    So often the wifi signal is weak,even if i am a few feet from the router. The cell reception is weak even if i am a few buildings away from a cell antenna. It doesnt drop calls though, once a week or so.

    Im using a transparent flexcase. So any tips on amplifying the signal? By the way if im oitta the city (in the countryside) the signal is very weak, unlike on my old non-smartphone.

    Thanks in advance.

    My suggestion would be to 1) factory reset (although I doubt this will help)

    2) return and exchange your phone.


    I was having lots of dropped calls with my GS3 and my carrier recommended I return the device as they were not aware of any issues for the device. The new one has not dropped a single call.

    I dont have dropped calls, yet. I have it for a week now. But i havent left the city. Im more concerned about the wifi and cell reception. Not the dropped calls. Thanks though. I appreciate your help.

    Btw i live in bulgaria, and cell reception is quite worse than in the US. There is also no 4G. :x
