Reasons for mobile signal problems

Your signal or reception can be affected by lots of things, including:

  • Being somewhere with thick walls and windows
  • Using an older device
  • More people using the network around you
  • Your distance from a signal mast
  • Being under thick tree cover
  • Bad weather

Use WiFi calling instead

WiFi calling lets you make and receive calls and texts using WiFi, without needing your mobile network.

To turn on WiFi calling, use our helpful guide to find out how it's done on your device.

    If you need help connecting to a WiFi connection, use our Connecting to a WiFi network guide.
