No, the originator of a call can always terminate it immediately by hanging up. It is the recipient that cannot.

Sadly true - wouldn't that be fun if you could tie up their lines for them 8^)

Also worth getting hold of a free SIM to check coverage from the competing networks


Tried all the major providers that (allegedly) provide a service in this area to no avail.

A bit ridiculous that I'm only seventeen miles from the centre of Glasgow and there is no mobile service.

Problem seems to be that the area is low lying and is surrounded by higher ground which is mostly basalt rock. The emergency services also have trouble with their radios.

Thanks for clarifying. Shame. Well, I guess the upside of that is, if you leave your phone off the hook, they can't call you back for a while. The downside is nobody else can call you either. smile

As long as the whistle doesn't get on your nerves.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
