    02 network down!

    Hi

    Just wanted to ask if other 02 users are having problems at 20.47 hours.

    Trying to ring peeps and keep getting connection error on my phone, even after turning it off and back on.

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    I have not noticed anything. If calls are failing its generally a mast issue rather then network wide. Data on the other hand.....

    o2 have confirmed there is an issue and they hope to have it back up during the night.

    (From a Facebook contact who called them)

    Twitter is a good place to look too.

    I know one thing for sure, i am not on o2 but tried to contact them earlier.. twice in fact to query a problem and both times they said hello and they the line went dead.. :\ i was like that was nice.. so phoned orange instead who were a great help lol --- Off Topic i Know! --- but seeing this might have something to do with the issues calling them earlier.

    Call volume. Probably their phone system couldn't cope.

    "There has been a network failure at a YATEs point where construction
    work has knocked off the power. The whole of the O2 network in the UK is
    having problems due to this and have no timescales to when this will be
    fixed. Customer services had over a thousand people in the queue by the
    time it got to 8:45pm and most advisors would have been unaware until
    this point. Also affects Orange and Vodafone."

    So much ranting on the o2 forum. I'm sure they're working to fix the issue, people don't like being separated from their mobile do they?!

    o2 problems

    The O2 3G network are having problems, to re-connect to the network while there are problems, you need to go into your phones settings and change the network config from dual mode or 3G to GSM, you should be able to connect to the network.
    Don't forget to change your phone settings back once the problem has been fixed.
