It is a known fact that weather conditions can affect the quality of calls you make. Extreme weather conditions have the power to affect your device’s performance. Some of the weather conditions that can adversely affect your signal reception are:

Heat

Extreme temperatures are not good for any cell phone. Extreme heat can disable your cell phone from picking up signals properly. The radio waves that make up the cell phone signals get distorted or often totally lost due to the extreme temperature. Very hot weather can even cause the battery to leak.

Quoting Motorola’s warning here, “A car’s internal temperature can exceed 80 degrees Celsius, and the temperature of a dashboard with direct exposure to the sun can exceed 120 degrees Celsius.”

The statement highlights how dangerous extreme heat is not just to the signals, but also to your cell phone. Make sure you keep it in a proper atmosphere – away from heat, fire, and direct sunlight.

Cold

If heat can affect your phone – so can cold. Through research, it has been proven that extreme cold can affect a cell phone’s ability to catch signals properly. It can also destroy its components and cause greater damage in the long run.

A study at the Environ Laboratories in Minneapolis showed the adverse affects that cold temperature can have on cell phones and their performance. According to the result, the screen started to dim at 10 degrees Fahrenheit. As the temperature started decreasing, the conditions only worsened. At minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit, some phones experienced battery issues with signals also dropping. And at minus 40 Fahrenheit most of the phones just could not perform and shut down.

The best way to combat such weather conditions is to cover your cell phones in a piece of cloth and to not put it in an open atmosphere.

Storms and Lightning

Storms add moisture to the air, which heavily distorts cell phone reception. Network companies have failed to come up with a fool-proof solution to this problem, as lightning and thunderstorms are not in their hands. Such adverse conditions can affect your cell phone’s ability to receive signal for a short span of time. Such effects are temporary and go away once the weather is back to normal and the moisture is absorbed from the atmosphere.

On the other hand, lightning also causes poor signal reception as it discharges particles into the atmosphere that interfere with signal waves.

Rain and Humidity

As per many researchers and cell phone resource journals, a cell phone’s ability to receive signals can be affected by humidity. Signals find it difficult to travel when the atmosphere is humid. A little moisture is okay for the signals, but heavy showers can hugely affect signals and cause poor reception.

These are the weather conditions that can affect your cell phone’s ability to catch signals and cause poor reception. Remember to always refer to your cell phone manufacturer’s guidelines in order to find out the best working conditions and improve signal reception, to have a smooth experience and prevent malfunctions.  In many cases using a signal booster can increase coverage in adverse weather conditions.
