The same thing happened to me. My sim’s mother just died and she is really saddened by it. So, I’ve been trying to call the sadness hotline only to get the Bad Reception moodlet.

@YazPlatt Yes, I was coming in today specifically for this issue. Saw it last night in my gameplay (vanilla game). I double-checked to made sure I didn't have the OTG trait on the lot, but it's not there. Just an angry moment because of "the phone won't work off the grid". ~shrugs~

So, someone had the idea to create cellphone off the grid ( please explain how it works...for real ) but not to implement a cellphone that is on the grid, really you put so munch effort in creating even the stats on things that goes on the bill, but forgot the phone, i'm lucky that my sim is not an influencer XD. One last thing, i was creating a little underground bar, and with so munch disappontend there is no pinball machine T.T ( or flipper)

What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use a cell phone while on a lot that isn't off grid
What happens when the bug occurs? Negative mood where it says the cell phone reception is poor because you're using it on a lot that is off grid
What do you expect to see? No negative mood at all. It should only show on a lot that is off grid and my lots are not off grid

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes

While using a cell phone on a lot that is not off grid I get the negative mood where it's telling me the reception is bad because I am off grid. I also get the positive mood afterwards where it says having poor reception was a problem at first but is now liberating.

Moodlets Incorrect?

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1210
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get Famous, Parenthood, and Dine Out
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the game, do different interactions, eg. call someone on the phone
What happens when the bug occurs? A moodlet such as the the 'Call dropped from off-the-grid lot trait' appears even when the lot is on the grid, and I have seen other strange moodlets that are confusing.
What do you expect to see? The moodlets fixed.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I was playing with my famous Sim and she called a friend, and she got this moodlet. I've noticed some other odd things with my Sims, like that one of my good Sims was sad because of an evil Sim, but she wasn't near anyone but the household, and no one in the household had the evil trait.

It's also happens the same with pranks and fake sick calls as well. No matter if a prank or the fake sick call was a success or not.

 

Please note that the left confident moodlet had nothing do with the off-grid-moodlets. She got it from a successful prank call.

Same exact problem here over two weeks later. Haven't found a fix yet, so I think it's just the game that's broken and we'll have to wait for yet another patch. Did they seriously not bug test the June 3rd update?
