    How is the call reception signal on the iPhone 4s, 5 and 5s? Is one iPhone model better than another for getting enough cell signal to make and receive calls?
    I am in a basement, so I need an iPhone with excellent call signal strength. I am currently on Public Mobile, which is basically Telus.
    I get great signal on my ancient blackberry bold, but I believe that newer phones do not have the same radio strength as older models did.
    I can't really afford to invest in a signal booster, so that isn't an option.

    I've owned each iPhone since the 4, and didn't notice a huge signal difference between all of them.

    As for your question in your other post, I would get the newest model that you can afford. The 5s would be the best choice obviously, but the 5 should be okay too. Personally, I would avoid the 4s. A friend of mine had one with iOS 8, and it didn't appear to be a very good mix.

    I have all of them as well and can not determine enough of a difference to be worth mentioning. However I am sure with each version of the phone they modify the radios just a bit to improve battery life etc, so the 5s would probably be the best.
