I'm in the City of Munich today, and Vodafone is helpfully diverting all calls to me straight to my voicemail, without giving me the opportunity to answer them. Whilst this is doing wonders for my participation in Oktoberfest, it's annoyed the hell out of my wife. Anybody else having a similar problem?
No TV, no license
Thanks for the correction David. I was only 6 at the time so it must have remained a common misconception long afterwards!
It's going the other way here in Germany - they already had an EU66/year charge for Radio-only in their 'GEZ' license (EU204 for TV covers all) but they've this year introduced an EU66/year charge for Internet-connected PC's or UMTS cellphones, in the absence of getting your Euros from you any other way.
Only a matter of time before the UK catches on to that one?
precious little quality television??
David Harper threatened:
> I'll ... tear up my television licence and start listening to a lot more Radio 4.
Heh.. You still need a TV license to legally listen to Radio 4 !!
