Signal strength bars on mobile

Does any one know what to do in getting all signal bars to light up on a S20+ android phone. Network settings checked, telstra asked, modem checked, SD card replaced all to no avail. 

Painfull the way it is.

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: Signal strength bars on mobile

Are you getting any bars to show? Are there any other phones around on the same SIM/Network, that you can compare with? If you can, put your SIM in another handset and see how it goes? Or another SIM in your handset.

 

Do you expect you should get better signal than you are? What impact are you having - can't call, droputs, poor data speeds etc.?

Re: Signal strength bars on mobile

I initially thought this was a mobile network issue but is it actually a home Wi-Fi problem?

 

What internet service and mak/model of modem do you have?

 

Does your device connect to other Wi-Fi networks and only has trouble with your home network?

 

Do other devices connect OK to your home Wi-Fi network?

In addition to suggestions from Steve, in the Settings menu, do a Network Reset and reboot your phone. You only mention SD card, so take out and reinsert your SIM (card).
