I thought my iPhone was faulty but when I changed for a VF sim it worked. Then I called Customer Service who tells me that most of the XT network is down?

I'm surprised that if the network has been down since lunchtime today that there isn't already a thread about this? Or is it only certain geographical areas?

Was out with a mate today on the bikes and he had to use my phone as his XT Nokia E71 had no coverage

I thought it was just a cell outage where we were on Hobsonville Road on North Shore

I have been using XT on my handset and on USB modem, since 8am in Auckland around the Tech.Ed and had no problems.

Regional fault... no wonder I had no problems with using XT in the car on the way up to Auckland.

Aparently not all sorted.... Intermittent issues over the last two weeks on my XT phone, i called Telecom tonight and guess what they place the blame on yesterdays outage and advise "They need to visit the Solway, Masterton cellsite and fix it..." Sounds like rubbish to me as the phone does it all over this region and i know for a fact that cellsite doesnt cover the whole region.... Phone works fine with my VF or 2D sim in it.... Shame on Telecom's lies and failure to address a long term network issue.
