Reception has been playing up since v21 update

The reception is going up and down (and totally out) randomly at times. Anyone have the same problem ?

Although I am on o2 in the uk, I had the same behaviour using a different network in the Netherlands so am sure its something to do with the phone.

Thanks

It's difficult to tell. You've already eliminated the possibility of it being your provider since you've tried a different network in a different country.

The best way really is to backup all your phone stuff on your PC and re-flash it, see if the problem returns.

I've been backing up, updating and restoring the abackup for a while now. Think I might back, reflash and enter the phone numbers etc manually to make sure its TOTALLY fresh

Restoring a backup is ok in my experience, so long as the phone settings aren't restored. Stuff like contacts, calendar entries, images/videos and messages are all ok.

did some research and found that I was only in GSM mode in the phone settings in tools. The reception shot up from 1 bar to max as soon as I did that.

Think its all good now !!

No problems here (GSM only mode forced to avoid excess battery usage)
