What phones are available with external antenna port

I have poor to no network reception and I’m looking for a phone I can plug an external antenna into
Any ideas?
Thanks Lloyd

Nearly all phones use an inductive antenna connector now. I can't think of one that has a plug in type port these days.

Hi Jupiter
Thanks for your reply, I’m hesitant to use an inductive cradle as I have heard very mixed reports about them, ranging from no improvement to actually having signal reduction when put into the cradle

You need to get a good quality one that is matched to the phone, otherwise they can be ineffective. The choice of antenna makes a big difference, too.
