- Advice on getting out of a Mobile Phone Contract
Flash the stock Orange ROM to it, then allow it to perform any updates necessary. Should restore Signal Boost.
Or buy a Signal Box (wonderful thing, even if it does mean I’m paying for Orange’s network architecture).Posted 4 years agojoemarshallMember
You can re-flash the firmware to make it an Orange one with UMA
or if you root it, you can stick this onto your existing firmware:Posted 4 years ago
All good suggestions.
Thought about cheap PAYG but trying to avoid carrying two phonesFlashing ROm would be ideal, never done anything like that before, is it tricky?
MR is voluntary.
Would consider buying a signal booster, any particualr one that you reconmend? Cost may be a factor though
Buying out of contract may be a winner, will look into thatPosted 4 years ago
I’d argue that the insurance replacement wasn’t of the same spec as the one it is replacing as you cannout use UMA.
tried that, they offer only the best match. They cannot provide Orange phones, unbranded S2 is seen as a suitable replacement as they couldn’t give me an orange one even if they wanted to.Posted 4 years ago
Hive mind help needed, please.
I am with Orange, have been for many years. I moved home a while ago and since then have no signal at all at home. Absolutely nothing, despite their coverage map suggesting that I should get 3g.
This hasn’t been a problem as I had Galaxy s2 which uses UMA Signal Boost to connect to network via wifi. Unfortunately my phone was stolen last week and has now been replaced by insurance, but as my insurance is not with Orange they have sent me a unbranded S2, which means no signal boost, therefore no signal.
Nothing insurance company will do, and only option from orange is an early upgrade but will cost me £200! I want to jump ship to Vodafone who have better signal but still have one year left on my contract. Orange have suggested that they will hold me to contract.
As a foot note, I need signal at home to be messaged for Mountain rescue callouts.
Any thoughts?Posted 4 years ago
