Cell phones companies are constantly claiming to have the best service in town; but more often than not your service will be patchy. Check out this tutorial for information on how to boost your phone's signal and get the best reception.
You Will Need
* A fully charged cell phone
* Access to a window
* And open space
* A phone charger
* A mobile headset
Step 1: Fully charge your battery
Always keep the battery at least half charged. Although a phone may have enough power to attempt a call, it may not have enough to maintain a signal.
Make calls while the phone is charging if you need to.
Step 2: Find a window
Find a window. Being deep inside a building can kill a cell phone signal. Move towards a window, or an outer wall, to find a usable signal.
Set the phone by a window and use a mobile headset so you can move around the room while keeping the signal.
Step 3: Get away from electronics
Move away from other electronics to reduce interference that could cause your phone to drop calls.
Step 4: Go outside
Go outside, to a street intersection or a park, where tall buildings and other obstructions are less likely to block the signal.
Step 5: Hold it at the correct angle
Hold the cell phone at the proper angle. The antenna is designed to work best when the phone's user is upright and holding the phone in the usual manner.
Funny fact: One poll found that 33 percent of wireless subscribers feel lost without their wireless phone.
