8. Move Around (or Don’t)!
Confused? You might need to change location, or stop moving at all, depending on the situation, to boost your cell phone signal. When you’re moving around or driving, your cell signal is being received from one cell tower until you’re handed off to another as your proximity to and from them changes. Your phone and network will be making constant adjustments to adapt to changing cell signal and GPS location.
On the other hand, if you’re having bad cell signal in a certain section of a building or home, moving closer to a window, especially an open one, could significantly improve your cell phone signal. When possible, moving outside is another way to get a better signal.
Moving to a higher position in a building or on terrain, such as a hill, could eliminate obstructions like other buildings and trees.
If you’re at a site that is covered or surrounded by structures/natural elements made of cement or wood, like a parking lot or campsite, the structures could block your cell signal. Try moving to a more open area.
