of the phone if it is in automatic network search, if not you can set it to automatic search so that the network can automatically appear.
But sometimes the network of the phone you are using might not have a strong network in the area you are, so you can check that out too. You can also confirm with another person using the same network with your if network is on the persons phone or not.
Form there w will no where the problem really is, if it is from the phone or from the network you are using.
Your phone's signal may depend on the reception provided by your network provider, like for example...if you are near to one of your network provider's cell site or transmitter, you can get stronger signal for your phone...else, you'll have a weaker signal or reception..specially if your location while using your phone is in a remote area and no cell site or transmitter nearby.
Call your cell phone provider and they may make a satelite adjustment for the areas you state that are weak.(see if they tell you that your the first one to tell them this about the weak signal) If they cant help ,get a better phone that will get the signal you need. Please Rate This !!!!!
I have the same problem. Contacted 3rd party tech, take sharp pick or equal and there is supposedly a button in the very center of the antenna port of the phone. gently push the pick in the center of the jack and it will trip the switch. I tried it on my second damaged phone and it worked, so far.
