You finally get that phone call returned that you have been waiting on all day and are well into your conversation and then it happens! Your cell phone fails and the call gets dropped. You’ve lost your signal. We all experience this, on average of once a week at the very least. Check out these helpful tips to reduce these occurrences of dropped calls, delayed text messages, and ceasing your social media connections.

Increase your Elevation or Move to a Window. If you need to improve your signal strength it helps to get to a higher elevation. You, also, need an unobstructed location. This tip you may not have consciously thought of before, yet it comes as no surprise. It's easy for our phones to communicate with cell phone towers when there is a clear, unobstructed line between them. However, building and clutter can get in the way. The most fundamental way to get the best cell signal possible indoors is to sit near a window. The cell phones today are digital and that makes them more sensitive to a clear signal. Try downloading a signal map tool for your smartphone. These typically work by pointing the user in the direction of their nearest cell tower and can be extremely successful in locating better coverage.

Keep your Phone Charged at Full Capacity.  To get the maximum, best-quality cell phone signal, it is important to keep your phone as close to fully charged as possible. Many people don’t realize that the amount of battery power can relate to the strength of your reception signal. By doing so you will be helping to boost your signal.

Invest in a Cell Phone Booster. Boosters are an inexpensive way to safeguard that your cell phone reception remains continuous. It allows the user to control the outcome of your reception. Boosters can range from $300 to $700 dollars on average and do not have a monthly fee, but once you’ve invested in the cost of the equipment you are looking at a long-term solution to this issue.

Wi-Fi Calling.  This is a fairly new feature and all the major cell phone carriers are now offering feature. It will depend on the equipment you have, but any of the newer models of cell phones will work. Wi-Fi calling allows you to connect to the Internet and make calls by using your broadband internet connection. You can use these anywhere you have access to the internet, at home, the office, or a Wi-Fi hotspot to name a few. The only downside is that sometimes the connectivity is slow and echoes, but it works for an alternative if one is needed.
