Cell/mobile phone coverage In the UK and I know the same goes for the US too, but cell or mobile phone coverage isn’t good. I can go down the road and lose coverage and can’t take or make a call. I’m living in a city and not out in the middle of nowhere. You would think in this day and age cell/mobile phone coverage would be better than it is. I know my provider which is O2 says they cover 95% of the country, Not sure to where they are getting the figures from because I know several drop out spot just where I am. Do you find the same, you cell/mobile phone drop coverage?

AT&T wasn't good in Chico couldn't really make a call unless I was outside, sometime inside but not often.

@kevin1877uk really just depends on the area and the towers and stuff. I think they make signal boosters for inside, but dont know how well they work, could be your phone too

I have a hard time getting coverage when I'm up at my cabin in the mountains of Montana, USA. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere.

Out there I guess you would run into problems of no coverage.

I have a pay as you go plan and usually it's reliable, though they piggyback onto other carriers. It never works in Walmart, though. My kids have other providers and never have trouble getting a signal.
