Hi

I live in a rural area with poor phone reception. I'm trying to find a phone that has better than average reception if there is such a thing. Only need a basic phone to make phone calls and receive texts.

thanks

I always found O2 was the best for coverage outside of cities. Orange is very poor and Vodafone not far behind.

That's definitely the case in Norfolk.

I'm on Vodafone in a semi rural area, Vodafone and o2 are the best - with o2 being the overall winner me thinks!

Get a Nokia

If you live in yorkshire or further north than that forget vodafone, everytime I used to step foot into yorkshire I'd have no service until I left.

O2 has the best signal overall. You could always try siganl strength in your area by getting free sim cards from the different providers and see which works best for you.

I think the op is asking whether there are phones that have improved reception over others, not providers.

Google 'best mobile for weak signal areas'

Yeah Nokias are pretty good for reception.

Combine with an 02 sim for maximum enjoyment ;-)

Do you have any neighbours/friends that you could ask or test from your house?

Thanks for the help. I was asking if there is a mobile phone with better than average reception. I'm in a contract with three at the moment but I have tried sims for all providers and none work well in my area.
