    I have recently purchased my first Android (Galaxy s2 skyrocket) and I've been having problems with my call signal.

    When I go to work every morning, I have to ride the train for about an hour which goes into a tunnel for about 30 minutes. When I reach my destination and come out from the train station (which is underground), my phone claims to have signal and data but I can not make any calls, can't text, cant use the internet until I shut my phone down and turn it back on.

    Also, when I talk to people on the phone, they tell me that my voice gets super quiet sometimes and I know its not me because I never had that problem with my old phone.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the forums, zero!

    I'm going to move this to the skyrocket sub forums in hopes that a fellow owner can help you out. Maybe they have a few tips for you.

    Instead of shutting it down,try turning on airplane mode for a few seconds then off works for me when I go thru a tunnel by the airport.

    Thanks, I will try it but are you living in NYC? We have no reception in tunnels here at any point.

    No near St. Louis, when I go thru the tunnel and come out phone has signal but won't do anything until I turn on airplane mode then off it allows it to find signal again. Faster than turning it off and waiting for it to boot up again.
