Android: How to boost your 3G/4G signal

No worries! You don’t have to climb a tree, go up to the roof of your house, or climb a mountain to get better 3G and 4G signal. :)

Because you have an Android powered mobile phone, there are a few things you can do to boost your cell phone signal in case you find yourself in a place with poor reception.

So before risking your life please check these tips below.

Update PRL

  • Press the “Menu” button, tap “Settings.” > “About Phone.” Press “System Updates” and then tap “Update PRL“.

This will update the library of wireless towers that your Android phone can use. If new towers have come online, this will help to boost your 3G signal.

Airplane Mode

  • Press the “Home” button. Press and hold the “Power” button until the pop-up menu appears. Touch “Airplane Mode.” Wait for the airplane icon to appear in the bar at the top of the screen. Repeat the process to turn off airplane mode. Wait for the signal indicator to reappear in the status bar.

This process turns the radio off and then back on, which can cause the Android phone to acquire a better 3G signal.


If nothing of the mentioned above has worked so far, you can lay your phone next to a window to avoid interference from the building, or try lay your phone on a metal surface: it will act as a ground plane and reflect radio signals back to the phone. That will help as well.

In case of an emergency remember that Revvl ONE works on any network (Edge, 2G, 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi) in case you need to reach any of your friends via instant messaging and can’t find a stable network.
