HybridE506r: Theres good reason to be concerned about what coverage is available. In the event of a power cut,
landline phones relying upon 230v power may not work - and if theres an emergency a cell phone is next to useless if it has no coverage
In the early hours of this morning i had a colapse, this time thankfully not serious. H ad i needed help, vodafone would have been utterly useless waste of time due to lack of coverage
So today, i went and bought a cheap entry level TELECOM XT mobile phone and now i have full coverage instantly, it works :) i can now receive and make voice calls on mobile. Great !!
Last week i did contact vodafone via their website, but it doesnt seem theyre very interested in the customer, no response so far.
In a week, if i either have no better vodafone coverage nor hear from vodafone when their coverage will improve, i will go and tell all the people i know that where vodafone failed, the new Telecom XT network did work, from a safety viewpoint, its worth knowing. imho
Highly likely where you live has also CDMA coverage and has had for years.
