A great pity that Google don't record this information about network signal strength when their cameras are driven around the country for their streetview cameras.

Re: can you get a mobile signal where you are going?

I'm in a very poor area for T-Mobile. Nigh on impossible to get a regular signal indoors but outside seems OK even though signal is still poor.
Orange indicates that the signal is excellent yet I've never yet seen my mobile switch to Orange when the T-mobile signal is so weak. non-existent as per T-Mobile's help.
When I set it to Orange manually I get the same issues as with T-Mobile Sad

Re: can you get a mobile signal where you are going?

I got a 3 dongle and couldn't really fault it. I had one of the early ones which you'd expect to be a bit iffy while they work out the bugs etc.. in truth its been very good and MiFi came out what... a year later?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
