We get no signal here with either Vodafone or 02. Looking at your first paragraph how do we enable this on an iPhone? We do use WhatsApp at home and that seems to work as we bring in Wi-fi via satellite. Thanks.If you have a modern Smart Phone and your network supports it (most do, but some MVNO's who are rebranded resellers for networks, eg Plus Net who use EE, don't facilitate it it) the easiest way would be to simply enable WiFi calling.
Simply put, your phone handsets routes your incoming and outgoing calls via your own number via your home broadband (or any WiFi connection where you don't have cellular) and you are not aware of any difference except for the little 'WiFi calling' icon showing on the handset.
This is phasing out the femtocell (eg Vodafone Suresignal) which basically did the same thing via a plugin box.
The only other way would be to purchase a Cel-Fi which is a £500+ phone booster, legal only because it allows itself to be controlled by the network. Any other phone 'booter' that both receives and re-broadcasts on the same frequency would not be legal for use in the UK.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for that. It’s not actually satellite broadband I don’t think. I have a small dish about 8 inches in diameter that brings it in from a repeater 2 miles away then another repeater 8 miles away, etc but where it actually comes from I don’t have a clue.
Why would you come on a motorhome forum to ask how to improve your mobile signal at home?

One thing for sure if she don't pay her subscription she won't be getting anymoreChris is getting neurotic in his old age, he'll be having a go at cross channel freebies next.
Hello Addie, I'm very interested in your comments re routing phone via wifi. We have friends who have virtualy no mobile signal where they are but good broadband.
Using Android phones, any links or help would be good. Thanks
Simply because there are a lot of people here whose common denominator is motor homes.That doesn't mean they are not knowledgeable of things other than motor homes of which they are happy to impart their knowledge.
