Samsung S5 poor reception

I just upgraded from an S4 mini to an S5, and noticed a dramatic drop in reception. It was never good to start with, but I'm thinking I might have to switch back to Spark. I'm almost getting no bars whatsoever and I can't receive or make calls. 

Is there any way to boost the signal, without being a Vodafone broadband customer? I only have a prepay phone through them.

I can't say that I've used either phone, but try fiddling around with your settings. See if you can switch the network type to GSM/LTE .etc.

It was already on LTE but I switched to 2G/3G to see if it would solve the problem. So far, no change.
