The signal where I now live is atrocious. I can't call without using wifi dialling, and I can almost never send or receive texts. Even if I go outside and wander around away from the building, texts still don't often come in. When I do receive them, it's usually hours or days after they were sent.
However, using O2's My Network app on my phone, it says that 2G and 3G should be good indoors and out at my location, and 4G should be okay outdoors.
The service checker tells me there's no problem with the network, and it's been like this since I moved in a month ago.
It's not an issue with my phone as it works fine in other locations.
Is there anything that can be done about this? I use 2-factor authentication on quite a few things that work by sending me a text with a code. As I can't receive tests, this is causing significant problems.
Any help or advice would be gratefully received.
In all honesty signal checkers are only a theoretical computer simulation.
The only real option you have is to switch networks when you can.
