Incredibly Poor Mobile and Wi-Fi Reception
on August 10, 2013
If you do a little research online about the poor reception you will find it is endemic to when the phone is upgraded to Jelly Bean 4.2. Some firmware patch is needed but as of this writing there is no idication that it will be addressed..
When the phone searches for an LTE cell and doesn't find one it disconnects from the mobile network. The phone has to be rebooted to regain connection.
When it does get an LTE cell, every call was dropped. Every call and that is not hyperbole.
I had purchased this phone last year as a gift for my mother and it worked extremely well. This has been a disappointment.
