    EE - No Signal

    Hiya All!

    Don't know if anyone has ever been in this situation so putting it out there,

    While at work, I get no signal at all, to make a phone call or receive/send a text I have to go outside...which is pretty useless to me! This is EE who claim to have the biggest mobile network in the UK :/ (Rubbish!)

    Anyone ever made a complaint about signal to them? I would like to get out of my contract but don't know where I stand really...Various websites give different opinions.

    Got out of a few contacts because of signal issues and never had any issues doing so. What you might want to keep in mind though is that if you can get signal outside the building it could be the building that's causing the problem rather than your network.

    Interesting, I do think the building has something to do with it, but even outside it can be so intermittent, was on the phone yesterday and had to ring someone 3 times to finish the conversation because of it cutting off!

    Yeah, I had that on one android phone I had but didn't work brilliantly, I think the technology has to be inside the phone...I just have to tell everyone to WhatsApp me or iMessage while im at work. Kinda Annoying!

    If it's a building issue and you can't get a signal inside with any operator, have a look at moving to O2 and using their TUGo app - this gives you all calls and texts routed via WiFi but still using your allowances.

    I've just gone with T-mobile from vodafone and get a great signal all over. Have you done a coverage check on your work address to see what different speeds you can get there?

    It says I can get 2G, texts and phone calls with 2 bars outside of the building, so the building looses 2 bars I suppose!

    Can't see it on the android app store buddy. Though I am on Three. To be honest my mum never has any signal and she's with EE says she will never go back with them. Even their home broadband is useless as discussed on a previous thread of mine.
    I don't rate them and it is true you can get out of a contract due to signal issues, three do a box where if you call up you plug a box into your phone line and it will redistribute three signal around the house I used to get none as soon as I entered my house because the walls where so thick but now this box is installed it absolutely excellent. My school is trying to get one aswell as we have 4 phones on Three and it sounds like we are going to get 4 separate boxes for each phone! Can't fault them to be honest!
