Is there a problem with reception in Oxford city centre? I go in on my lunchbreak every day and i get no service the entire time i'm there. On my way back to work, when i'm out of the centre of town, the signal returns.
The same thing happens on the weekends when town is very busy and can last a few hours.
Could this be sorted out? It's been going on for a few months now (i guess as the weather has gotten warmer and town gets busier).

According to the network status page EE has recently fixed a problem in Oxford City Centre.
Have you tried turning your phone off and on again?
It could be that it is congested as tourist season is coming back again and I know for a fact that Oxford City Centre is rammed full of tourist.

It definitely seems worse when town is busiest and i have tried restarting my phone with no success unfortunately. It just seems like the network is overloaded which means i can be without service for up to 3 hours. Later in the day it's always better.

Thanks. I have checked the Network Status Checker a number of times and generally it says the service is good or a problem has just been fixed.....but in reality, the problem is still evident when i go into town every day.

Thanks for confirming this @mhrg101.
Please try move to 3G and see if this improves, you can do this by following these steps:
Settings > Connections > Mobile networks > Network mode > WCDMA/GSM.
