/ mobile phone signal
Has anyone tried to boost the signal by buying on of the signal enhancers that fit inside the phone (like a small transfer) that can be bought off ebay etc... And is it worth doing
inside the phone? not sure
there used to be a thingy you stuck to a window that did something like this
UMA... if you phone supports it and you have a wifi thingy in your hoose, it'll make a huge difference
I received a text from Tmobile today that says I can now use orange as well so check if you can use Tmobile signals as well now they are together.
It could be coincidence, but I swear that the reception around me took a major turn for the worst at exactly the time these network-sharing agreements began. Don't know what the reason for that might be...
The signal enhancer thingies are black magic. You have as much chance of influencing reception by sticking pins in an effigy of the MD of T-mobile.
Orange and T are on 1800MHz which is not great for getting round corners and through walls. Many phones are really rubbish for receiving radio signals. This is unfortunate since some users still think that is their primary purpose. Most users think that their primary purpose is to make them look cool and trendy.
If you are on Vodafone and have a 3G-capable phone and good home broadband then you can fix this (Sure Signal). Otherwise, tough luck.
I work for VirginMedia. In an odd twist of irony you get 5 bars if you have an orange or t-mobile phone in our office, but if you're on the virginmobile network, you might as well yell into a tin can. No signal at all in 90% of the building.
