Northolt- UB5 - no signal

I've had no signal in this area for the past 5 days. 'Maintenance issues' were apparently fixed on the 12th but I still can't phone / text / receive calls / use the internet. What's going on?

Re: Northolt - UB5

Hi

 

Looking at the Vodafone Network Checker I see that an issue has been recently resolved. 

 

It can take a few days occasionally for masts to settle sometimes. 

 

"We've fixed an issue in this area recently. Sorry if you noticed any disruption - things should have been back to normal since 12.53pm 14 Mar 2017"

Hi,

'Things should've have been back to normal since 12:53pm 14 March 2017''

Things aren't back to normal though and it's 2 days later. It's now been 5 days with no signal at home....

Hi @babychan

 

 

Currently Vodafone does not support voLTE which is the option to make calls over 4G. 

 

Calls are made over 2G and 3G. 

 

Hopefully in the near future the network will introduce that feature after whatever testing they'll need to do.

Re: Northolt - UB5

It's ridiculous! My brother lives 1/2 a mile away and he can't make calls either. Vodafone just keep fobbing me off and just tell me to post on here.

This is the 6th day there has been this issue!!!!

Re: Northolt - UB5

UB1 area - Calls do not connect since 17/03/17, incomming calls are notified as a missed call by a txt message, but the call never came through on my phone.

 

Tweeted Vodafone help on 18/03/17 was told there had been a problem and it had been resolved.

 

19/03/17 - still have the same problem and have managed to make/receive one call during the whole day otherwise all calls do not connect or receive txt msg to say incomming call missed.

Network checker is showing a big fat green tick on the map for UB1/UB5.

 

I can understand short drops in service but 3 days of this, very frustrating?! What if i only paid a couple of pence instead of my full amount when the next bill is due, is that acceptable?

Re: Northolt - UB5

I've had the problem for 8 days now Smiley Sad. According to the (useless) help team on Twitter, the problem should be fixed by the 21st. Considering it was supposedly fixed in the 14th, I won't hold my breath.

It's Shocking that we are paying for a service and not receiving what we signed up for.

Will be leaving my contract as soon as it is up, the poor customer service has pushed me over the edge. One 'technical expert' told me the problem was literally my house and that I should go outside to make calls. An absolute joke of a company.
