How to boost the signal strength of your iPhone/Android smartphone


Many of us face the problem of bad signal strength or no signal in our smartphones. This leads to issues like call drops, slow internet speed, poor voice quality, stuck text and email messages and more.
So, here are 5 tips and tricks you can use to boost the signal strength.


1. Remove any type of cover, case or hand blocking the antenna of the smartphone:
Using a cover/case on your smartphone gives added protection but at the same time, it may affect the signal reception strength. This is especially in case of thick and rugged cases. Make sure you hold a phone in such a way that it does not block the antenna bands of the device.


2. Remove obstructions between your smartphone and the cell tower:You must be wondering, how can you remove the obstruction between the cellphone and cell towers. Your cellphones receive the signal from cell tower constantly and the signal coming from the tower already goes through several obstructions and they can get weakened by the time it reaches your smartphones.

Here are a few things you can do to remove the interference
• Move near to a window or an open area.
• Move away from any object or wall made of metal or concrete.
• Keep your smartphone away from the electronic equipment and metal objects.

3. Conserve your cell phone battery:Smartphones are designed to save battery when it is low and while finding a signal our cell phones consume battery. So, when the smartphone's battery is low, chances are it may find it difficult to search the signal.

So, in such cases, we should turn off apps, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and other connectivity options not in use.

4. Check your SIM card for any damage or dust:Sometimes we feel that the signal strength of the phone has dropped all of sudden. This can also be due to dust or any other kind of damage caused to the SIM card. The signal strength highly depends on the SIM card we are using. Dust is something that enters into our smartphone no matter what sort of precautions we take. So, it's advisable to take out your SIM card clean it and put it back. This can help improve the signal strength.


5. Switch back to 2G or 3G network:In some areas, we see that the signal strength of the 4G network weak. Our cell phones are designed to make the network mode switch automatically when the signal reception of a particular mode is weak, however, then devices keep on pushing the priority network mode and this may result in frequent call drops.
