Question regards farthest....

Postby Shaky_BobaFett » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:06 am

Right lads I'm heading down along with me old mucka(k9bye) for our first experience of FF and well up for it. But a quick question.... Phone signal/reception any good? The reason I ask is was hoping to use PayPal for anything I see to buy.
Me mate matt is fine as he's got looooooads of cash :) :D :D but I'll be hoping for 3G or wi fi possibly ? Anyone confirm I'll be ok ?
Cheers lads

I think I have the wifi code for the pub over the road.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

I find the reception a bit retro.

I'm on Vodafone and can never get 3g in the hall. Skanking the pub wifi sounds like the right idea but there is a cashpoint on the high street about 100m away.

Cheers lads, seems like I'll be popping into the pub a bit...... Any excuse!
So it looks like I'll be able to buy that Death Star pencil sharpener after all then! :D

Just a heads up, but a lot of the traders there are collectors selling their surplus items and picking stuff up again at the show, so cash is the way to go. :-)

Well by the time we get to FF, i would have probably heard how great West Ham are a 100 times from shaky bobafett so spare a thought for me on our 7 hour round trip :D . Sounds like Cash is the way to go, and using paypal at the pub over the road or a piggy back on shaky, phone held in the air to try and find a signal!

Are you sure they haven't cut you off?

I have O2 and was there today - 3G sometimes 4G and no probs making a call.
