cant make or receive calls, messages stalling

I live in the Daylesford area. For the past week and a half myself and my husband have both been having significant issues with making and receiving calls as well as sending sms's.


Specifically when we are at home near Mount Franklin, the phone shows as having 3 or 4 bars but I will receive a message saying there is a new voicemail. The phone isnt even ringing. 


When I attempt to ring out, it sometimes will work but often it will simply not even be able to dial. Also if I do receive a call people cannot hear me or the call drops out. When i drive from Mount Franklin into Daylesford the issue seems to reduce.


I have also spoken to a friend in Daylesford who is having the same issues. When my father was up on the weekend, he also had the same issue. Always the phone is showing 3 - 4 bars.


I am post paid, my husband is pre-paid. 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
