HOW TO SOLVE SMARTPHONE NETWORK PROBLEMS
1. Enable And Disable Airplane Mode
Firstly, enable and disable airplane mode whenever your network hangs, freezes, run slow, dissappears or not coming up. Indeed, there is no day i don’t turn on and off airplane mode on my mobile phone mostly when i notice my mobile phone becoming slow in speed or having weak signal so I suggest you also try it whenever you experience any network issues.
2. Change Network Mode
Secondly, if he above method did not work for you, then see if this method is for you. The truth remains that 3G and 4G services are still not available in some areas and might not be strong in some areas where it is available, you should check and see if your network is set on 3G or 4G might not be strong enough so if your phone network mode is set to any of them, you should change it to 2G to avoid signal loss in your smartphone. Setting it to 2G or Edge is the best.
Here is how to set your mobile network to 2G;
- proceed to Settings and open Wireless and Network settings
- Then tap on Mobile Networks.
- Tap Network Mode.
- Select GSM only (2G Only) or WCDMA/GSM (3G/2G Auto) by removing WCDMA only (3G Only) mode.
However, you can also select “auto mode” WCDMA/GSM, the phone will automatically choose the best available signals.

Moreover, removing the smartphone cover can also help boost the signal strength. If you’re facing the poor signals in your phone, you should firstly remove the phone cover. The signal strength should improve.
8. Open Your Windows & Locate Nearest Towers
This method should be applied only where there is strong network but in areas with very poor signal, always try opening windows and doors or better still, come out in an open environment anytime they want to make calls or use the internet.
Just like we know that the closer you’re to the mobile network tower, the more signal will will receive. However, mobile phones don’t always connect to the nearest tower.
So, if you can locate the nearest mobile tower and the one your mobile phone is connected to, take your phone to the direction of the tower you’re connected to.
