    Hi all

    At work I have a very weak 3G signal. I can get some sort of data throughout on my iPhone 6. However, when I plug my phone in to charge, despite still showing the same 1 bar of 3G signal, the data connection stops dead. The same thing used to happen with my 5S and 5 prior.

    I would expect plugging in the charger to boost the signal as surely the phone can devote more power to this?

    Does anyone know why plugging in the charger seems to reduce network connectivity?

    Many thanks.

    It doesn't for me.

    Signal strength has never reduced from charging my phone.
