the keypad and dial the following code: *3001#12345#* and then press call. If you dialed it
correctly, your iPhone will enter Field Test Mode and you’ll see the numerical value for signal
strength in the upper left hand corner of the screen where the signal strength was previously
displayed in bars. To exit and return your iPhone to normal status, all you need to do is hit the
Home button. The mode is available on any iPhone running iOS 4.1 and all later versions.
Android Field Test Mode
Accessing Field test mode on Android phones is also straightforward. You simply need to
