    Default Vodacom Pretoria

    Has anyone else in the past 2-3 months struggled with reception? I can hardly have a conversation when inside the house, and outside is hardly better. I'm in Moreleta ... My parents visited 2 months ago and same for them, so it's not my phone and I never struggled previously.

    Not LTE or 3G, actual call to call reception.

    I've been experiencing the same on Vodacom

    On the R21 there is a place in Clayville, past Rosema Stene where the call will always drop. "Call failed"...

    In-laws are in Rietvalleirand, and the reception there is horrendous.

    Im in Newlands and if on 4G cant call out or receive calls. Switch to 3G and the problem goes away. Been like this for months now.

    I have many dead spots in Centurion on Vodacom, even switching phones have not solved the problem

    Just funny that it was never like this .... can it be due to the battery theft from the towers of late? I know it's been rive in outlying Pretoria the past months.

    My calls are fine, but from time to time I get days like yesterday where my phone is nearly useless. The local tower also has about 5 - 10min battery backup it seems. During loadshedding there is no reception.

    I am in Brackenfell and have issues with reception as well. Phone is fine all day, but when I get home it shows Emergency calls only. Then restart and all is well again.

    Something is rotten in the state of Vodacom.

    My current problem is I cant receive calls from most numbers, especially vodacom itself, my one colleagues on MTN and can call me and everything is fine, but the other colleague (also on MTN) can't, all the other people I knew thats on Vodacom goes to voicemail. Landlines also works.
    Can send sms's, whatsapp/data connections and make calls to any number.
    Currently busy with my second Vodacom Online chat session as the first person could not resolve the issue.

    Mybroadband did some research on the mobile data quality across SA. Vodacom definitely has some catching up to do.

    Interesting reading:

    I'm in the Willows area in Pretoria and my Vodacom signal also suck. Also need to make calls outside the house from time to time.
