Some things in life do come free! And fixing your cell phone signal is just one of them. It is not always necessary to spend a bucket load to get better call and data quality. Sometimes little tweaks here and there will yield good results. Now, it goes without saying that spending money on good and trusted devices will yield you lasting results. This applies in the case of getting a call booster or a cell phone signal booster. Most of your reception problems will be taken care of by these devices. 

However, if you are short of money or are waiting to purchase a call booster, then in the meantime, you can try out these little tips and tricks to get the best out of your cell signal. Read on…

Check For Damage

If your car starts to rattle and clunker, the first thing you would do is stop and inspect thoroughly. The same applies to cellular devices. Inspect your phone well, to see if there is any visible damage from the time it slipped from your hand or fell off the table. If you see something significant, then it would be wise to head to a service center to get it fixed. If your phone is still under warranty period, then you can even replace it entirely without spending anything. 

Update Your Software

A simple scroll to the settings should be enough to see if your software is up-to-date. If not, hit the update button. New patches, tweaks and bug fixes, help in optimizing the phone’s calling and data functionalities. If you are behind by a few updates, your phone will be badly optimized and could be the reason for the below-par reception and call quality. 

Switch To Wi-Fi Calling 

If you have a reliable and secure internet connection nearby, which you can connect to, then it would be better to do so. Although this is technically not “fixing” your reception problems, you will be able to make great quality voice calls and have quick data speeds. If you have a good Wi-Fi connection at home, then having a cellular signal can be a second priority.  

Switch To 3G

Switch off the LTE and VoLTE options, if the cell signal strength is low. In that case, switch to a lower network connection like 3G, which may be less congested and offer a much stronger cell signal. 

If none of these do the trick, then it is just the world’s way of saying “get a call booster, now!
