Vodafone Sure Signal

Sure Signal replacement

2: Seeker Bronze

I've been with you guys since the Summer of 2008 and just over a year later I got the Sure Signal. For the past fifteen years the signal has been horrendous (I'm talking on behalf of my Mother there). Without the Sure Signal we both have no service constantly which is such a shame. It's worked perfect for us but now the Sure Signal doesn't work as well as it used too. I don't want a repair as I can't have my phone for seven days with not one bar of signal, I wouldn't cope.

Is there any chance of being sent a new one to me, I'm in desperate need.

If you need any information regarding mobile, account number and Sure Signal details, I will happily provide.

I look forward to your reply.

Kind Regards,

Christopher Beugel

Hi Andy,

 

I have tried resetting but the signal keeps going down.

 

We have just had a new Virgin Media Super Hub fitted and I only get around 1-2 bars at the max and I get 'Call Failed' a lot.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Can you go through this guide?

 

It tells you exactly what to check and what to do in the instance of it not fixing your issue.

 

Thanks

Hi Beugel1987

 

Thank you for providing the information requested.

 

Everything looks fine from the results and it is connecting to our servers as it should, have you noticed the difference after using the new Virgin Media Super Hub?

 

I do not think a new device would change this, however so we can be sure please can you try the Sure Signal at a different location and let us know if you are still experiencing the same issues.

 

Many Thanks

Hello Dave,

 

that's great news about everything being good at your end. However, I still have issues at home and I also tried it in another family home but still no luck.

 

I can't even use the phone to make calls and even texts struggle to send due to having no service on my phone.

 

Thanks so much
