    Mobiles with Really good signal.

    I am currently with orange, and I don't get good signal on my phone mostly 0 bars except 1 room in the house, my room luckily enough. I have tried the nokia 6300, nokia n95, lg ks360, nokia 2600, and sony ericson w810i. I am due an upgrade so could someone recommend a phone that has really good signal and would work fine, it would have to pick up good 3g signal as I want internet on the phone. Thanks in advance

    Its the network (orange) at fault not the phone

    So i would suggest instead of upgrading, ditch them and join o2 or another network.

    agree with the above, find your nearest aerial and see whose it is, likely o2 as they are the best countrywide. if you are in an old house like i am you will get some black spots but orange,and t mobile legendary as poor.

    First of all double check to see what sort of coverage orange claim you will be getting at your home address by clicking this link... web.orange.co.uk/cov…ge/

    Then check to see where all your local mobile phone mast / aerials are by clicking here sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/

    Maybe you can pursuade orange to bump up the signal on the nearest antenna otherwise i would try break your contract with them stating your not getting the correct service from them due to lack of signal.

    I used to be on one2one years ago before it turnt to t-mobile and i had poor signal in my house not only that but while out and about it wasnt that good. Never had a problem with o2 though and i think vodafone are ok aswel,

    the orange website claims I have excellent signal, but what strikes me as funny is there is a 3 antenna near, and dont 3 and orange use the same one?

    also would orange actually bump up the signal just for me?

    Doubt they will but you can always suggest they do or you'll want to move on due to lack of service

    i read you cant move because of bad signal, cos I do get some signal, its jus the type of signal where u wave the phone around in the air looking for hours.

    I wouldnt put up with that personally

    is the signal on 1 bar on 3G try disabling 3G and see if it improves your signal?

    + i highly doubt they could improve your signal, it'll be the same for everyone near the antenna

    you could just move house

    Well let me tell you something, I have a orange mast right near my house and once most of my neighbours car alarms/central locking would not work. After doing some research i found it to be the orange mobile phone mast at fault and so i contacted orange instantly. They denied it but within 1 day everyones car alarms were working again fine. Even though they were playing up for a whole week and a half before that. i think they cranked the signal up or done something to make the mast interfer with our car alarm frequencies. Literally 10 cars on 1 street were effected.

    so it isnt a very good idea to boost the signal? well for the people with cars anyway

    I had this for a number of years and agree the phone can affect your signal. My experience is stay totally clear of Samsung, and also Sony Ericsson can be a bit weak too. I find that the iphone picks up the signal really well and Nokias are pretty reliable too. The best thing I did was move to o2, infinately better than Orange, T-mobile and 3 which were all rubbish, I do live in the countryside though.
    My advice would be to either see how your friends service providers work around your house, or to order some free sims, o2 and t-mobile defo offering free sims at the moment.

    He said hes tried SONY ERIC, LG, NOKIA. with no luck. A different branded phone wont give you a different signal strength. I totally disagree with you there.

    Agreed w/ Jagga, its the provider, not the phone.
