Hey everyone. I don't know if this has been discussed already but I did search the crap out of google only to find, we'll, not much really...

The topic title says it all.. I am having major issues with terrible data reception resulting in unsent SMS and straight to voicemail calls. It is getting really annoying. I have tried everything.. Changed SIM card, Odin back to 4.3 stock, flashed random modems in hope they work...

The really annoying part is that it gets great reception in so local areas.. I went to the BELL store to whine about the problem and the darnn phone was getting 4 bars. Made me look like a fool.

My wife has an s3 with bell and while I get missed calls she gets great reception so it can't be the ISP ..

Is anyone else about to go nuts? Is anyone looking at possible tweaks around this? Thanks

IMHO Bell sucks.

Canadian providers just suck.

No seriously.

I have a Canadian Note 3, on Rogers. Occasionally I get only 3G, no signal, and little LTE.

Only in the most crowded places is there good signal, like downtown Toronto.

I agree my man.. But as i stated, my wife on her S3 gets great signal where i do not... So i think the problem is beyond Rogers/Bell ..

No, I also have terrible reception problems on mine. I'm in the US (T-Mobile). This phone has the worst reception and I basically don't get any bars in most buildings I go into (where I used to have full bars on my galaxy s2). For data, I only see "E" all the time and rarely see 4G, again in places where I used to always have excellent reception with my old galaxy S2.

Waiting to see if anyone has a tip or a fix for this. I can't return the phone because I bought it second hand.
