In fact, the Bold seems to be the poorest phone I have ever owned for holding a signal even on 2g as it drops connection regularly.
I am not on Orange but O2, I did have a similar problem, but SIM card was ancient
O2 advised I needed a 3G sim card and since then I get rock solid 3G even indoors and at work.
Suggest you ask Orange for a 3G card, mine was free from O2.
