You have just installed your Cel-Fi system. You have followed the directions and maybe even gone through some basic online troubleshooting steps… but you do not see any more bars on your mobile device. According to the bars on your handset you are not getting better signal after installing your Cel-Fi Booster Device.
Even if your Cel-Fi is installed correctly and the service you experience is substantially improved, your handset may not show these improvements with higher signal bars.
The easiest way to confirm that the Cel-Fi is working is to remember what your initial need was. For example, if you had no coverage in this area before and now you do, or if you were experiencing dropped calls before and now you are able to hold calls without an issue, you can say without a doubt that your handset is getting a better signal thanks to your Cel-Fi Smart Signal Booster!
The simple truth is that the number of bars might not always change. The bars on your handset or tablet can be confusing as they do not always show raw signal strength, as one might expect. Almost all mobile manufactures have their own algorithm to calculate things like signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio, and channel loading among other things. Here is a short video that explains what your phone bars are not telling you.
