These things can happen, unfortunately. May be a good time for you and your partner to work out a plan 'B' for her, in case it happens again.

thats true....but tell me...what is your plan B?... partner rang the police as being first "plan A"..i guess plan B was to ring me?...unfortunately..that didnt work due to net work issues...the neighbours were helpful interested in your "plan B"?

They do suggest that voip / mobile lines are not the best for emergency situations.

Or get a Telecom prepaid phone and leave it around home?
