If you’ve ever found yourself wandering around trying to find a better signal then you might want to try this iPhone trick.
A viral YouTube video explains how a “secret sub-menu” on your iPhone can turn your signal bar into numbers so you can see when your signal is getting better or worse.
Video is courtesy of popular YouTube channel josh connect.
In Voice Over, users are instructed to go to their iPhone keypad and enter the code: “*3001#12345#*”.
First you have typed all those symbols and numbers and then click on the green call button.
A hidden menu should pop up instructing you to click on “LTE”.
The presenter then clicks on “Serve Cell Measurement”.
Then he explains: “Now what do these numbers mean, they are your service power”.
The video explains that the number you see at the top should be as close to zero as possible to indicate good service strength.
If you move your phone around you should notice the number change.
Apparently “negative 50” or “negative 40” means good service.
However, “negative 140” means no service at all.
