im seriously considering swapping my iPhone 13 pro for a Nokia 6310 so I can actually make reliable phone call

then having a smart phone or iPad mini with data sim for all the stuff i need a smart phone to do
Not just me that spends all day on the phone saying “hello? Hello can you hear me?” And ringing people back because the phone cut out then 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Its crazy, can be streaming a movie in 4K, move five yards and cannot make a phone call.

All the phone reviews from the Tech Youtubers not one of them considers the signal strength.

That’s not the fault of the handset but the network, and driven by the switch to shorter range signal which comes with 5G. Those of us living on parts of the country with 4G/3G aren’t seeing those issues yet, with the same devices.

Sums up the UK in general 🤦🏻🤦🏻!
What happened to the GREAT in Great Britain?????
It lost the ‘Great’ when the last Viceroy of India divided that country and gave it away to the natives. Nothing much to boast about since the demise of The British Empire.
Just you wait until Scotland gains independence and see how Little Britain runs from then on. It will be an even greater disaster than Brexit and Covid.

Had this trouble years ago and it turned out it was because of tree cutting required near the mast that was needed but impossible due to some bunny hugger. The phones would switch from mast to mast very quickly causing problems, the addition of k glass to the house didn't help either.

a switch of network helped as well as the free use of wifi calling which is great but means you can't always hold a call as you walk out of the house.
