Verizon has fairly good cell phone coverage but even then there're times where you will find yourself with weak cell phone coverage or none at all. Let us show you seven tips on how to get better cell phone coverage with Verizon or at the very least, make the most of the signal that you have got. Let us start off with a few tips that will help you out with your cell phone signal.
It can be as simple as rolling down the window in the car or being in the right spot at home. Materials, buildings and vehicles are made out of metal, concrete and even window tint can reduce the amount of cell signal passing through. This can sometimes even block signal completely. Rolling down or opening a window removes one more obstruction blocking the signal from reaching your smartphone.
You can also try turning off LTE for better calls. LTE signal and 3G signal for calls and texts are on different frequencies. You may find that at a given location, you're getting good 3G signal but your LTE isn't so great. If calling over LTE is turned on, your phone will try and use LTE instead of 3G signal and you will be stuck. Turning off LTE will allow you to use your 3G service instead, and make the call. It is easy to check the signal levels of LTE and 3G to see which one is stronger at your location.
If you're at home, make a signal map of your house. Walk around your home and write down the signal level in each room. This way, you will know which areas of the house get a decent cell signal and you can go to that spot to make a call. You can do this with the bars on your phone but they are not very reliable. Instead, put your phone into test mode. This will show you a much more precise numerical reading of your signal. This is available on Android or iOS devices and it is easy to do.
Another tip when checking the signal level at your home is to be patient. Your phone will usually take a while to update the signal level, sometimes up to a minute. So make sure that you stay at each location for long enough to make sure that the signal has updated. Once you know which side of the house gets better service, you can leave the phone on that side of the house so you won't miss a call. If you're setting up a cell phone signal booster, this is also very useful information to know so you can direct your exterior antenna towards the mobile service tower.
If you want to fix the problem and improve the cell signal that you're getting instead of just doing work arounds, then you have got a number of options. Why not try Wi-Fi calling? In a nutshell, Wi-Fi calling offloads your calls to the internet through your wireless router instead of using a cell tower. If you live in an area with a weak cell signal or the building you live in is blocking the cell signal from getting inside, then Wi-Fi calling is a great choice. Wi-Fi calling is easy to set up and it works with most cell phones.
Another great option for your home is a femtocell. This device is known by a different name depending upon the mobile service carrier you get it from: AT&T Microcell, Sprint AirAve, T-Mobile Personal Cellspot, or Verizon Network Extender. All these devices work in the same manner. They create a small area of cell signal within your home using Internet. You plug such a device into your router and it will create an area of cellular signal about 40 feet from the base station. Up to 6 people can use their devices at the same time while in this coverage area. There are no monthly fees for using a device such as a network extender. It will just use your allotted minutes like any normal call. One thing to note is these devices only work with the cell phones on respective carrier's network. For example, a Verizon network extender only works for Verizon customers. Any other carrier within its broadcast range won't be able to connect or use the network extender. Therefore, if you live in an area with no cell service or you just can't get cell service within your building but you have got internet access, then a network extender just might be the perfect fit.
Another great option for staying connected with any carrier is a cell phone signal booster. These come in models for buildings or vehicles so you can stay connected while at home or on the road. A signal booster works with any phone and any carrier and you can have as many users as you like using it simultaneously without a problem. A signal booster works by taking weak cell signal, boosting it, and then sending the strong signal to your phone and back to the cell tower. There're a number of booster models available to fit any home or vehicle so you're sure to be covered no matter your situation and you won't need an internet connection to make it work.
