    Welcome to Android Central! Is it the same if you use speakerphone or a wired/Bluetooth headset?

    How many bars do you have? Does it happen everywhere or just at your house?

    Where I live, Sprint drops calls or its no service while att has decent coverage. Maybe you're just too far from your carriers antenna. They usually have a webpage showing coverage circles. You may be at the edge. You could use VOIP with your phone provided you have internet access at your home.

    See this link: https://support.vodafone.co.uk/Using...ter-signal.htm. It looks like the signal booster costs 69 pounds, but if you talk to Vodafone customer support, maybe they can discount it for you.

    The first thing you do when deciding on which carrier to choose is check the signal strength in all the places you're going to need a phone. Evidently you didn't do that. You probably need another carrier.
