    Hi,

    So ive got a desire on virgin network, UK. Everything is fine apart from the fact that the internet just doesnt work when indoors, at home although there is network coverage. Now there is no problem with the settings because it does work sometimes but very very rarely.

    Outside, it works fine. Could the handset be faulty?

    Unlikely, just sounds like you don't have very good GPRS/3G/HSDPA inside. It's common.

    Can you not use your home wi-fi?

    Can you get something like this LINK

    It can't just be Vodafone doing them.

    There isn't a direct correlation between signal strength and mobile data access.

    For example in some places you could have 5 signal bars but struggle to connect with EDGE.
