NOKIA 6822 Poor SIGNAL performance ON O2 UK

Hi Guys
I have recently bought a couple of NOKIA 6822 phones (RM68 ) from Hong Kong.
I already have an RM69 and its a great phone. however when i used the new phones on O2 UK they arent as sensitive and the signal drops out frequently where my other phone is showing a good signal.
It would be too cost prohibitive to send them back so i was wondering if the problem could be that they need either a s/ware update or that the power level or receiver might be set too low for use on the O2 Network.
Anyone have a possible solution or similar experiences?
I went to the Nokia shop for technical advice and they didnt want to know as the phone was not on their warranty system .
One thing it has highlighted though is just how patchy the O2 network really is when you are using a phone which is a little under par.
Thanking you in anticipation

Hi ,

02 claim to cover over 98% of the uk with different levels of coverage, like most of the other networks.

As you say an alternative fone you have gives better coverage than the Nokia's you have invested in.

You could try visiting Nokia - Nokia on the Web and follow the links for the software updater, although Im not sure if your handset is supported.

If it is then you could apply a software update to see if this resolves the issue. A word of warning > ensure your handset is fully charged ,and that the data lead is sound as a break in this update can 'brick' your handset.

02 will not touch the handset as the warranty is covered where you purchased it from which although you can get the handsets cheaper this is one of the obvious downfalls.



Good luck
