If you're missing calls and texts at a particular location or data speeds are slow, it's possible there's an issue with signal strength.
Check the current status of the network at your postcode, here: https://status.o2.co.uk/
If no faults are showing on the network and / or the problem occurs at more than one location, outdoors, there might be a fault with your phone itself or your SIM card. Here's how to check:
- Does anyone else in the same location on the O2 network have the same problem? if they do, there's a signal issue.
- If you're indoors, check your signal strength outdoors. Indoor signal can be affected by the building, trees and even the weather.
- Switch your phone off and on and after switching off, remove and reinsert your SIM.
- Still no improvement? Try your SIM card in an unlocked phone or the phone of another plan.com user. If signal reception improves, your handset could be defective. Contact your supplier.
