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.

    This app’s correct name is Signal Booster and it really works. Although is quite simple to be fair, it just enables airplane mode and goes back, but unlike manual approach it does it much faster (both switching and recovery from airplane mode). Worth $1.

    I have Verizon and I’m in an area with great coverage but inside my house the bars drop to 1 and most of my phone calls drop when im inside the house. Do you think this would work for me?

    I called Sprint about this and they gave me a code to call that does this, for free. I just set the code/number as a favorite and call it and it updates my service in about 30 seconds. The code for Sprint is ##873283#
