Virtually all phones have the "bars" or "dots" graphic that displays on your home screen, supposedly so you know what your cell phone signal strength is. The problem with that graphical representation is that it lacks any kind of standards.

Its a bit complicated process, and requires more efforts, but it works and will give you a precise number for your signal strength. All you have to do is dial *3001#12345#* and then press the call button.

Hold down the power button, a power screen will pop up. When it pops up press the home button till the home screen reappears. You'll see on the top left, you'll have numbers which replaces bars or circles that indicated your network.

These numbers are typically expressed as a negative number, If you see numbers between -40 and -80 the signal is strong. Anything below that is a bad signal, and if you're down around -140, you have no signal.
