No doubt otherrats are being informed by their banks and credit card
providers that Two Factor Authentication is nigh, and that, in order to
do pretty much anything, you will receive a one time code via text.
Wofe and I have both responded & pointed out that
"I don't have a mobile phone." [Wofe]
"I have a phone, but cannot get a signal in this house (nor the garden,
or outside the garden unless I wander up the road 50 yards or so) and
hence can't receive your text." [Me]

13% had a poor or no signal at home.
Anyone else in this situation?
Incidently Three used to have an "app" which allowed you to make &
receive calls and texts via your home wifi/internet - but they have
deleted this app just before the introduction of Two Factor Authentication.
