Difficulties for phone users in Oban were raised at the weekend.

Some people using mobiles to telephone certain landline numbers in the town were able to hear the other end but not be heard.

The China Restaurant in Stafford Street said on Facebook that people calling its landline using mobile phones had been affected for a time from Friday, and other businesses had reported the issue too.

BT confirmed today that the problem must have been on another company’s network as it had had no outages or issues reported in Oban.

It suggested anyone with an issue should report it to their landline provider who should be able to investigate.
