Re: Issue with network dropping

Just checked XPERIFIRM. They have the EE ROM. Will get brave and flash it on my O2 device tonight ..

Re: Issue with network dropping

Cool think I'll do the same assuming flashing an official EE ROM won't lock it strictly to EE.

Just make sure you enable USB debugging to allow more recovery options encase something goes wrong so you don't end up with a £850 brick Slightly smiling Face

Re: Issue with network dropping

I've never dared do this before, but it sounds like flashing the ROM to the official EE setup may be necessary anyway to get full functionality on the EE network. Please can you two let us know how you get on?

I have absolutely no idea about this. How you do that? Is it risky? Is there a page I can read more? Can Anyone tried that let us know if it worked or not?

Re: Issue with network dropping

It's a fairly simple procedure using Xperifirm and the official Sony flasher software, it's the settings part that some people can mess up with,so if you have never done it before it's best to wait for when your device finally shows the update available

Re: Issue with network dropping

Sounds like a similar procedure to ROOT your device. I'd personally wait for update I don't know why they haven't released to all yet but since I've updated there hasn't been any issues. Tested speed on Netflix speed test I'm getting 72+ Mbps

Re: Issue with network dropping

OMG,I just found out that solving the problem of poor signal only needs to put your phone face downRolling on the Floor laughing,No matter how high was. Try to start downloading an app and watch the download speed and signal bar,Then put the phone face down   the download speed up 10time more and signal bar speed increase to full. Can anyone tell me what happened? Is this the angle of the signal antenna?

Re: Issue with network dropping

After a long chat with EE it seems my phone favours my nearest cell tower, this makes sense as closest means best signal strength. They said that tower does have an issue they are trying to sort out. the fault has been known about since 30th may, or the day I picked up my X1.

 

As soon as I leave that cell tower my signal is fine, no dropouts. 

 

I have tried a new SIM card from EE. Made no difference. I went to carphone warehousw today and they gave me a new phone. The moment I get home and phone picks up the tower near me with the errors, the signal drops.

 

It's weird as my old phone on same SIM and same tower is ok. Must be some weird compatibility thing here.

Re: Issue with network dropping

Think yours must be a different issue,as the one we are talking about happens all over the country.
