Not sure what you are referring to..

I have no connection   ( ? )

Waiting for native speakers to show up, you īll get your answer.

Hi there, it depends on what you are talking about. If you are using a cellphone and can īt connect then you would say "There is no reception".  If you want to use free wireless internet for example but cannot find it you would say "There is no connection/ There is no access."

communication problems: You īre breaking up, we īre cut off somehow, there īs lot īs of interference on this line, there īs a lot of noise on the line so it isn īt very clear

hung up and call back, ok? I īm kidding :)

If you are talking about a mobile phone, I would agree that "signal" is the best option:  I haven īt got a signal / I have no signal / I can īt get a signal.

In Australia, if there is no network coverage, then we generally say "there īs no reception".  Cheers. Hug

@ranclaude... In the U.S. if there is no reception we say "Those *&%[email protected]*** why the &*% are we paying so *&%&*$#* much and not getting any *&%$%*& service?" Hope this helps.   Wink Ed
