Many years ago i was with orange and the signal was great, once it changed to ee the signal dissapeared, my whole family used to be on ee both parents my brother son daughter and my wife, now my father son and wife have left for other providers and now have a signal.
This is my elderly parents house im talking about and its not in the back water or out in the sticks its in Glasgow and we cant get calls or 4g inside or outside, as i only visited once or twice a week i never bothered but now they are in there late 80s im there more often and stay with them a few days a week.
I have complained twice about the coverage to be told everything is ok no faults, did they come stand outside the house or even visit the area and try using there own network to make calls i dont think so the whole area is bad but only for ee, orange was far better.
I have been with ee for a long time but they just aint that good the coverage checker has outdoor only but we cant even get that, maybe its time for a change of providers

Its your choice as a consumer to change networks, but it would be prudent to choose the mobile carrier which best meets your needs.
Assume you cannot use EE vowifi service?
Have you checked your local network for issues here?

@Maverick1888 If your son gets a signal then so should you. Have you tried clearing the SIM card ? Use a damp cloth but make sure it’s dry before you put it back in the device.
