I have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 that used to be my partners and we have just given it to her younger sister to use. Her sister is on Vodafone and for some reason the phone gets no signal 90% of the time.
The phone is definitely unlocked as I have managed to get 1 bar of signal using her Vodafone signal and make a phone call and send a text.
What's strange is that my S4 i9505 on Vodafone gets 5 bars of signal in the same place that the N7000 barely gets one. Could this because of the older hardware in the N7000, or the older modem version on the N7000, or because it is currently running on Avatar ROM 4.2.2?
Just to clarify, I have never flashed the modem with Odin, I have only flashed ROMs via Philz Recovery.
