Samsung Galaxy S II :: Signal Strength And Network Mode?

Feb 12, 2012

I get a poor signal indoors at home - on Orange and it's always been the case. I spoke to their customer services and was told to switch the phone from auto select for Network Mode to GSM only. My choices are GSM only, WCDMA only or Auto.

True, having done so, the signal strength seems better though not amazing but, ordinarily, I get then just a "G" for data. I found that switching to WCDMA only, data goes to 3G or even H and sometime H+ but I nearly always lose the standard signal.

I dont understand the difference between GSM and WCDMA nor whether the results I see when choosing each are to be expected or not. I'd welcome any information from those of you who know more about these things than I do.

Lumia Icon :: Network Signal Strength

Feb 22, 2014

So I made the leap from my iPhone 5S to the Icon on Friday and I'm enjoying it thus far. One thing I've noticed; however, is that the Verizon Network signal strength isn't nearly as good and I'm not sure if there's a way to reset it or others can confirm. For example at my house, where I always had 3-4 bars of LTE with my iPhone 5s and the 5 before it - I now can only get 2 with the Icon.

Galaxy S6 :: Network Mode LTE Reduce Signal

Feb 3, 2016

I'm having some really annoying issue with my phone, when I select the Network Mode to GSM/WCDMA (auto connect) it is working perfectly fine but as soon as I change to LTE/GSM/WCDMA (auto connect) I lost 75% of my signal.

Of course without activating LTE I cannot access the 4G Network which is a bit annoying.

I also tried to flash the latest modem for my phone g920i but it didn't solve the problem.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Cannot Find GPS Signal - Just Remains In Searching Mode

Jul 18, 2012

I wanted to use a new sports app today but it wouldn't work correctly because the phone won't find a GPS signal. The usual icon isn't appearing and phone just remains in searching mode. I'm sure I opted to not notify people of my location through latitude but I've used the Google sat-nav since. When I go to locations services GPS satellites is unticked, I tick it and exit but everytime I go back it is unticked?

Galaxy S5 :: Network Mode Always GSM Only On Samsung Phone

Jan 4, 2015

The network mode on my Samsung galaxy S5 device is always set at GSM only. When I try to change it to WCDMA only or GSM/WCDMA (auto mode) it changes back to GSM only. The area I am has 3G network and most devices I see have H but mine always shows as E no matter what I do. When browsing it takes a long time for pages to open because its always at E.

I have factory reset the device but still facing the same problem.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Data Network Mode Not Working?

Oct 3, 2011

Am I right in thinking that the Data Network Mode access your data plan usage? Ie 500mb?When I activate this, it doesn't seem to allow me to connect to the net?Also is there a widget that allows me toggle this off and on?Doesn't it seem weird that Samsung hasn't give us a indicator like the wifi that this data network mode is ON? I could leave it on running without even knowing? Is there a good app which lets me see how much data I am using?

Motorola Photon 4G :: Signal Bars Vs Signal Strength?

Jan 31, 2012

I was wondering if anyone knows what algorithm is used for the signal bars on the Photon 4G. I have found that there seems to be no correlation between the signal strength (in dBm / asu) in Settings -> About phone -> Status and the signal bars that are shown. Often the signal bars will shoot from 1 to 5 or 6 even with really low signal ( ~97 to > 100 dBm) that doesn't fluctuate.

Why Is X10 So Poor At Signal Strength

May 17, 2011

I have a problem with my signal when I enter my college building, the reception will fall so low that it will show "no service" and if I try to manually connect to my service provider, it says they are unavailable. my sim works fine, I've recently received a new sim, and my phone is updated to 2.1, awaiting the 2.3 update.
I've upgraded from a Samsung Jet and even that had perfect signal in lessons, never went below 2 bars, so why is the X10 so poor at signal strength? is there anything I can do to stop this? is the phone at fault here?

IPhone :: Try Turning Off 3G / Signal Strength Improved

Jul 22, 2010

If anyone is still having problems with the signal strength, try turning off 3G and Location via Settings section. I constantly had only 1-2 bars, but once turning them off my signal has improved massively; now getting 5 bars 90% of the time. I reckon it is more 3G affecting the signal, but try with both off just to be sure. If it works, then turn on 3G only when needed.

