Ok i've had enough of this so i'm gonna see if anyone has the same problems:

Lately (?last 2 weeks?) i've been sent TXTs (this FREE whocalled TXT ...) saying i've missed a call - but my phone was always turned on with full reception in urban christchurch!

 (this happens about 50% but then i dont get many calls - say a handful a week)

This morning something weirder happened i "missed a call" from a weird australian +6128507xxyy. ringing the number back was a "dead tone".


Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

yep i get the missed a call text and even text messages from voice mail saying someone left me a message 1 min before the text turns up (phone does not ring and sitting with full bars).
I just think its vodafone trying to make money out of people (the money from the person calling and the 20 cents to call voice mail to get the message).

But think its more to do with the phones going from 3g to 2g and all over the different networks that vodafone have, its like their system cant keep up.
