SignalRefresh Promises To Boost Your iPhone’s Weak Network Signal [Jailbreak]


If the next iPhone has LTE, Sprint still wants to offer you an unlimited plan.
Full signal a rare sight on your iPhone? Try SignalRefresh.

Struggling to get a decent signal on your iPhone? If you’ve jailbroken your handset with the latest Absinthe 2.0 release, then you may be in luck. SignalRefresh is a new, $0.99 iPhone tweak that promises to boost your signal strength to give you “the strongest possible voice/data signal at your current location.”

As you move around with your iPhone, you device is busy jumping between cell towers to try and establish a strong signal, ensuring you receive incoming calls, text messages, and Facebook pokes. The problem is, sometimes your iPhone can’t keep up with you, and it gets stuck trying to find the nearest cell tower.

SignalRefresh simply refreshes its connection, forcing it to reconnect with the nearest, strongest connection. The same results could be achieved by rebooting your handset or switching into and out of airplane mode. But SignalRefresh makes the whole process quicker and easier.

It almost sounds too good to be true, but according to those who have tried it, SignalRefresh actually works pretty well. I’ve been using it myself this morning, but I already have a pretty good iPhone signal in my town, so I didn’t really notice any changes. But Redmond Pie reports:

SignalRefresh does exactly what it says on the tin and in a lot of circumstances will provide a noticeably stronger signal for a certain subset of users.

Once installed on your device, you’ll find an icon for SignalRefresh on your home screen. When your signal strength is poor, simply open it up and let it do its thing.

This $0.99 tweak is available to download now via the BigBoss repo within Cydia. Let us know how it performs on your iPhone.
