IPA: [kaɪ̯n nɛʦ]
Kein Netz – No network
This is what is shown on my phone when there’s no service.
Literally, it means “no network”, but it could also be translated as “no service”.
It tends to happen very often – whenever I enter the lift of my apartment block, for example.
Okay, so, the picture I decided to make probably isn’t the very best description of this phrase based on the above definition, but my understanding is that “Kein Netz” also can be used to mean that there is no Internet service. There is no connection to the network.
After all, the Internet is just the biggest network that there is right now.
