The reception bars at the top corner of an iPhone generally tell you how good the signal is to make and receive calls. This only shows five levels so it's not the most accurate reflection of signal strength. Here's a simple trick to let you find out the exact level of reception you're getting on your iPhone.
Hi Lifehacker, I recently moved jobs to a Sydney skyscraper where the reception from an Optus-based carrier is less than stellar -- I have no data connection most of the time, and phone calls often don't come through. Colleagues on Telstra don't have these issues. Is there some way I can get out of my post-paid contract without paying exorbitant fees and move to Telstra?
Dear Lifehacker, I live 6 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD, and my neighbours and I have very poor coverage. I've been through the whole Telstra blackspot report, and Telstra has come back and suggested that I get one of its smart antennas, which improve mobile reception within the home.
I've been testing Optus' femtocell technology since the official launch last week, and the results have been odd and a little disappointing. The femtocell does succeed in giving me more bars on my phone, but despite that apparently improved reception, the quality of voice calls actually degrades fairly dramatically when I use it.
