Jolla and poor 3G signal

So my Jolla is giving gray hairs with 3G signal. Just barely stays in it while my N9 shows full signal with same sim-card. And before it was better with Jolla too. Is this common or just me.? And same with my other Jolla. Hope it is just some bug which will be fixed in future.

I'm having similar issues with my Jolla - compared to the N9. It does make sense though - when you compare the supported 3G/WCDMA frequencies of both devices:

Nokia N9 WCDMA: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1900 MHz, 1700 - 2100 MHz, 2100 MHz

Jolla WCDMA: 900/2100 MHz

Interesting... my experience is quite the opposite. I'm in the UK with the 3 network FWIW. n9uwu may have a point re supported frequencies.

Agreed - My previous phone (N9) had an almost full network signal, but my Jolla only shows around 50% signal. Calls and internet are okay, but slow compared to the N9.

full signal

Just to be clear, the signal level that phones show is mostly pointless.

True, but why it was better signal shown before.. Maybe it's just a bug..
