Sun's polarity switch; cell phone interference?

According to the Weather Channel, the sun is about to do a polarity switch in about 3 or 4 months. This apparently happens every 7 years or so, so I'm assuming if there is any sort of effect here on Earth we would have noticed from the past. Anyways, my question to all of you knowledgeable people here is: When this occurs we will notice any sort of cell phone reception issues? Be it for the day or a week or what have you? The last time the sun "flipped" was in 2001, albeit we had cell phones back then I feel as though they weren't advanced as they are today. Do you guys think anything noticeable will happen with this upcoming flip?

My apologies, do you know anything else about it? I can only find topics related to the sun or cell phone radios. Nothing really mixed together lol.

It happens every 11-13 years, the solar maximum happens as well during this. It can cause major problems if one bursts towards earth. But that's a slim chance, if ones strong enough. it can knock out all communication world wide. Which thankfully mite not happen this time.

That would be quite terrible. We would have to resort back to using paper cups connected by string :lol:

the flip happens during solar maximum.. which is usually when we have the most communications issues.. due to more sunspots and solar flares and CME's usually... this solar cycle's maximum has been rather muted, and so far has been the quietest since 1906

The reversing polarity has little affect on us that I'm aware of. However, the solar max, which we are currently in, can have effects in that large solar flares are more likely.

 

A large solar flare can interrupt satellite communications, cause fluctuations in the power grid, and other inconveniences. During the last solar max, there was one flare that cause some minor blackouts, mainly in Canada and Finland. The main effect is that planes have to be routed further from the poles, but there is generally few impacts that the majority of us will notice. Thankfully, this solar max has been very tame, and will likely continue to be very very quiet.

Well that's good news then. I knew solar flares could cause issues I just wasn't sure how bad they'd be this time around. I love how knowledgeable everyone is on this site. Such a wonderful community we're building here :)

Until we get a solar eruption aimed directly at us and it wipes out all life on the planet.

I'm going to start blaiming all my cell phone problems, from here on forward, on the upcoming solar flip.

ehh worst that will happen is that the towers will get a sun tan  B)... Even if it gets bad America might not be facing the sun at that time and it could knock out like Europes communications.... W.E.. lol :P

Why stop at cell phone communications? Anytime you don't want to listen to someone... It's the magnetic flip of the sun.. It's what causes the "buzz" I can't hear you right now please leave a message and sometime in the next 11 years I'll get back to you...

    • I found some automated crash reports from a Motorola Ace.. not sure if they were from you or not, but they are bizarre. The error is a security exception claiming "insufficient location permissions" but the triggering code is the block that runs once location permissions are granted. 🤷‍♂️ EDIT: I'm guessing they are from you. The timestamps were from 5-10 minutes before your post, and it's on two identical devices.

More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday.

    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
