We have been having all sort of problems, my husbands mobile has been playing up, Optus can’t seem to fix it looks like a new phone on the cards, My mobile is not a happy chappie either, our Landline keeps dropping out most annoying when talking to someone, our computers are also playing up, Maybe its the weather? that’s what people tend to say when any complaints are aired about anything.
I have a mobile phone too just like almost everyone else, I bought it to take it with me incase of an emergency if I was away from home. Once i was about 5 kilometers from Strathalbyn and my car broke down. I tried to phone the raa, guess what, “no signal”
Yes that’s a major problem in country areas over here in the west as well. Every so often we hear how these dead spots are reducing but there are still many places even on major roads that will be many years away from being fixed. My daughter has twice lived on a property (once in Denbarker and once between Collie and Williams) where she had to go to a particular spot on that property to get any service – and very liable to drop out at any time. Hurray she has just moved to an area near Arthur River where she can even use her mobile in the house! (The place names will mean nothing to most Eastern Staters but they are all in the Great Southern WA and not out in WoopWoop!)
