What type of reception can one get on their cell phones if they are very close to cell tower locations?
Cell/mobile phone signals can be obstructed by all manor of things including atmospheric weather and buildings. Perusing the web, it seems that there is no guarantee that standing next to a cell/mobile tower will provide a better signal. One user on the forum at MacRumors stated they were unable to get a signal greater than two bars when standing at the foot of the AT&T tower.

It depends on your cell phone and which type you have. To me, i think they have pretty much the same reception as a regular cell phones. I've used them tons of times and they …work fine for me. I think that it depends where you are, and what you have. It varies through people.

Cellphone towers range in height, from 40 feet all the way up. Here in BC, free standing towers are typically 60 - 650 feet tall, most averaging around the 100 - 300 foot tall… range.
Not sure about Verizon but I have been lead to believe that AMT American Tower builds most US urban towers and SBA builds most rural ones. AMT(21.65 B) is a lot bigger company…. SBA (5.0 B) Maybe Verizon uses them. cheers.
It gets service for cell phones, which makes it possible to make/receive calls and texts. And, also serves as a sort of pass over to help carry wifi internet links to.
Electrical wiring with current flowing through it produces an electromagnetic field. That magnetic field can interfere with other electromagnetic radiation, such as the …radio signal that are produced and received by a cellular phone.
At&t has better reception than other major companies.
They are programed with a fequency, so much like a walkie talkie can connect to another on the same fequency, it is kind of similar with cell phones.
Type in the number in google and see what you find. Or, type in reverse cell phone lookup. It will usually give you the town, state, and cell phone carrier. Hope this helps!! …:)
The reason cell phone reception is worse in a car is because the car's metal frame and skin act as a "faraday cage" which blocks and grounds out signals that are inside …and outside of it. If you use a rooftop antenna it will get the signal out of the car. Many new cell phones only put out around on tenth of a watt, compared to in the old days when bag phones, if you are old enough to remember them, put out three watts. The newer phones just don't have enough power in some situations. You can use a booster or amplifier to boost the signal and that will help greatly.
Almost all cell phone providers offer a mobile repeater if one has bad reception. These include Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Please note, one does not have to buy a re…peater from a mobile cell phone provider because they are widely available in retail stores.
There are many factors that can cause cell phone reception to be spotty. Some of the reasons for spotty phone reception include being out of range of the provider's network, …a poorly working phone, or interference from other devices.
