    area outside the communication range

    When calling someone by cellphone, we sometimes hear this kind of message (in Japanese in my case):
    "The phone you have called is outside the communication range."
    Is that the way it's said in English?
    Thank you.

    The message varies slightly from provider to provider. The basic message is the same - cannot be reached.

    I agree I got "the cellular customer you are trying to reach is unavailable." when in canada.

    here in Japan .. I get .." bla bla bla .. bla bla bla" .. can't understand a thing...

    Maybe you are using Docomo.. they have a fairly solid English service. About 4 years ago I help them translate alot of their stuff. I used to get pages and pages of the stuff...
