what happened to my phone network?

by lihaliha / September 19, 2012 5:02 PM PDT

Why does my phone have no network when I'm making a call. After hanging up, I have to restart my phone or there would be no network for a long time. I don't know why. Has it happened to you? Anyone who knows, please give a hand. Thanks a lot.

(NT) Why not making it a warranty case?

It's out of warranty. And my friend's phone also has the same problem. I don't know whether that is a common problem or not.

some areas

Thank you. It happened in some areas. Is it because of the different signal in different places?

Try this.

Keep the phone on the charger during that call. One of our really old phones would do what you describe and all it was, was an old battery. Tough to diagnose so don't feel bad.

It's said the phone's radiation is very high during charging. Maybe it's not a good idea to charge during the call. But thank you the same.

Nothing to be worried about. Ask a physicist.

Then you may be forever wondering why it does this.

As I wrote, it was a bit hard to diagnose which is why I offered how we discovered what the issue was.

It appears you need to talk to a physicist.
