Moto g5 weak signal

2020-01-29, 23:09 PM

I have had my Moto G5 play a month or so I have to go to a window or door to use it I'm in a bad area for receiving signals my other phones in the past I could use them thru out the house. If I unlock my bootloader will that help with signal. I'm aware by doing this there is risks and warrenty void just checking my options

NO, unlocking the bootloader changes nothing related to receiver sensitivity.

Hi Squarebody,

 

Sorry to know about this. Have you checked with a different SIM card or network provider? If not, can you check and let me know if it's the same? Also, let me know which network carrier you are using.

Suman

Hi Squarebody,

 

I would like to inform you that unlocking the Bootloader will not help the signal. I would recommend you contact the carrier and work with them for further assistance.
