Has anyone else noticed a severe decline in coverage since being swapped from Virgin Media to O2? I called my GP this morning and it was so bad I asked them to call me back on the landline. I did the coverage check and it says coverage is good but it is not, it's awful.

The coverage maps are just a computer predication based on perfect scenarios. 

 

There should be no difference, as you have been on o2's network for nearly a year, it might though be worth either popping into an o2 shop with photo ID and doing a sim swap or calling customer services on 202 or 0344 809 0202 and requesting a new sim card, as some of the VM sims are causing a few issues.

It should be exactly the same as Virgin has run on the O2 network for some months now.

Must say I don't trust O2 Belgian SIM cards to play nice and I would call into an O2 store with photo ID and get it changed

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.

@Dezshab Have you still got a Virgin SiM?

But probably irrelevant if you are moving
