Question about Nokia 6120

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?

My mobile has a special problem. The mobile shows a weak signal and sometimes zero signal at my home even though the other nokia mobile signals are very high at my home.(same network other nokia mobile...


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.


Hope this helps.Thanks!

It catches network when their is strong signal but in areas that are not having strong signals it says no network coverage


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 magically appear.
edit Steps
  1. 1Battery. 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 higher.

  2. 2Landscape. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 one location.
  5. 5Change networks. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Im gettin no reception at all


Hi,

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.

Take care.

No signal


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.

Razr V# lost service after using external antenna


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.
