weBoost | February 7, 2012

Today we’re talking about dropped calls. Everyone has had at least one run in with the pesky things, am I right? You know how it goes…you’re on the phone having a deep conversation about the meaning of life, and all of a sudden, the person on the other end is no longer there. But, have you ever wondered what actually causes dropped calls? Dropped calls can be caused by a variety of things, but here are some factors:

The phone is too far away from the cell tower There are natural or man made obstructions in the way You are using your phone inside a car or a buildling Inclement weather You are in a dreaded “Dead Zone”

You may get that little beeping noise letting you know your call was dropped, the “Call Failed” message, or you may get no notification at all. Whatever the outcome, it’s hard to deny that those dropped calls get old quickly! Thank goodness for Wilson boosters like the Wilson Sleek, that prevent dropped calls, limited range and slow data rates for cell phones and data cards.
