hi, so my house just happens to be in the middle of a coverage dead spot, where my phone quite frequently loses coverage completely and i miss calls and texts.
Last night when I couldn't get onto 2degrees' network i tried to connect to the Vodafone tower, which i actually have line of sight too, by bunnings in shirley. Of course that tower is locked out by 2degrees for roaming.
I was wondering if either 2degrees would unlock this tower to fill the coverage dead patch or co locate on either the telecom or Vodafone tower witch i have line of sight to.
I realise 2degrees is a budget phone company but it would be nice to have coverage in my own home :)
It's interesting to note Vodafone roaming still works in Tauranga and it's been months since its become a broadband zone. But it's not very often my phone even selects Vodafone, as the signal in most places around Tauranga is a lot stronger from the 2degrees towers.You can lock your phone onto Vodafone and it will work(not that you would want to!)
