    For the second time, note the word "rely".

    You should never RELY on any radio system for emergency calling. VHF, UHF,
    AMPS, CDMA, GSM, or 3G or any other variants.

    Well that's EPIRBs ruled out for distress alerting then.

    Make that any /single/ radio system in isolation, and you're
    talking a bit more more sense. Ships for example, must be
    capable of 3 independent means of sending/receiving SOS
    messages - 2 approved "separate and independent" for ship to
    shore, plus at least 1 for ship to ship.

    And thats a business risk you have to accept, that your coverage may be
    unreliable and so may your phone be.

    My, what an offensive prick you are.

    I got a pre-paid SIM card for use in a spare phone for my mother in law while
    she's visiting (heaps cheaper than international roaming).

    Not everyone who buys a pre-paid is a druggie, pov, or whatever other label that
    you wish to support your bigotry with.

    But then you don't see us hanging **** on your types, do we.

    Oh wait, we do. Sorry.

    It was our idea, not hers. She thought that her phone would work here
    without it being set up for international roaming. We had to explain the
    process for this to work and what it would end up costing her. Cheaper to
    put $50 on the pre-paid, which we still have most of.

    For some people there is a method to their madness. Leaving it til the
    "last minute" means that there may also be "last minute" incentives to
    migrate across to NextG.

    Also, Telstra may be misreading their customers. They may not be leaving
    it til the last minute. They may be extracting the last second out of
    their contracts and may be considering a move to another provider. Optus
    for one is opening its own 3G network across Oz. It may have better deals
    to offer.

    Certainly, if I was still on CDMA I'd be doing this. Wait til the last
    minute, see what Telstra has to offer to encourage me to move to NextG, or
    wait to see what its competitors have to offer.

    The only reason why I'm on NextG now is that when my CDMA phone died it
    wasn't worth it to get another one. It was cheaper to get a new NextG
    phone. But not necessarily have to put up with the bugs and the poor
    coverage that it was first offering. Certainly, the 3G side of things
    wasn't anything to write home about. And even now I'm not that impressed
    with it.
