However, you can manually update your phone's list of cell towers to improve your reception.
The more you move around while you talk on the phone, the harder the phone has to work and the spottier your reception may be. If your reception doesn't improve, move on to the next step.
Move to a higher floor in your house or building if one's available; even standing up can help.

A voice prompt says "Welcome to Verizon Wireless programming" and prompts you to press 1 to program or activate your phone or press 2.

Your phone displays a message that begins "Your phone is now activated."Sometimes your phone connects to a cell tower with poor reception and doesn't look for a tower with better reception even though one might be available.
