There was a problem with the antenna on the early 4's that caused calls to drop and this problem can be overcome with a bumper fitted to the phone.
Also some phone cases cause problems in shielding the antenna causing the signal to be partially interupted.
For my myself I have a 4 and have not had any problems with either the signal or Internet speds. Is your problem confined to a specific are or does it occur wherever you are. 3G can be very patchy outside of the main connubations, what signal do you get in a heavily populated area?

Is this just an issue at your workplace, or does it happen everywhere?
If it is limited to one location, can you confirm the postcode for me so we can investigate?
Also, can you confirm if this happens with 2G and 3G, affects anyone else at the same location and when this started happening?

As requested by Dave, please can you let us know the effected postcode so that we can see which site you are connecting to, once we have this we will be able to give more details on what is happening in that area for you.
In the meantime I would take a look at our faults board for the latest known site outages.

Thanks for your reply. I can see that the serving cell site ID for the postcode area is 3489. There are no known faults or planned maintenance at this particular site.
However, there is a known fault with 3G/HSDPA service at cell site ID 10899 and this has been raised under case reference 2399105 and this site also serves the local area. Therefore this may be having an impact on data services due to the increased traffic flow and bandwidth used on other sites including 3489. You can find more information on this here.
If you're having difficulty in areas other than this one particular location please let us know.

If you’re having problems all over then it could quite possibly be a problem with your phone. Although your partner and your handsets are the same model, they are not exactly the same. Faults can occur on one handset and the other handset can be fine.
I would suggest sending your phone away for repair to have this looked at.
To find out what you need to do in order to get this sorted take a look at our Vodafone Repairs Thread. This can be found here.
