Cell Phone Antenna Problems
Although most new phones have the antenna built into the protective casing, they are still breakable. Frequent drops or jostling could be the culprit for a faulty cell phone antenna. This can cause several problems, including static, poor reception, dropped calls, slow downloads, and low wireless signals. However, you do want to make sure that it isn’t a simpler issue. There are some things that you can do to troubleshoot the problem before seeking a cell phone antenna repair.
Troubleshooting Cell Phone Antenna Problems
Make sure your problem isn’t localized to the area from which you are attempting to call. You could be far away from a cell tower, or you could be in a building with certain materials that tend to block cell phone signals. Before assuming that you have a faulty antenna, try your phone signal in multiple locations. If your problem is localized, you can often solve it with a cell phone booster kit to amplify your signal and get past the interference.
You should also make sure that your phone is fully charged. Sometimes a low battery can cause similar reception problems. If the location and the battery are not the problems, you can also backup your data and then reset the phone.
