In the fast-paced digital age that we are all a part of, it’s crucial to always be connected; to be connected to your clients across states, to your sales and consultant team in the field. Businesses crash and burn when things don’t happen in the nick of time because often than not, it’s a little thing like a slow cell signal that gives your rivals an edge over you! But even if you’re not a business owner, and are just a student who is running against the deadline to submit your project, you want all the information in the world at the tip of your fingers!
Now before you begin getting frantic, sit down and read what you can do to help your phone stay connected…
Be Sure To Charge Your Phone
Your phone doesn’t run on infinite energy! The one fundamental function of a cell phone is to connect you to the grid, and to do that the phone requires energy. If you’re a busy working individual who doesn’t have time to charge your phone at an outlet, buy a power bank. As your phone’s battery drains below 20%, your phone’s performance will drop drastically.
You can also close unnecessary background apps that drain power. Reduce your screen brightness. Switch off your Bluetooth or hotspot if it is activated. Switch your phone to power saver mode. The end result will be a phone that lasts longer and works harder to keep you on the grid!
Change Your Service Provider
The cell towers of your service provider in your area may have high network traffic. This congestion can cause frequent call drops and slow data service! You may want to switch over to another network provider if you’re able to do so.
The space around you might be overly cluttered; this causes interference to the incoming signal. You can simply move the clutter, or you can get some air and go outdoors to get better signal.
But, what to do if none of this helps?
Buy A Cell Signal Booster
If all else fails, buy yourself a cell phone signal booster. It could be either for your office or for your personal purposes, like a portable booster for your vehicle or home. Cell signal boosters are quite inexpensive but the cost could go higher depending on how many people you want to be connected at the same time.
