What to do if you lose communication while camping?

For many of us, there is nothing like going into the great outdoors to get away from the stress and strife of modern-day life. Unfortunately, however, while being out in the wilderness is great to unwind, it’s still nice to have some connection to the outside world, which is why we also bring our phones with us. However, trying to get reception can be a huge pain, and if you ever lose your device while out in the woods, it can be almost impossible to retrieve it. For that reason, we are going to go over what to do if you lose your communication and how to find your phone with AVG if it is lost.

 

Maintaining Reception

lose communication 2If you are worried about losing your signal while out camping, you can plan ahead by bringing other devices that can offer you cell service no matter where you are. These include mobile wireless routers, cell phone boosters, and portable battery chargers to help you maintain access to your device at all times. These are the best ways to stay connected, but that doesn’t mean they are the only ones.

For those that didn’t plan ahead, you can help improve your signal in a couple of ways. First, you can find a clear, elevated area that can give you more direct access to a signal, or you can craft your own makeshift antenna. Chip cans and aluminum foil can help boost your phone’s range if you know what you’re doing. Fortunately, there are plenty of tutorials out there that can help.

 

Losing Your Phone

If the worst happens and you misplace your device while camping, all is not lost. If you have AVG as your Android security and antivirus, then you can track your phone’s location, even if it’s off. This will help you pinpoint where exactly you left your phone so that you can retrieve it. Fortunately, if it’s in the woods somewhere, then you shouldn’t have to worry about someone stealing it.

 

 

Overall, the best way to keep your phone in tip-top shape while camping is to plan ahead and have AVG antivirus installed beforehand.

    Great tips if this situation ever happens. Although while camping – it’s the least worried place I am usually when I lose the reception. Never lost my phone while camping too, but wouldn’t like that idea – because if there’s no reception somebody else can’t call – for me to hear where I left it last haha! Then again I guess that’s why you would have the AVG product.

    I love the idea of making an antenna out of chip cans. Would be hilarious to see that. I don’t mind switching it all Off for a few days in the great outdoors!

    Oh wow, I didn’t know that there was technology that could track your phone even when there’s no service. I haven’t lost my phone when camping but will keep this in mind if I ever do. It’s crazy how much we rely on our phones these days. But it also can keep us safe.
