These days, almost all adults use mobile phones for communication, internet browsing, performing monetary transactions, watching videos online, play games, etc. Due to the rapidly increasing number of mobile phone users, mobile operators are constantly expanding their networks. Still, there are many places where individuals face problems in mobile signals. Their conversation is interrupted and the connection does not work well. So, what causes this problem and how to deal with it? Let’s find out.
Common Causes of Weak Signals on Your Mobile
|Causes of Weak Signals on Your Mobile Device||Brief Explanation|
|Distance from the Mobile Tower||Mobile signals are emitted from mobile towers. They have a certain coverage area. If you are far away from it, naturally, you will face the problem of the mobile signal.|
|Too Many Users are using the Same Mobile Network||Overloading mobile communication is a common problem in large cities wherein a large number of users are connected with one service provider. During peak hours, mobile towers are overloaded with lots of traffic. So, you face problems in mobile communications.|
|Your Fault||The quality of data transmission carried out on a particular mobile network may deteriorate due to the user’s fault, which is out of control in most cases.
A very common mistake of mobile phone users is that they use mobile devices in the basement, underground passage, elevator with metal walls.
Also, many residential buildings are built of reinforced concrete. This material shields electromagnetic radiation to a somewhat lesser extent, which causes mobile signal problems.
|Geographical barriers||Mountains, sea, desert, etc.|
|Problem in Mobile connection Setting||If there is a problem in mobile connection settings (such as using SIM2 for 4G connection, Airplane mode, etc,) also cause the mobile signal problem.|
|Signal Problem due to Damaged Mobile Handset||Mobile phones often catch signals poorly after it accidentally falls on floor or into the water. Here, average users don’t have any choice but to go for go to the service centre for troubleshooting.
You must always keep in mind that Modern phones are quite complex devices. So, the majority of people cannot identify the source of the problem on their own. Only mobile phone experts can detect the damage and make the necessary improvements easily.
How to Deal with Mobile Signal Problems?
- Choose A Good Telecom Company at First
We all know that several business organisations make entry to the telecom world without making any proper groundwork. They buy the licence, spectrum and start providing cheap telecom services in a bid to attract a large number of customers as soon as possible.
They always focus on increasing the customer base and making more revenues with each passing day. They never take care of the infrastructure required to provide high-quality telecom services to customers.
So, you must always choose a Telecom company with better infrastructure (such as towers in important cities and towns, communication standards, fast and friendly customer care service, etc). You will hardly come across the mobile signal problem.
- Careful Selection of Communication Standards
Modern mobile phones capable of working with several communication standards at one time, such as LTE, WCDMA, GSM. Each mobile device has a default communication standard. Based on your needs, you can choose any communication standards and get rid of the mobile signal Problem.
|Mobile Communication Standards||Full Form||Brief Explanation|
|GSM||Global System for Mobile||GSM is the global digital standard for mobile cellular communications. It was developed in the late 1980s under the auspices of the European Telecommunication Standardization Institute (ETSI). You can use GSM for better communication and 2G Mobile internet. Approx. 29% of the world’s population uses global GSM technologies.|
|GPRS||General Packet Radio Service||GPRS is a packet-based data transmission system, in which the entire data flow of the sender is divided into separate packets and then delivered to the recipient, where the packets are assembled together, and it is not necessary that all packets go along the same route. It works very well on GSM mobile communication technology and allows you to transfer data from one device to another quickly than a conventional GSM network. It is very useful for all those people who make mobile calls using the Internet.|
|EDGE||Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution||The EDGE technology is an intermediate stage between GPRS technology and 3G generation communication standards. It allows you to access the network at faster speeds. You can transmit large amounts of information at the same time and with the same number of used time slots on the radio as via GPRS.|
|UMTS||Universal Mobile Telecommunications System||UMTS is a third-generation cellular technology. It allows you to maintain a data transfer rate at a theoretical level of at least 14 Mbit per second.|
|CDMA||Code Division Multiple Access||It refers to the use of multiple channels with code division. So, during a telephone conversation, personal data and the voice itself are transmitted through separate channels and at different frequencies. You also get more data than the GSM standard.|
|LTE||Long-Term Evolution||LTE is a new wireless technology is the development of cellular communication, which makes the transition from CDMA (WCDMA) systems to new OFDMA systems. It also offers a transition from a circuit switching system to an e2e IP system. It is aimed at reducing the cost of mobile communication services, increasing the speed of data transmission in wireless networks, and enhancing the availability of mobile communications for subscribers. Using this technology facilitates the speed of information transfer and gives you the ability to create high-speed mobile communication systems easily and effortlessly.|
You can choose any communication standard as per your needs and choice.
- Install an Antenna
There are many companies and business organizations that operate underground rooms or building attached with thick glasses. They constantly face the problem of mobile signal. By installing a good quality antenna (for catching mobile signals) in your office, you can easily get rid of this problem up to a great extent.

Only, then you will have a strong signal on the mobile device.
Almost all mobile phone users often complain about problems in mobile signals. This is caused by several factors outlined here above. Just track the error and eliminate it as soon as possible. It will allow your mobile handset to catch signals easily from the service proper and facilitate uninterrupted communication.
