Why do I have a weak signal on my phone?
If your phone’s signal strength is weak, there could be several factors affecting it:
- You are outside the network’s coverage area
- You are roaming
- Your current location has weaker than normal signal strength
- Factors such as weather, terrain, foliage, traffic volume, or service outages
Here are some potential solutions for poor signal strength:
Use Wi-Fi Networks
Connecting to Wi-Fi networks can usually provide a solid boost to your phone’s signal strength.
Turn “Airplane mode” on and off
Airplane mode will disconnect your phone from the network. By toggling it off and on again, your phone will attempt to reconnect to the closest cell tower. Because closer towers provide better service, causing a forced ‘reconnect’ can, in some cases, provide you with a stronger signal.
You might be out of the network’s coverage range OR your signal could be blocked. Additionally, highly populated areas can weaken your signal because of network strain on the nearest cell tower. Change your physical location until your handset receives a stronger signal.
Reset your Network Settings
Resetting your network settings can refresh your connection and yield a stronger signal. Check out our guide on how to perform a network reset.
