    I've only ever had that problem in one place. I've always had reception except the exact moment I step into one of my friends back garden and then nothing. Since I updated to the KH3 modem I now get reception but interent still doesnt work so atleast its a step in the right direction. I would suggest updating the modem if you havnt done so allready.

    You are on your 4th SGSII...!

    You are either the unluckiest SGSII owner alive or there is another, possibly external, problem.

    Just a few questions:-

    1) Is your phone rooted?

    2) What firmware are you running? (type *#1234# into the dial pad to get 4 lines of info)

    3) Are you using Juice Defender or a task killer on phone?

    4) Have you checked your APN settings are correct and the right one selected? (Settings > Wireless and network > Mobile networks > Access point names)

    5) Do you pick up your service provider on a manual search? (Settings > Wireless and network > Mobile networks > Network operators)

    I have to agree. 4 different phones, all defective, it over the top.

    Tell all about your phone.

    My impression is... well, read post#2. "Updating" the modem might be something of a misnomer. What he is saying is flash your modem. i.e it WILL void your warranty... but every other person in these forums seem to be doing it anyway.

    Well, that's one out of five questions answered... how about the other four?

    These sort of things help us to help you. :D

    yea i tried all of them, rang the network again and now they are pleading guilty to a mast down, so false alarm on a faulty phone ( i hope) thanks for your help guys!! :)

    Strange that you should be able to get a signal on the same network on broadband and also a signal on another phone with your sim card in it when the mast is down! :thinking:
