How many times have you been in the worst situation possible, and your cell phone doesn’t have a single bar of reception. It seems like we lose signal entirely at the worst times possible. Though we here at RepairLabs can’t magically help you get bars when there are none to be had – we can help you understand why you have none, and what you can do to help improve signal.
With our super awesome interactive infographic detailing how cell phones work, and why we lose reception, you will have the tools necessary to conquer the world of mobile communication, at least as well as we possibly can.
Before we could explain why the cell phone loses signal, we first had to figure out what exactly makes your cell phone work in the first place. We all know the general gist of it -- your cell phone sends a signal to a tower and then to whoever you're calling, but there is a lot more that goes into it, and we were able to gather all this data so you don't have to!
You may hear lots of big terms and fancy words thrown around when talking to know-it-all’s about why your phone drops your call. Luckily we understand your frustration and are here to break it down into digestible bits for you.
Upon further testing and research, we've found out several extremely interesting facts about why your phone loses signal, including what materials cause the signal to be dampened, and which cause a cutoff completely.
Having figured out what is causing the signal to be lost, we were able to compile a few simple tips that can help you retrieve some of that lost reception when you need it most, and no, sitting there yelling at the top of your lungs will not help your phone get signal back.
