Abstract

Many wireless mobile units support a display which provides the user with an indication of the signal strength between the mobile and the cell site serving the mobile. For mobile-to-mobile intercon- nect calls, audio quality is affected not only by the quality of signal between the local mobile and its serving cell site but by inadequate signal strength from the target mobile (or the mobile on the far end) and its corresponding cell site. A convenient and useful feature would enable a mobile to display the signal strength of the far end mobile.
