Sony experia E4 keeps on losing the network and how do i fix that?


That would be a signal problem not a phone issue. Contact your service provider and see if they can change your cell tower priority to boost the signal strength..

Here's a trick to play Tetris, also known as Klotz on a Siemens S1.
Turn the phone on. Enter PIN. Before the telephone has logged in to the your GSM net do the following steps.
1: Choose F 9 (function settings)
2: Choose send own number and push the right button for choose.
3: Push 9
USE 2 as < and 8 as > , rotate the klotz with 5 and drop with 4.
[I have just heard from one of the programmers of the phone that Tetris was in the phone during development, but it was removed before it was produced. Apparently someone has the patent on games in mobile phones and Siemens didn't want to pay the licensing fees. It was either in Menu F-9-9 or it's not there at all.]

What is solution of network not available ?


You are too far away from a cell tower. Buy a device that boosts the signal strength. This may not help you if you live where there are mountains or large hills.

NO NET WORK AVAILABLE


Data will only work when you have a Wi-Fi hotspot, or your signal strength is LTE, data on most carriers will not be provided with just a cell tower cell signal

Signal weak


I'm assuming that your cell phone works fine.

Your cell phone gets its signals from cell towers serving your cell phone service provider, e.g. Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile.

If you are in a building or elevator, your signal can be weak. Try going to the edge / side / top of a building, like by a glass window to see if the signal is stronger.
Or if your cell phone service provider (phone company) doesn't have a cell tower close to where you are, the signal can be weak or nil.
You can find out your cell phone company's cell tower coverage areas ...by checking their website. If you are at locations where your cell phone service provider has good coverage, you will get stronger signals. Otherwise, expect to get weak signals.
Yes, it's always prudent to check which cell phone service provider has good cell (tower) coverage in areas where you are (using your cell phone) most of the time, and subscribe to that company's cell phone service.

How does a mobile network jammer work


A mobile phone jammer is an instrument used to prevent cellular phones from receiving signals from base stations. When used, the jammer effectively disables cellular phones. These devices can be used in practically any location, but are found primarily in places where a phone call would be particularly disruptive because silence is expected. A cell phone signal jammer is used to stop nearby cell phones from sending or receiving signals to and from the cell phone tower. A cell phone works by communicating with its service network through a cell tower or base station. Cell towers divide a city into small areas, or cells. As a cell-phone user drives down the street, the signal is handed from tower to tower.

Cell phone jammers block cell phone use by sending out radio waves along the same frequencies that cellular phones use. This causes enough interference with the communication between cell phones and towers to render the phones unusable. On most retail phones, the network would simply appear out of range. Most cell phones use different bands to send and receive communications from towers. Jammers can work by either disrupting phone to tower frequencies or tower to phone frequencies or both.

Cell phones are full-duplex devices, which means they use two separate frequencies, one for talking and one for listening simultaneously. Some jammers block only one of the frequencies used by cell phones, which has the effect of blocking both. The phone is tricked into thinking there is no service because it can receive only one of the frequencies. The jammer also stops Internet use through Wi-Fi network and even blocks Bluetooth connections. The cell phone signal jammer also puts an end to text messaging, so students cannot SMS each other, while the teacher is trying to teach.

Interestingly, jammers are life saving devices for military. Terrorists use cell phones to trigger explosives. Army can use a jammer to make mobile phones go dead, so that army technicians can deactivate the bomb.

No network in 1600 nokia phone how to solve it


It depends on the signal strength(ie tower location)of your service provider.Contact your service provider and if still remains the same you need to change your service provider(ur sim)with good signal strength in your area.

I don't have any way to test the signal strength. Have you tried it from different areas of town, are you even close to a tower? Try dialing *611 which should take you to your CSP and you would know if the phone even communicates with the tower.

Hai
It seems your area is having less signal strength or its far from the mobile tower of your service provider.
Its a problem for lots of people around.
Try change the service provider or move to the nearest of the tower location.