IPhone :: Using New 4s On Straight Talk Low Signal Strength?

Apr 29, 2012

I am using a new I phone 4s on Straight Talk and I have only 1 to 2 bars maximum anywhere I go and then it will have no service at all.I was a previous verizon customer and had 4 to 5 sitting in my home now I have 1 or 2 and if I walk around sometimes goes to no service at all. Verizon did not have service everywhere I went but that was in hilly areas as I live in central Illinois and have talked to others with AT&T and they are getting better service than this as that is what towers Straight Talk uses. I am getting a Gel bumper cover and have already tried the black tape it did not help. It says I have 4 G sitting in house but cannot make a call and the 4G goes in and out also.

Sony Ericsson :: Horrible Signal Strength After Debranding

Aug 12, 2010

My Mum bought a Sony Ericsson C510 which has an unsightly "Tesco Mobile" logo on the right softkey. On the first night, I took to 'debranding' by dumping a custom_upgrade.xml in the phone's ROM using A2 uploader and then running Sony Ericsson updater so it fetched a normal firmware ROM (Western Europe C6A, 1209-4774). Afterwards the signal strength was abysmal so I tried a UK custom CDA then finally just went back to the TESCO CDA... (there's however no way of me knowing if it's the exact same CDA though, it was listed on A2 CDA generator). It was showing full-strength for a while - overnight it's back to abysmal strength. There's a chance it was like this before - though I recall seeing it on full bars when she'd just got it out the packaging. Now I'm really unsettled that I've screwed her new phone. Doesn't help that I was like "Dad, I updated the software on Mum's phone and now..." he was displeased as he remembers my motorola modding days. Ofcourse I didn't dare mention that I fiddled with the way it updated. Is it possible I'm just noticing this now? The CDA just changes the region/branding of the firmware SUSE fetches, right. Is there any way to ensure I have the original CDA of the phone?[ This Message was edited by: schmoogrz on 2010-08-12 12:08 ]

Motorola Droid 3 :: Signal Strength Indicator Hard To See

Jul 26, 2011

By changing the Singal strength indicator from stock android: When connected to Google services: Bright green for signal, grey for not to When connected to Google services:

Somewhat brighter blue for signal, Somehwat darker blue for no signal

it is impossible to tell if I have a zero bar signal or full bar signal (all in between are kind of visible)....

Ironically the indicator for not connected to Google services is very easy to read - but in most cases only lasts a few seconds...

Suggestion for the next patch: Turn up the level of blue for signal and go to grey for no signal to make the indicator visible.

Motorola Droid 2 :: Battery And Signal Strength In GSM Land?

Apr 30, 2011

I've seen this before but just got back from a trip to the UK and I noticed battery life was really bad compared to back in the US. Not sure if this is GSM vs CDMA or just I was in a weaker signal area so that the phone was "trying" harder. It's harder to tell because of another issue, the signal indicator!

This time, I made several perfectly fine calls with the indicator showing no bars, only when the phone showed "No Service" did things not work. I probably should have downloaded an app to show the signal strenght, but didn't....

Motorola Droid Razr :: Low Signal Strength/battery After ICS

Aug 2, 2012

I own a Droid Razr MAXX that I purchased in the June timeframe, so it is still essentially new. My phone was updated to ICS when Verizon pushed the update out to everyone a few weeks back. Initially, I was excited to be getting the update to help improve phone performance and functionality. Unfortunately, this has not been my experience.

Over the past few weeks, I have noticed that my phone signal strength has diminished. Since I work a desk job, I sit in pretty much the same exact location each day and it is easy to notice signal strength. Before ICS, I usually had a 4G connection with 3-4 bars. Now, my phone fluctuates between struggling to connect to 4G and eventually connecting to 3G with 1-2, maybe 3 bars. In fact, the signal icon frequently changes from blue bars to white (I'm not sure what it means, but it probably isn't good). The phone seems to run slower and my apps frequently crash a few times per day. In addition, my phone seems to be using more battery now too. Before ICS, I could work a full day and still have 70% battery remaining. Now, I'm lucky to have 40-50%.

I haven't added any new apps, but have a few more .MP3 songs saved to my SD card. In addition, I don't believe there are local issues with a cell tower going down, etc.
