So You have a Cell Phone?
Many People Now a days are cutting the cords to their land lines and going strickly wireless phones. I’ve seen people who have Verizon, Cingular, AT&T, Sprint or some other MVNO Like Straight Talk or Virgin Mobile! Each One of those carriers has good or bad in them. I’ve seen some that get GREAT signal and I’ve seen some that just get no signal. I even bet you researched it and thought that you were in the right area for your service provider. I hate to say it but not all phones and not all cell towers are the same either. I have tried so many different MVNO’s lately I can tell you that most of them give higher priority to their contract customers.
Why am I not getting any Bars on my Cell Phone?
I answered this a few months ago to a point about Straight Talk but it wasn’t really complete. I am sure You have your own reason why but I will break it down to you in a way that you might be able to understand it a little more clearly than before.
Each phone has an antenna and each cell tower is broadcasting to a certain distance, and some are broadcasting in a certain direction also. Most however are just broadcasting omni directional and thus you get a random signal in random locations. Your also competing with other cell signals from other cell phones for the right to use that tower so your also getting some interference in areas.
House can be an Interference too!
Even your house which is a dwelling with bricks and wood and some metal pieces can cause you to drop signals in all parts of your house. I’ve seen in my own situation that I can have 3 bars in one location of my house and no bars in another part of my house so It can be inconcievable that you have the same situation going on where you life also. So I am here to help you out a little an maybe make you life just a little bit more enjoyable.
