Either a) my iPhone is faulty b) the whole model has issues c) Vodafone is useless. I assume it's a bit of all three, but Vodafone sold me the phone and Vodafone run the network so it lies with them to make the two work. Sort it out! It's actually appalling.
But I don't have the time to lodge faults every time I have an issue because I have bigger problems to deal with. Like a new one...one of my customers got an iPhone, the store offered to put it on his wife's account then switch the numbers because he was going to be hit with huge ETCs. This was a few weeks ago, the day he went overseas...now he's back he's called me to say that his calls are going out as her number. She has no service at all. And the iPhone data is activated, but his SIM now has his wife's number. And guess what....no Vodafone CSR wants to/can help. Will have to try the store tomorrow morning but this is just disgusting. It's lucky she doesn't rely on her phone, being pregnant and not having a land line.
Nice one Vodafone, you've outdone yourselves once again!
Oh yeah. And he has crappy reception too.
