Fix­ing poor mo­bile sig­nal

Mac Format - - APPLETALK -

I was read­ing a let­ter from a per­son with poor cov­er­age in Cheshire, and you rec­om­mended Skype. How­ever, there are a few op­tions that are free. For ex­am­ple, Three have launched an app that routes both your in­com­ing and out­go­ing cell calls via your Wi-Fi. It still uses your tar­iff, but im­proves cov­er­age, or in the case of Three, makes it ex­ist. And, un­like Skype, you can an­swer and hang up on calls us­ing a Blue­tooth head­set, some­thing that on iOS you can­not do. Voda­fone have a home box, as well. Skype as an app is pretty heavy on re­sources, whereas other apps, say Viber, are light­weight. Richard Don­nelly Three’s inTouch app wasn’t avail­able when I wrote my orig­i­nal an­swer for Peter Mer­chant in MF276, but it does seem like a bet­ter so­lu­tion. Three won’t charge you for the 0.7MB of data that’s used for each minute of talk­ing, but it does count against the or­di­nary call min­utes of your phone tar­iff.
