Been with Virgin on a sim only plan for 3 weeks now, i use a Lumia 1520. Cant get a signal indoors apart from a small area in my kitchen where i've had to draw a template round the exact spot the phone sits on the worktop so that i can receive and send texts etc. I thought with it being on the EE network it would be a great signal. How wrong i was. Do Virgin do indoor signal boosters ?
The coverage checker is a joke. I suspect it is no more than a computerised mast location and geography calculation, nothing like on the ground. I am supposed to be good to excellent, which it is if I walk to the main road past the estate but not indoors or outdoors
In my case Virgin (capital V), O2, vodaphone (small v) and 3 but my iPhone does not show relative signal strength. No Orange or small v virgin.. And my phone is currently showing no signal or 1 or 2 dots, mainly 1.
Exactly but Virgin deny dead spots because it would be too expensive to actually measure the signal strength so sell on the basis of theory and hope they can get away with it, one day advertising standards might get involved.
