i too have experienced loss of strenght of signal regularly over the last month. i have been with T mobile for some yrs now. when they merged with Orange it was brilliant and i had signal pretty much everywhere and it improved vastly. i was v pleased about that. however now i have read through the reason behind why there are currently problems due to the cutbacks and merges taking place this does answer the question! i hope it all gets sorted out sooner rather than later, it is very annoying. everyone is reliant on their mobile phones now and expect signals to be decent the majority of the time.
