What about this generation? It is our fault that we are raised like this by the previous generation. We bitch about no service on things we dont even understand. This generation hasn't created anything yet because we are not successful yet. We only go with what we were provided with which was created by generations before. I am happy to say i am nothing like the stereotype. I hate technology and how addicted people are to it. I can't go an hour without my girlfriend checking facebook and then putting her phone back after reading stupid shit and saying that girl is a hoe, butch, lesbian, gossip. I hate it.
All phone service providers will allow you to cancel a contract if you don't get service in your area if you act immediately. Unless you've damaged the phone or something...whats the issue? Find one that works. You should have bought a prepaid card first to see if you wanted some sort of guarantee that it would work before signing a contract. Essentially you agreed to pay them every month for two years with no idea of the service you're paying for.
36- #1 was suggesting OP possibly could have checked online to see if the carrier had coverage in OP's area. Some carriers allow you to check online by entering your address. #1 was also suggesting if OP did not have this option, buddies with the same carrier could have went to OP's house to see if they had signal, BEFORE OP signed a new contract. Cheers.
Every provider has a 30 day period for you to return or exchange devices. They understand issues with cell phone reception and they'll even let you switch to a different phone if the one you chose doesn't work out for you. Also, if you tell them you will leave their service due to no reception at the house, they may offer a free booster. It is like a wireless router. You connect it to the computer and the internet and instant reception.
#33 There certainly are software defined radios out there, and I'm sure that you can find them in phones too (after all some GSM frequencies are near the GPS frequencies so it would make sense to make a chip that can speak both standards, afaik there is one from qualcom available, not sure though). Anyway, if the phone can't RECEIVE a good signal, the problem doesn't lie in the chip but the chip is too much shielded off of the signal. Software CAN'T solve this problem, a baseband update could fix a bad modulation of the signal and thus improve the overall quality of the received and demodulated signal, but than OP would write that reception sucks everywhere, not only at their home.
Orange for our house. It's a black spot. Cross the road and you get a weak signal though. Seriously, though, you can check in-store wether you get signal or not, and it's good to your postcode (so it wouldn't show the Orange blackspot, but it will show that Orange is poor around our house.)
133, Even without knowing of Orange it doesn't take a genius to figure out what is being said. The poor grammar doesn't help but it is still very easy to comprehend. Something tells me from the number of thumbs up and down on the respective comments there are a lot of people down voting because they don't understand what's going on. What a bunch of idiots.
There's a 30 day trial period. You deserved this for not reading your contract! Return the phone and switch providers
call your service provider and ask them how to update your phone so you can hit more towers and get a stronger signal.
