I'm travelling through Waikato around Whangamata / Thames. Try to make a voice call:

"We are sorry. Your call did not go through. Please try again later".

Same for an hour approx. Data is good tho! : ).

I'm not really here to complain just enquiring.

I assume it is a kind of overload or capacity problem but my recollection is a different message for that. So maybe a generic failure message.

Anyway, feel free to advise ; ).

Hmm. Mobile to mobile is OK. Maybe something up with the local (07) number I called..

If you are getting that message then B party side

A party side calling issue would normally show ' call failed ' on mobile

Just tried another Thames number and that worked so something with the number. Weird message. Actually I just remembered this guy is on Orcon so maybe this is related to the different message.

Is that the planet in the Terres Vulpes system?  Well, no wonder you couldn't connect from Thames. wink
