Is anyone having issues roaming at the moment with TNZ overseas? In SA at the moment, and suddenly I can't connect to any of the networks over here.

Does anyone know of any issues at the moment?

Hi

What type of phone are you using? If you have an iPhone try going to settings, phone, SIM Application, Manual, Sponsor. You'll need to do the reverse on your return.

Otherwise give the Roaming team a call.

My understanding is Telecom have suffered from degradation of their roaming service since yesterday morning. This is affecting all roaming traffic both inbound and outbound.

It's a known issue so best to save your time and wait for it to be resolved

Guys, a technical issues is (almost) acceptable but what is not acceptable is the appalling communication.  One post on the Telecom website at 11am and no update since.  Call the faults, recorded message - again from 11am.  That is 3 hours ago - at least have the courtesy to post something saying we are still working on the fault!  Steve

Agreed Skennedy, very glib and typically arrogant response from JohnR at vodafone, he isnt roaming trying to do business and say goodnight to his kids whilst waiting to get on another plane to go somewhere else we cant get access to voice and data.

Also Skennedy, one other thing, they only acknowledged the issue at 11:00am this morning, I was affected by this last night at 5:00pm NZT. 17 hours to even acknowledge the issue!!!!

If it's a known issue then sitting on the phone waiting for soneone to answer in a call centre is not going to add much value, Answer from the call centre will be it's a known issue and investigation is ongoing,

Fine sit on the phone and wait for them to answer, CSR will click on the magic button fix roaming

Johnr you missed the point we moved on from the callcenter discussion, and perhaps if you are representing Voda on this forum you might like to take a course in customer service 101.

I have provided support for all customers on Geekzone for all carriers in New Zealand where possible

Wow John, you are really confused now, perhaps a reading lesson before the custoemr service one.

Linearity at its finest. Please note the thread was started by a customer experiencing a failure in service, and the lack in response from Tcom. I am a customer too. But I guess its easy for Telecom and Voda to forget what customers are, just noisy annoying things really.

AS an aside still no response or ETA to resoluiton and its now 23 hours without roaming voice or data. all that has been posted is an apology.

I am sure TCNZ is doing everything possible to get the roaming issue resolved ASAP, Maybe they don't have a time frame yet as they are working with other vendors,

I knowing exactly what the issue is, and the fact it's been worked on since early yeserday morning when it first started occuring. If there was a simple fix it would have been fixed by now, but in this case there have been multiple attempts to resolve this issue which hasn't fully resolved it.

Not every issue can be fixed by pushing the reset button.

Roaming issues can be particularly complex to deal with, and in this case 2degrees are also being affect by the TNZI issues. As is the case at Christmas time when both were affected, it may be necessary for carriers to make significant changes to even switch to other links. SS7 isn't a simple thing to deal with, especially when you've got so much signalling involved.
