Re: Barely any signal bars with in Ottawa

I thought it might be worthwhile for me to add I have the same phone, I just switched from Virgin to Public last night, and noted the exact same loss shown in the signal strength icon. (4+ bars on Virgin, 1 bar, maybe 2 on Public)

This was inside the house, my wife has the phone today, so don't know how she's found it while out and about.

 

In my bit of testing last night I didn't notice any problems with the lower signal strength, but did find it interesting.  Maybe something to do with the older phone. Not sure.

Interesting to say the least. Virgin is Bell and PM is Telus and they both share their towers so why would that be? Maybe resetting the phone to factory defaults and starting fresh would help?

Re: Barely any signal bars with in Ottawa

no I think Rogers has stronger signal inside buildings.
