My reception at work is terrible. My colleagues have full reception, and I dont have a signal at all. Seems to be an issue with some of the desire handsets. Have any of you tried any passive antenna boosters, like this one: HTC Desire Antenna Booster ? Or some bigger boosters that I can place on my desk.
I love my phone, but it is essential that I can use it while im in the office.
I am working on Android application (Droid Incredible). I am planning to read passive RFID tags using Android phone but I found that there is no slot for Android to connect to RFID reader. After some research, I found out that I will have to get RFID reader which can send RF data over bluetooth to Android. But I am not sure which company manufactures it or what will be cost of such RFID reader. Is there any one who can help me or throw some light on this issue?
I have battery booster installed on my phone and i think it is using up more battery than its saving but the best feature i like in this app is it auto turns off the wifi when the phone is locked i like this feature very much as i forget to turn off my wifi many times and it will continue to eat up my battery, is there any other app that does this specific function so i can uninstall battery booster?
While I've never dropped a call and I alway have 3G I always have either zero or one bar of signal showing. And my battery hits yellow midday with fairly light usage. Compared to my old house about 2 miles away (just moved last week) I would have full bars and my batter would last 16hrs before hitting yellow. So I think I need a network booster. First, do they actually work? Second, if so what is a good recommendation. Third, do they boost boost data evdo signal too or just voice?
I was wondering if anyone knew of an Audio Booster or Equalizer for Android. I have searched the App Store but haven't found one yet. I use to have a Touch Pro and HTC had an Audio Booster program that let you have an equalizer that you could change while listening to music (only with headphones plugged in) from Hip Hop to Rock and etc...

I want to use the FME female connector below the battery for an external antenna mod. I bought a FME cable for another phone and I'll see if it fits. I want to use a telescoping antenna for it for portability, but I'm open to using something like the Wilson Electronics mirror mount antenna.Has anyone done this? This is a general Verizon/FME question, but since I have a Dinc, I thought I'd post it here. I'm going to drill a hole in the back cover and route the cable to the top of the phone. I live in a weak signal area and drop about 10% of my calls.
Does anyone know how the Evo's antenna will compare with the Hero?I just moved to sprint to get the Evo, but had to switch early. My wife and I were given Heroes to hold us over for two weeks until the Evo launch.I'm noticing that i'm having reception issues in areas where my iphone, and Incredible got decent to great coverage.Is this an issue with the Hero alone or a sign of Sprints smaller footprint then AT&T and Verizon?
Just came from twitter where HTCPedia had this article about the black, yellow and red insides of new phones. and they said the antenna was located on the back of the battery door and if you had it off you would have no signal haha im just a little amused i guess by that because i dont really understand how this works i mean if it doesnt connect somehow when the door is on and im a little worried the signal might not be the best what if the battery door gets loose or something idk what do you guys think From Black to Yellow and Red. HTC Adds Color to HD Mini, EVO 4G and Incredible Devices
When the application has a PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK, the CPU stays turned on, but what about the cellular antenna? Does the PhoneStateListener not receive any change in state from the antenna when the PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK is acquired?I have an application that needs to continuously read the signal strength while the user isn't using the phone.I suspect I need a FULL_WAKE_LOCK to do that. Is that true?
Every cell phone has a microwave emisor/receptor and it is used to make calls. My question is Do we can use it as a microwave detector to detect another cellphones, microwave oven leaks? Also use it as a mw radar.
Hoping I just did something stupid, rooted my old eris, played around with xtrsense for a while and it sat in a drawer for even longer since I typically carry the Dinc....well then I wanted to try a froyo rom on it so downloaded and installed KaosFroyo on it, then I got sidetracked and it sat in the drawer again until I wanted to use it at work to test lotus traveler on android and here is where the fun starts. The Eris won't activate, its like the radio will not even turn on. The signal bars just have a little x by them, no matter what rom I throw on there or nand backup I use its like the radio is borked? Any ideas on how to fix? am I missing a radio update from somewhere? then fail #2 I can't find my password to download the android traveler beta now anyway...grrI just tried flashing a different radio still doing the same thing. I'm confused
When I put it on I realized that it did not come with the antenna attached to the housing. When I put the new housing on, it looked great, but I had no reception. Looks like 3 stickers. I have looked all over and cant find them. Any idea where I could buy one?
I am trying to install an external WIFI antenna on my tablet (BQ Maxwell 2 Plus, rooted, CM10.1). The model of the antenna is TP - Link 722n.I have downloaded the drivers from backports project and, after compiling them, I have 8 .ko modules:
Apple really ticked me off with their latest stupid video.. Check out my article where i cover their latest video and have my own response to its ignorance. Apple's New Slogan Should Be, "When we mess up, everyone does!" NOTE: I do not dislike Apple products, I dislike Apple.
I was curious where the cell phone antenna for the 1x/3G coverage was located.I live in an area with excellent verizon service and when phone is in standby, the incredible gets one bar.When I make a call, it miraculously gets full coverage.I think its on the bottom of the phone, but is it on the very bottom edge (like where the microphone is) or is it along the back side of the phone.How is the best way to hold the phone to maximize service?
Is there a poweruser setting for the galaxy where I can increase the power to the wifi antenna? I'm having a bad signal 30 ft away from a wireless-n router. Ipad, iphones are all working very well outside my range.
New to this phone and loving it. I live out in the boonies and no DSL/Cable, no other carriers have 3G, so been using the tethered phone (Yes, 2GB + $10/GB ... I know!). Phone likes to switch between EDGE/3G. Phone unrooted.
1) Any app to easily force 3G only? I know about the dial #*#*197328640#*#* -> Option 1 -> Option 8 -> Option 4 -> RAT to WCDMA setting but would prefer an app for when I take the phone out with me.
2) Ordered an external antenna / connector. Will I really have to drill a hole in my battery cover? There has to be somewhere I can order a battery cover from with the hole there already? I can't be the only person wanting to do this.
Can anyone recommend a wireless software app that increase the wifi antenna capabilities? I get 1 bar (poor signal) in my house through 2 floors. It's a little ridiculous. Anyone else having similar problems?
Does anyone use a better program? Or is it better to pay for the upgraded version? Has anyone found a way to attach the Droid to their arm or waist? Where is the GPS antenna located? If my wife makes me a arm band for it I want to be able to have that portion of my phone exposed.
