Problem with some mobile phone networks today...

In case anyone missed this on the News...

Millions of smartphone users in the UK have lost their data services after the O2 network suffered technical problems.

O2 has 25 million customers, but also provides services for the Sky, Tesco, Giffgaff and Lycamobile networks which have another seven million users.

You would think that Armageddon had come about if you believed the over dramatic BBC News.

This is not the first time 02 has had problems. I used to be on it but the coverage up here in Caithness is hopeless. I was advised to switch over to Three and I've only had signal problems in a few places since I did.

That might explain why I saw my neighbour this morning, standing outside his house and staring into space as though his soul had been removed.
