Moto G7 Power phone signal

2020-02-11, 18:50 PM

I have a Moto g7 on Tesco mobile,I find the signal poor in lots of places in my town,I had a few Moto G phones and hadn't had any problems before buying the G7 Power,it's annoying,has anyone else had any problems and managed to sort them?

I spoke to the guys in the Tesco store and they said my phone was fine,well it was while I was in their store! They also said they hadn't heard about anyone having signal problems

I WILL NEVER BUY A MOTOROLA PRODUCT AGAIN. THEY ARE CHEAPLY MADE AND THE COMPANY DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT. THIS WAS EVEN BEFORE THE PURCHASE BY LENOVO.

If ever I have signal problems there's some things I do to help.

 

1: A manual scan for a Network and deliberately choose WRONG one and let it fail. Then choose the correct one. Then press and hold the Power button long enough for the phone to reboot. This is a true,"Soft Reset" non data destructive operation that emulates taking the Battery out and can clear clogged Ram old data.

 

2: Do a Network Reset but write down your WiFi logins as they will get wiped and then a Soft Reset.

 

3: In busy areas most people will be grabbing all the 4G/LTE Bandwidth so I have a 4G/LTE 3G switcher widget from the Playstore and change to 3G. Sometimes a good 3G will out perform a Patchy bad 4G/LTE.

 

 

HTH :)

It's not really a switcher but a shortcut but then it doesn't use any Phone resources and NO ads :)

 PS

 

Very useful at Sporting and Music events :)

The resets may have cleared the connection fault so you may not need the Switcher but at least you know it's there and doesn't cost anything.

 

As for 2G that's only for calls and text anyway :)

 

It can be just one bit of corrupted data in a setting to cause problems :(
