Bad Signal and lag (alltel)

Hello. I really like my mogul but I am starting to get very annoyed. I can't hold a signal in my house worth anything. After I leave, my room especially, it's okay. My signal keeps going in and out also. Whenever I am on the phone, it fades in and out. I don't know what to do it is really agravating. Also, my phone seems to be running really slow lately. Like it's lagging. When I am texting it seems like sometimes it is a word behind like the text doesn't show up right away then in a couple seconds it all appears. I don't know what to do. Any help would be fantastic. And I am running wm6.1 and I am on the Alltel network .

Thanks, Jon

Re: Bad Signal and lag (alltel)

The best way to fix your signal is by updating your PRL. This will allow you to utilize all of the networks at our disposal - Alltel, Sprint and Verizon. Without any roaming charges.

Upgrade to 40051 and you should have better signal.

Regarding the lagging, check and see what is actively running on your phone. Close any extra programs that are running in the background. Run Oxios Hibernate (or any other programs that free up RAM). If that doesn't work, you may need to uninstall apps that you don't use. Lastly, you can either hard-reset or flash a new ROM with better memory management.

I can't guarantee that you will see an increase in signal, but you should. The PRL (Public Roaming List) is used by your phone to determine which towers to use and which order. By using a newer PRL (such as 40051), you will gain access to more towers, which should increase your service. Unless there aren't any towers near you, in which case you are out of luck.

And you will not see an increase in your bill, unless you travel outside your coverage area. I have not had any roaming charges ever, except for travel outside of the United States.

The 40051 PRL was taken from an Alltel Blackberry and is fully sanctioned by Alltel. For some reason, they distribute 3xxxx series PRLs to our phones and higher quality PRLs to Blackberries/computer network cards. You are not doing anything wrong at all. If you'd prefer to have Alltel send you the latest 3xxxx PRL, you can dial *228 and follow the instructions. It should give you better reception, but not as good as the 40051.
