Everyone in my team are expirencing loss of the vodafone network both 2g and 3g.
I turned my phone off and now get access denied when manually trying to connect to the network and the others are saying coverage is coming and going.

Same issue here... WGTN CBD, no 3G or 2G.  If I ring my phone from a landline it goes straight to voicemail.

Restarted phone and still no go.

Hmmm.... not sure if it's anything to do with this, but a text I sent from XT to VF was delayed about an hour earlier this afternoon...
(to/from Wellington CBD/Te Aro)

You guys complain too much apparently (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/technology/news/article.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=10631583):


Vodafone spokesman Paul Brislen said there had been no network outage, just a lot of pressure on the network from growing data usage.

"At certain times of the day there's a lot of congestion ... What
happens in Wellington is they come out of a meeting and all switch on their iPhones at the same time and find it's congested."

A discussion started on website Geekzone's forums yesterday detailing problems.

People wrote on the site that they could not connect in Wellington CBD even after turning their phones off and on.

But Mr Brislen said Geekzone discussions could overstate problems. "They get a bit carried away," he said.

Just out of interest - where were you in Wellington when you were having the problems?

I knew it was a bad idea for the Wellington City Council to mandate that the entire city starts and ends meetings at the same time.

That excuse smells of BS to me. Who is 'they'? Do 'they' not have meetings in other cities, like Auckland? Why are 'they' all ending meetings at the same time? And has no-one in this group of 'they' heard of silent mode.. why are they all turning their phones off in meeting?

Reality is this is an excuse. Not everyone ends their meetings at the same time in town and the network should cope with a few mobile phones entering/leaving their coverage and being turned on and off.

Sbiddle tells me that currently Vodafone voice connections are being forced down to GSM on many CBD sites to preserve 3G bandwidth for data. Perhaps your handsets are having problems with that?

The dropping to 2g when making a call has been a long ongoing problem on vodafone if you dont have a handset that can be set to UMTS only. Hardly anything new.

HSBC Tower Lambton Quay, I don't think an issue lasting at least 30min is caused by a group of people coming out of meetings and turning their phone on.

It may not be not "a problem" as such.
Perhaps instead, think of it as a way to manage voice traffic in a way that doesnt impact on the end user - but provides more effective headroom for those who might need it. i.e. Data users on 3G.

Just a thought...
