While connecting to internet, doing email transaction, or sending SMS.

One of the most frustrating things with mobile phones or USB modem is a lack of signal. If weak signal on your mobile handset bothers you, here are some tips to find out if your internet provider has real problem or is it your modem or mobile phone.

This happens when you are in a tight spot or in countries where internet connection most of the time fail you.


You are using USB modem.

Either no connection or signal is dropping.

Solution 1. Change your location. If you still cannot connect, try using another ISP, or changing your USB modem.

Solution 2. Reset your computer. Run your anti-virus. Ensure that you do not have any form of virus. There is a virus that specializes on D.O.S. (Denial of Service) which disables your computer’s function to connect to internet.

If you got connected. Remember the time and exact location. Replicate the issue on a different date at the same geographic location.

If you have 2 different modems for 2 different ISP (Internet Service Provider) and you cannot receive good signal, then the issue can be either local to your city, or a national issue in one country, or international irrespective of where you are.


If your modem cannot connect but your friend’s device can, then possibly yours is faulty.

Solution 3. Use a generic USB modem with higher speed that can sport any local SIM to connect to internet. You just have to be familiar or knowledgeable of your local configuration or setting.

Example in Papua New Guinea, in Lae, using Digicel:

Connection Name: Digicel PNG

Phone number: *99#

Authentication: internet.digicelpng.com

For Telikom in Lae: you need to get user ID, password and number to connect to.

Username: phone number@telinet.net.pg

Password:  as provided by your ISP

Phone number :#777

Connect Point: TELIKOM PNG

Over the past more than 20 years cell phone ownership has increased massively, to the point where over 80% of the world’s population has cell phone coverage. The technology needed to provide adequate signal has not kept up with demand, which is why 69% of Americans have experienced dropped calls and poor signal. However, with advances in technology there are ways to improve cell reception.

Keep in mind, poor reception is not something that your service provider will fix just because you want them to. It must be justifiably cost effective for them to put up new towers, which will ultimately be criticized by cities, home owners associations, etc. Most users think there is nothing they can do to improve their cell phone reception by themselves. This isn’t always true, and the following will explain what you can do to ensure improved mobile coverage without waiting for a new tower to magically appear.

Use Wi-Fi as your cell phone signal. Make calls and connect to internet from your phone as normally you would. If your mobile phone supports UMA, you can use the wi-fi as your cellphone signal where you don’t get GSM signal coverage or areas with poor coverage. Not all devices and carriers support UMA calls. There are some blackberry and androids and few other phones that support.


  • Wireless Signal Booster You can also boost your cell phone signal by using a non-electrical, wireless mobile signal booster.
  • Battery Life When a phone can’t find a good signal, it searches. The phone uses a lot of power to do this, which is why having poor signal will drain your battery. Those who have forgotten to turn off their phone on an airplane understand this well. If you have a cell phone building repeater, you will notice that your battery seems to last forever, because it never has to look for a signal, it always has the best possible one available.
  • If all else fails, switch your service provider.
  • Weather: Arid, High humidity and lightning can all cause a reduction in cell signal. If the weather is dry your only option may be a Rain dance.
  • Car Amplifiers If you wish to boost your cell phone reception in your car, you will need a mobile signal booster with a 12v or cigarette lighter adapter.

Avoid any solutions that involve a $5 (or equally cheap Php 150.00) patch you stick on or in your phone. These are invariably useless and will not improve your cell reception. These are usually called Internal Cell Phone Boosters but are nothing more than a waste of money. (some evidence gained by research through non-profits suggests otherwise. But then again, why wouldn’t phone manufacturers just include them?)


Cell phone signal boosters


As any cell phone user can tell you, the technology is not perfect. Even in urban areas like San Francisco there are way too many places where coverage can be spotty. Also, while one carrier may have perfect overage in a location, another carrier my offer nothing but dropped calls.


Everyone has discovered a dead zone at some point, but they can be especially troubling in your home, workplace, or along your commute. Fortunately, a cell phone signal booster can offer a solution to your reception woes. These aren’t the cheap foil stickers you buy online (don’t even bother with those); they’re actually real products that can make a real difference. Your exact results will vary, and keep in mind that a better signal and better voice quality are two separate things, but we’ve found that these products can offer an improved signal. They run on the expensive side, but you might consider a clear phone call worth the price. These products are compatible with CDMA and GSM phones, but they don’t support other handsets.

Solution 4. Tethering refers to connecting one device to another. In the context of mobile phones or Internet tablets, tethering allows sharing the Internet connection of the phone or tablet with other devices such as laptops. Connection of the phone or tablet with other devices can be done over wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), over Bluetooth or by physical connection using a cable for example, through USB.

If tethering is done over Wi-Fi, the feature may be branded as a Mobile Hotspot. The Internet-connected mobile device can thus act as a portable wireless access point and router for devices connected to it.

Many mobile phones are equipped with software to offer tethered Internet access. Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Phone 7, Android (starting from version 2.2), and iOS 3.0 (or later) offer tethering over a Bluetooth PAN or a USB connection. Tethering over Wi-Fi, also known as Personal Hotspot, is available on iOS starting with iOS 4.2.5 (or later) on iPhone 4, 4S, 5, iPad (3rd generation), certain Windows Mobile 6.5 devices like the HTC HD2, Windows Phone 7 devices (varies by manufacturer and model), and certain Android phones (varies widely depending on carrier, manufacturer, and software version).

On some networks, this feature is only contractually available by paying to add a tethering package to a data plan or choosing a data plan that includes tethering. This is done primarily because with a computer sharing the network connection, there may well be a substantial increase in the customer’s mobile data use, for which the network may not have budgeted in their network design and pricing structures.

In other countries, there is no need to bother with tethering’s additional plan of service fee.

Some network-provided handsets have carrier-specific software that may deny the inbuilt tethering ability normally available on the handset, or only enable it if the subscriber pays an additional fee. Some operators have asked Google or any mobile producer using Android to completely remove tethering support from the operating system on certain handsets. Handsets purchased SIM-free, without a network provider subsidy are often unhindered with regards to tethering.

There are, however, several ways to enable tethering on affected devices without paying for it, including rooting Android devices or jailbreaking iOS devices and installing a tethering application on the device. Tethering is also available as a downloadable third-party application on most Symbian mobile phones as well as on the MeeGo platformand on WebOS mobiles phones.

Depending on the wireless carrier, the user’s phone might have restricted functionality. While tethering may be allowed at no extra cost, some carriers impose a one-time charge to enable tethering and others forbid tethering or impose added data charges. Contracts that advertise “unlimited” data usage often have limits detailed in a Fair usage policy.


On a SAMSUNG smart phone, go to SETTINGS, then Wireless and network, Mobile network settings and tick mark USE PACKET DATA. Then proceed to Tethering and portable hotspot. If you have USB cable connected to your computer and mobile phone, then put a check mark on USB Tethering. Or, select Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot. The rest is self-explanatory.


If you are successful in activating via TETHERING, then you will see Internet Access gets online from your TASKBAR.


Clicking the ICON pops up the connection status of all your internet wireless network connections.



This is an example of what appears for HOTSPOT connection.



Select the Security option for WPA-2, select encryption type and input your Network Security key so only you can access, while others nearby will be required to enter password.
