Unfortunately, there's only so much carriers and smartphone vendors can do about improving coverage, signal, and reception quality right now. We're sure the overwhelming mobile technology progress will catch up to these important areas as well and alleviate the issue. But while we're waiting for that wonderful moment, we can try improving the situation a little with signal boosting apps. Here are five recommendations to consider.

None of those work, they're just spam apps that steal info. I've worked in the business since the mid 90's, the only thing that truly works are physical electronic boosters such as Wilson boosters (weBoost now).

I have tried some these and agree that they do not really seem to help and are often full of ads. The better route is what BlackBerry has done with phones like the Passport where they use a custom antenna system and processing chips.

while i understand this, some of the ideas make sense, do they not? i mean already, cleaning out memory and cache should help boost speed, and conecting to the nearest uncongested tower? n giving network priority to YOUR device?? that sounds kinda cool if u ask me. n i KNOW ur device is Suposed to automaticly re-connect, but is seems like my "smart" device becomes the Literal Definition of Retarded, and works aginst me speed wise. n i dont have a bunch of crazy apps either. so yea im down to try these aps a lil. what do u think? does ANY of it make sense? ......kuz we both know that even tho physical is the obvious way to go, its hard to find non gimick ones that Actually boost. so mabey optimising the onboard physical componets is better?? talk to me please. im tryna figure it out

The fifth app, Internet Booster..., has a link in the original post to Signal Finder. You may like to correct this.

Also, try downloading the Cloudcheck app. Cloudcheck has a feature called Smartifi that monitors your wireless usage per device connected and allows users a holistic view into their network’s performance and productivity. Super useful for troubleshooting and learning how to configure your router’s settings for optimized performance!
