We introduce a new model for cell phone signal problem, which is stochastic van der Pol oscillator with condition that ensures global boundedness in phase space and keeps unboundedness for frequency. Also we give a new definition for stochastic Poincare map and find a new approximation to return time and point. The new definition is based on the numerical observation. Also we develop a new approach by using dynamic tools, such as method of averaging and relaxation method, to estimate the return time and return point. Thus we can show that the return time is always not Gaussian and return point's distribution is not symmetric under certain section.
