Three Mobile Phone Reception Yeovil

I have been with Three since March this year, using the phones (3g) in Yeovil (When signal quality has allowed).

My experience has been that the Three Mobile, (3 Mobile) network coverage in the Yeovil area is poor. I have had 2 x INQ1 phones which I have been advised work as well as any other model, time will tell as I am now using a different model.

My other phones are on O2 (Tesco PAYG Mobile) and Vodafone and have never lost a signal in the Yeovil area or as I have travelled around unlike Three.

I have called Three customer services numerous times and have found the process frustrating and costly in time (need to have your mobile on the charger).

I have been looking for reviews on the Three Mobile Network, I have listed some below:-

Three's own map of coverage in yeovil shows that your phone may only work outside

Three have actually admitted that the reception on INQ1 phones is not as good as it ought to be (this cause the phone to work harder and discharge the battery). INQ are bringing out a new version of the INQ phone some time soon.

Finding windows Keys on your system

I have repaired a few pc's where the XP key has been damaged on the case, Jelly Bean keyfinder returns a list of software keys.

Imaging Disk on Compaq nx 6310 LAptop

Needed to upgrade the hardisk from 40gb to 160gb, used Symantec Ghost to image the old disk to the new with the -ID switch to copy all partitions bootblocks etc.
The laptop would not boot to the xp partition, it would boot to recovery partition OK.

Used Bootit NG to re jig the boot partitions, laptop now boots fine. Nifty bit of software.

The new disk now has the old partitions, and 120gb of space for a new partition.
