With more than one billion smartphones currently in use worldwide and a doubling of that number over the next two years, it is not surprising that one of the biggest frustrations of everyday life is to drop calls . Of course, we talk on our mobile phones, but also with news, e-mails, web searches, video chats and more. It’s our way of staying connected, which is why call cancellations, dead zones and poor mobile phone reception are so frustrating.
In a recent study by Pew Internet & American Life Project, abandoned calls were the biggest complaint from mobile phone owners. According to the study, 72% of mobile phone users at least occasionally missed calls, and 32% did so at least a few times a week. It’s a very large number of people who are very frustrated. So, what makes a cell phone call, and can we do anything to make it less? We will look at it.
Reasons for Dropped Calls
There are a number of reasons why a mobile phone call can be dropped, which can be classified by problems with the mobile service provider, problems in your local environment and finally problems specifically with your phone. Let us examine each one more closely.
Distance from Cell Towers
Another common reason for deleting calls is when you encounter an undesired area called “dead zone”. Dead zones exist for a variety of reasons. In remote areas, there are large areas of the dead zone where cell towers are unavailable because there are few residents or travelers.
Desert areas are a good example of an environment where there are many dead zones. In more populated areas, dead zones may still exist due to misaligned towers, meaning that the areas are not properly covered, as well as in locations obstructed by obstacles such as hills, mountains, trees and tall buildings, etc. Areas such as U -Bahn lines, cellars and parking garages are often found underground.
A cellular network consists of several different cellular towers that your phone uses to make a call. Your phone will automatically connect to the nearest tower when you call and continue to communicate with this tower as long as it is at hand. However, if you are traveling, whether on foot, by car or with other people, you will probably leave the area of your nearest tower and there will be a transfer to take your call to the next tower.
In most cases, this transfer will take place without any problems, but occasionally there is a complication that causes your call to be canceled during the transfer. This complication could be caused by extreme mobile traffic on one of the towers, problems in the main software, power outages and more. These are all problems on the wearer side, and even if it’s a downside, you can usually make your call without any problem.
In addition to dead zones, your local environment may also affect abandoned calls. The main cause of poor reception in your area is probably the type of building materials used in your home or office. Materials such as wire mesh, sheet metal, insulation types, reinforced concrete and many other factors contribute to signal deterioration and loss.
If the signal from a digital cellular phone is too compromised and enough data is lost during transport, it is likely that the connection will be interrupted and the call will be interrupted, even if your phone indicates that it still has a bar of signal.
After all, your mobile phone itself can be the cause of missed calls. If your antenna is damaged, you may have poor cellphone reception, data loss and frequently missed calls. Removing calls and other issues can also occur if your phone’s roaming software has not recently been updated or has been damaged in any way. Finally, a mobile phone needs a high quality power supply to maintain a stable connection during a call. When your battery runs out, it increases the likelihood of a dropped call.
Overall, there are a number of location-related factors that are out of your hands, resulting in interrupted calls. However, there are also some factors that you can change. The next section will show you how to troubleshoot the issues you control to reduce the number of missed calls.
Solutions to Prevent Dropped Calls
If you usually lose calls at home or in the office, and you have a good cell phone signal outside the building, it is likely that your problem is due to the materials used to build the building. In this situation, a mobile phone signal amplifier is the best choice for increasing the cellular phone signal in the building and reducing or eliminating the number of missed calls.
A cell phone signal amplifier is a system that takes a good cell phone signal that is normally found outside the building, amplifying it, and then sending it to an area that receives little or no signal. The system essentially bypasses the cause of the poor reception and provides an amplified signal to the needy area. The only limitation to using a cellular signal repeater is that you must be able to place an antenna in an area that has a good signal. If you live or work in an area where the signal is irregular or absent, a cell phone signal amplifier can not help you.

If you have interrupted calls regularly but other users in your area are not from the same network operator, your phone may be the cause. Your best option is to contact your operator and locate the nearest location where you can take it for diagnosis and maintenance. You can test if you have a bad antenna, software or other problem.
An interrupted call can be a frustrating experience for anyone, especially if you have an important call or have to wait a long time. By understanding the causes of call interruptions, you can diagnose the likely cause of the missed call and seek solutions to prevent missed calls in the future
