Sporadic network dropping, anyone?

So, this has happened three times in the last week, and only started last week too

Apparently, late in the afternoon, although my phone has full bars, the network doesnt put through any calls to my phone for a few hours, and lags with text messages.

I never know about the calls until much later when i get yelled at for not being reachable, and the flood of texts suddenly come to me.

I have the S3. Anyone experiencing similar, or know what is going on or how to fix this?

I actually had sporadic network drops yesterday afternoon for about an hour. First time I've noticed dropping a network connection in a year or so.

Power cycle handset, if it's happening indoors. then test outside. Koodo don't guarantee indoor coverage, if dropped calls happen everywhere, it may be hardware related, if it happens only in one location call Tech support to find out why suddenly to get Sporadic network dropping

I'm in Toronto. Haven't experienced any dropped calls since, so it appears the problem was on Koodo's end and was temporary, for me at least.

I'm in Nova Scotia, and it is both inand outside calls. It just suddenly drops a call and tells me network is unavailable. I have had this SG3 for a year but this only started happening a month ago. It happens several times per week.

Had issues earlier today in London. Solved with resetting network settings (iPhone 5). No issues with HTC One.
