What phone does she have? Phones can massively affect the signal you get.
That said EE doesn't seem the ideal option which I find strange as they have more masts than O2 and 99% 3G coverage which is the most 3G coverage of all the networks.
I use O2 and EE phones side by side now for business and leisure.
When out in rural areas my work always has to ring me on my ee phone as my O2 work phone doesn't have coverage...
That said every area is different.
I must say though that O2 does get to strange places better such as in basement flats or even into parts of London Underground. That said my O2 signal is very often gprs or E. EE doesn't get to these kinds of places.
If you are attached to O2 I would still shop around as £14 is steep for such a limited contract. For £17 you could get a better contract with a galaxy s3 thrown in...
I just checked my O2 phone has full signal but it's only GPRS. My EE phone has only 2 bars but it's 4G.
Turning 4G off I have 3 out of 5 bars of 3G
Using a 2G only pay and go orange handset it has full GPRS.
So it looks like the ee signals worse here but it's only worse as it's on 4g not gprs...
Perhaps the wife's got 3G when you have gprs? That would usually show lower signal but doesn't mean a full gprs signal isn't there waiting. If you get me.
