whenever I’m trying to use apps in my phone the Wi-Fi is perfectly fine I.e 4/full bar’s however the connection is consistently at 2 or 1 and never above that. I have already sent a request on the network app in which they repaired the tower which they said was faulty however it hasn’t helped. I have only just switched phones to a iPhone XR(since I was due a upgrade and hoped it would fix the problem) and other people who also use o2 on different phones within the same house don’t have the same problem even though we can both be standing together. I don’t use my phone much outside my house so I’m not sure if it would have the same problems but it’s bad enough where things don’t load and I either get sent double texts or the person I’m texting doesn’t receive them. Thanks for any assistance this has been driving me crazy for the last two years.
I'm afraid you need to blame either whoever built your house, or those pesky radio waves, that struggle to permeate walls just like all radio waves. (Its a little thing called Physics and the Laws of Physics).
There are options but YOU have to pay for them, these include external aerials, to boost signal internally in your own home, not a lot o2 can really do about them.
Or you just use Wifi Calling using your Broadband connection.
Coverage maps are just computer simulations using the same build types for all locations
Are you all using the same Make, Model, and production batch of phone?
As could be the antennae not using enough power to attract the radio waves to the device, How do you mean other things that would be affected aren't??
Including swapping SIM from a better phone into a worse one, if all are O2?
And hints for enabling WiFi calling here, with SMS over WiFi coming in the next few months, that should help: https://www.o2.co.uk/help/network-coverage-and-international/wifi-and-4g-calling
The other phones that don’t have the problem are o2 however my sim won’t fit into any phones that are accessible for me. It never worked on my old iPhone 6s+ And it still doesn’t on my Xr. I’ve tried everything that is offered on the website but nothing worked so I thought I’d ask on this since it was a very specific problem. The only thing the website recommended was to use the network app to complain which I already did but wouldn’t help anyways since they have just finished repairing a tower near me.
