Default Bold 9800 bad antenna/signal

Please Login to Remove!

My phone seems to have a very bad reception. Dont know if it is a general problem or just this phone. When inside my office I often loose the signal, so I have to go outside if I want to talk on the phone.

Anyway of boosting the antenna or otherwise overcome this?

Any kind of software that can help?

Cell carriers do not guarantee that you can use your device inside of a building. Do others in the same building have the same problem?

My guess is there is nothing wrong with the device, but the walls and electronics inside provide the interference.

My 9800 doesn't like certain areas of my house.

Depending on how important this is to you check with the carrier and see if a micro cell or service signal booster is available. Not sure about your carrier but ATT offeres them so maybe yours does.
