We had virtually no signal in the house on any network.....Use UMA on both the Blackberry phones and my wife (solicitor on call phone) also recently changed her work handset to an HTC android thing which also has it. As Dave said, doesn't seem to be well publicised

It's not much of a nuisance, I'll grin and bear it at 400.

You must know how difficult it is to get real mates. Are you still buggering around with gearboxes in the same place? I'll come over and see you

I live on the west coast of Scotland and am well served by Orange. Many come to stay with other companies are less well served. A son lives near New Luce and once he is home, only a landline will do it. As you travel up to the high moor, all is well, till you drop into the basin where ALL radio dies-especialy digital. Bog standard liand line is the only way.....should he chose to answere. Oldun.

Age gives a greater opportunity to ASK an awefull lot of ouestions.

for 30 from vodafone shop, plugs in to router, now have flat out 3G signal in house and up the garden 60' long. it is cheap reliable and you can add other mobile numbers to it. As far as i am aware it is only available for Voda network, my significant other is on o2 and they certainly did not do a booster box, but for me it is spot on and very reliable.
Well off the back of this .. I bought one now 48.00 off Amazon, through Vodaphones shop, and is does what it says on the tin .. Full 3G all over the Bigmuz7 ponderosa .. I didnt want to get a wifi router, but the current Mrs Bigmuz7 couldnt surf with her iPhone 4 .. but now we have no dropped voice calls and my sky news app can be view after I've suggled under the duvet and all the vids from the news clips are now playable

I'm wondering the same thing Peter as there is a very cheap sim card supplier down here in Spain but they use the orange network. I can't get an orange signal in my house here but my wife's phone gets one solitary bar on her phone so I am thinking of a booster too.

Ive also got a Vodafone Sure signal box. When I bought mine 3 years ago it was 150 but it is worth every single penny. You can easily add all your family members and any visitors you have so that everyone can get a full 3G signal.

Its a pity it only works for Vodafone users, who you have to register with the box/vodafone first
