Poor cellphone reception can be incredibly frustrating, especially in today’s world, where we all rely so heavily on our phones for virtually everything, including communication, work and entertainment. If you’re experiencing low signal strength, you’re not alone. There are several solutions available to help you increase your cellphone signal. 

Reasons to boost your cellphone signal 

Let’s talk safety first. A strong cellphone signal can be crucial in safety-related scenarios. For example, if you have an emergency in your home, a strong signal can help you immediately call for help. 

A boost in signal strength can also improve call quality, reducing dropped calls, static and other disruptions. This can be particularly important if you use your cellphone for business or other important calls.

A strong cellphone signal can also improve your overall experience using your cellphone. You’ll enjoy faster browsing speeds, smoother streaming and fewer interruptions, making it easier to stay connected. 

Tips to improve your signal  

Move to a different location: Location is everything, and sometimes simply moving to a different area can improve your cellphone reception. Try going outside or moving to a higher floor if you are indoors or move closer to your router. 

Disable your Wi-Fi: If you are in an area with weak cellphone reception, turning off your Wi-Fi can help your phone prioritize your cellular data instead. 

Keep your phone charged: A low battery level on your phone can affect a lot of things, including its ability to maintain a strong cellular signal. Keep your phone as fully charged as possible to improve your reception. 

Try a different carrier: If you consistently have poor reception, it might be worth considering switching to a different carrier that can provide better service for you. 

Use Wi-Fi calling: If you have a strong Wi-Fi signal yet weak cellular reception, you can use Wi-Fi calling to make phone calls. 

Reset your network settings: Resetting your network settings can sometimes improve your cellphone reception.

Kurt’s key takeaways 

We are all tethered to our cellphones and rely on them for everything, so poor reception can be super frustrating.
