Cellphone Signal Booster

#1

Post by Bell 407 » Tue Nov 24, 2015 2:16 pm

OK, so today I am officially urinated off. I have such bad signal reception in my office that my iPhone oscilates between No Signal to Vodacom Only to 3G then off again. It is just pathetic and is driving me crazy as I can't run Whatsapp properly as the damned round and round icon thingy just KEEPS ON GOING ROUND AND ROUND.

So, are there any solutiosn that I can install inside my office that will boost cellphone signal?

I am so frustrated because my colleagues not more than 5m away have full signal :nono:

It's not the phone, it's the network, especially Vodacom. Apple updates the software to improve things constantly but service providers don't upgrade their network. I had it the other day that I had "no service" in my house and I stay 500 meters away from the cellphone tower. Had to manually select network, select Vodascum and than select automatic again.

They really used to stuff it up by sending these sms's which says do not delete this sms, bla bla bla....That was their way of updating :thinking:

That's one of the reasons I ditched Vodakrom.
