What the ways to say that I was in a place without possibility to connect with my phone?
For example in such situation:
Wife: Why did you not answer my call when I called you?"
Husband: "I was in a place without connection"(?) / or "I didn't have connection"
In my language we say: "I didn't have signal /reception /range /coverage" or "I was in area without signal /reception /range /coverage. (I'm not sure about the accurate term of each one of them for translation).
In the meantime I found somethings but I'm not sure about their usage if any:
- I was in a dead zone for cell phones.
- I was in radio shadow.
- I was in a non-serviced area
