Giffgaff used O2 network. I am very disappointed with my cellular network inside my flat, every time my phone goes on voicemail due to no network indoor. Whenever I use my phone, I have to stand near the window to get a good reception , worst case scenario i have to go outside to use make calls. I tried using my phone outdoors which has no issues , nevertheless, the speed of my 3G internet speed is very slow, quite amazing I lived in a good network area. Previously I was on lebara mobile which uses Vodafone network, have a very good network whether indoor or outdoor. The speed of data on 3G network was splendidly very fast indoor and like a speedy launching rocket outside. Well, you pay what you get for,if you are looking for a corvett speedy network,then lebara Kobe is yours solutions.

Unfortunately none of this is an exact science. But one of the best features of giffgaff is that as it's a pay as you go network with no commitment you can change at any stage if it doesn't suit. Imagine if you'd signed up to a 2-year contract with EE or O2 and then found out you had poor service near your home?

Hi man, I have a similar problem, I've done provider, network and system checks and all say I live in a signal sweet spot. Indoors I very rarely have a G signal, and without WiFi I burn through my data allowance

You'll get told it's down to the materials your flat has been built with or you've got a crappie phone. I've tried all of the suggestions to no avail

I had this problem with EE.  No signal in the house... when I had missed an urgent call from my daughter a second time I changed networks to Giffgaff and now I have a great signal.  I guess it is all about finding out what network is best in your area.  At least you are not tied to gifffgaff... tired it, it's not the best go elsewhere

Good luck

It can happen...there may be some lead on roof which can play up with the signal.

if vodaphone works and O2 doesn't then you will have to go back to vodafone, gg can not magically make a reception black spot suddenly disappear, even in areas that have good coverage there will be black spots, and yes if buildings / walls are thick enough, or a weak signal is being received  then the phones radio waves will not be able to penetrate a building, that's why when standing next to a window your signal improves
