I sit in the North stand on the halfway line about halfway back.
My iPhone is on the Orange network but I always struggle once inside the ground to get a strong enough 3G signal to get the Sky Sports app to work.
Is it my poo phone or do other fans have same problem?

My texts never go through and can never get on Internet!

Must be cause there is so many phones being used at the same time.

its because of the sheer volume of people on their phones at the same time, plus the skysports app is rubbish.

I sit a few rows in front of you, and am on O2. Tends to be okay in the first half, but not afterwards when everyone is checking the piggies against whomever.

I reckon it's more contention than anything else.

Don't even go there :mad: , I've got a Blackberry Bold with Vodafone and every home match it nearly ends up on the pitch at half time trying to get scores from either the Skysports app or BBC website, I'm on the South by the way

Sit in almost exactly the same spot (but Row 13). My iPhone on O2 reckons it has full 3G reception but rarely connects to any scores apps. Just about manage to get enough for live betting.

Was on Vodafone and could get nothing.

Moved to O2 and it sometimes works, but not very often.

I sit on the kop.

It's the high volume of phones all trying use services from the local mobile cell/mast at the same time. And I'm sure the big concrete and metal structure of the stadium doesnt help!
