Not had signal for about two hours. My mate just popped up on facebook saying the same.
You in London?
turns out it's true! :(
Although I can't get 3G at the moment. Would it be affecting that too? Shit.
but im ok on wifi. But it's quite (read: very) annoying.

@O2 This is absolutely ridiculous. No cell or data service!? I hope we will get reimbursed for service failure this month.
I was sitting there like a twat wondering why no-one was responding any texts I'd sent after about 3pm. Can still use mobile internet but can't send iMessages.
It's on the Beeb now though: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18801300
can't connect to page
the whole digital world's unravelling
can't believe DIS is still working
but someone I work with, there signal only went down a couple of hours ago.
with all the notifications that had been delayed.
It's now gone down again. Brilliant.
woke up at 5am to a text from Papa Johns about 2 for 1 Wednesday, a text about PPI and another one from my mum asking what time I'd be over.
Verbal's mum woke me up at 4am this morning and has now gone down again. Brilliant.
And at 5am your mum called asking what time I'd be over.
And you're right: seeing as I now don't know who it actually was that called at 5am it looks like I will have to settle for a jerk instead.
I've been able to make calls and recieve texts etc since I did that
it was down for about 16 hours though. Reckon they'll knock a bit of your bill?
in fact I've had full bars in my flat, I never get full bars in my flat
A blip on a network made the news! We do alright in this country really.
got this email at work today:
"You may have heard on the news that there is an issue affecting some O2 mobile phone customers today. Please note that you may have difficulty contacting colleagues on their University (or personal O2) mobile phones until the problem is resolved. University iPhone users can still access their emails provided they are connected to a wifi network.
By an unfortunate coincidence, University TMobile and Vodafone phones are due to switch to the O2 network today. Users affected should collect their new handset as already notified and check their new phone on a regular basis to see if the switchover has happened."
I mean, i fully understand how people are put out, and why you might discuss it online, but a few people not being able to send text messages for a few hours shouldn't be headline news on the BBC and Sky, ffs.
I felt like a bit of a gimp checking my phone every other minute last night to see if my signal was back.
It's time wasted that they could otherwise be using to keep us up to date on something that someone said on twitter.
This makes up for EVERYTHING
just went outside and full bat. Just no signal in office, weirdly.
people demand financial compensation because they couldn't send texts for a couple of hours?
If my phone wasn't working for a few hours i don't think it'd even register (and obviously i use it for extremely important, deal-clinching calls and that).
giving a couple of free days provides good PR after a bad thing, keeps people sweet and stops them leaving.
Help yourself to a biscuit.
