How to Program Cell Phones for a Local Cell Towerby LaoA ; Updated September 28, 2017
Clearly, some portions of an area may get better cell phone coverage than others. However, if you always lose mobile phone service when traveling to a certain part of your city or town, you do have the ability to program your phone to locate a local cell tower. Depending on your network provider, this method varies.
Verizon users should enter *22899 and push “Send.” Wait to hear a set of tones and allow the phrase “Programming Successful” to show up on your screen to conclude the process.
Sprint clients have to enter the code *18 and push “Send.” You will hear two beeps in rapid succession.
Contact your cellular carrier directly if you have T-Mobile or AT&T. Ask the representative to re-sync your device to a tower in your area. Then, turn your phone off and on to complete the process.
