My day at work was chaos because of it. Could get in touch with deliveries, suppliers or half the site team. I was rather late in due to not have Waze and stuck in traffic on the way home which was Censored .

A lot of time (and cash) wasted today, so yeah quite a big deal. Garage Clear Out

I had to send a runner across hyde park from a job to the office...

The funniest thing i saw all day was random people talking to eachother on the tube to entertain themselves, that and the Dot matrix overhead sign "DO NOT LOOK AT YOUR PHONE AND DRIVE - PHONES OUT" and watching all the drivers in front of me swerve as they checked their phones...

I got an actual fax today, A real life fax...

for how often I use mine, I haven't even noticed the network was down. I have even thought about replacing it with a really cheap unit, its just used for ringing takeaways and my pals the odd time, the parents had asked me if I wanted to go contract, but it wouldn't even be worth it lol. Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Isn’t it amazing how much most of us (sorry Procta) rely on our phones?

It’s a bit like a power-cut. You don’t miss it till it’s not there.

I don’t know about you but I’m lost when I leave mine at home.

I'm on Sky. (O2 Network.)

Noticed but never used it anyway, I only do about once a week if that. Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

If you are talking about the Beans version of that phone I found it had a lot of problems with it. Predominantly issues with wind noise on the line.

I am particularly impressed with the way O2 have publicised that the problem was with a software issue with a piece of equipment supplied by Erickson.

Sorry O2. If I am late for work because of the weather, do I blame Caral Kirkwood?

(Actually I do. Sorry Carol. I hope I am still getting a Christmas card?)

It is rather worrying how reliant people are on technology.
We have become less resilient and wide open to catastrophe when technology fails - as it will.
I am of the BMP era (before mobile phones) and we managed very well with landlines ( often shared with your neighbours) and talking. Things took a bit longer but we managed quite well.
We sorted WW2 without mobile phones too!!
