How To Increase 3G Speed on Your Android Device (Phone)?

Android is the most common OS in the world as of now and its being used as the OS of all the smartphones produced nowadays. Android OS comes in various versions ranging from v1.0 to v4.0. The most common among them is Android v2.2 which gave a sudden slant to iOS’ market.

Android users find it really hard to get the signal for 3G in remote areas and in those harsh conditions it becomes almost impossible for one person to remain connected to the whole world. But this cut off won’t be anymore. In this tutorial I am going to teach you how to optimize the 3G to yield the best results. The tutorial goes like this –


Android Signal

 Step 1 – Unlock the Android phone and go to Home>Menu>Setting.

Step 2 – Now go to Wireless & Network and from there tap Mobile Networks.

Step 3 – Check the text box which is located right next to 3G Data.

Step 4 – Now press back two times.

Step 5 – Now go to About Phone and from there click System Updates.

Step 6 – Now tap Update PRL. Updating PRL will refresh the towers in your vicinity and luckily if your mobile catches the signal then you will see a huge change!

Step 7 –Now go back to home and from there Press and hold the Power. Hold it until a popup menu appears. Now switch the mobile to Airplane Mode. You can revert back to normal mode by repeating this identical process.

Step 8 – No 8th Step!

There is not only one way which can help you to increase 3G signal quality of your phone so we have decided to mention all the important ones.
