        Texts generally come through on iMessage if the other phone can send iMessage. It's more phone calls, I use wifi for data.

        Also this is with virgin, was just as crap with orange

          Smart phones usually by default will connect to the fastest mobile network available (or attempt to) where it's available.
          The faster network uses higher frequencies which are more prone to degradation than the slower networks most of the time. The more the distance / thicker the walls the more they suffer

          If you disable 3G in your phone when in the home, it will force it to connect to the 2G type signal instead which is generally a lot more stable for calls and texts (crap for mobile internet though). You could try this but apart from that, there's nothing else you can really do about it

              There's signal boosters you can get but I'm not so sure how well they work.

                I would strongly recommend against using them. They're illegal.

                    The one orange offered you wouldn't be a signal booster.
                    It connects to your broadband connection and your phone connects to it.
                    It uses the broadband connection to relay your calls and messages back and forth. They're fine and legal to use.

                    The signal boosters that you can get receive the weak mobile signal then boost it and you connect to the boosted signal. They're illegal because you're essentially turning your home into an unregistered and unregulated transmission station.

                        I had no idea about the illegal ones. Our network at work is Vodafone and I can't get a signal in house so work have Vodafone provided boosters. They must be of the internet type you mentioned.
