How does Cellphone Works?

Mobile phones are wireless. This means that they are not connected to any electrical line. The best way to help you understand how it works is to look on your radio. Radios transmit through a frequency. It has AM and FM frequencies. This is the same with cellphones, which also rely on a radio for it to work.

Mobile phones use and connect in towers. It means that in one tower, it will be regulated thousands of phone calls at one time will be enough for one specific place, and this problem resulted to the creation of more cellphone towers.

In small areas, it may only have one cellphone tower but in a large city, it is preferred to have for more number of towers.

Your cellular phone comes in sets of bars. These bars will tell you the power of your mobile phone to make a call. Basically, if the bars seem to be low it means that it is far from the cell tower. Then, if it is high, then your cellphone will receive an excellent reception from the cell tower.

As you are driving or going somewhere else, your mobile phone will automatically connect immediately to the cell tower that gives the highest and strongest signal. You will not even notice that this happens and your phone call will continue as it normal.

Each cell tower has numbers of channel, therefore increasing the number of mobile phone users that will come to the cell tower. In fact, there are over thousands of channels. Again, your cellphones use radio frequency, that’s why users must be aware that anyone can get on the same channel, which may lead to the possibility to hear your phone conversation.
