Some known remedies are to remove your Sim Card and give it a clean then re insert. If your services still do not return then another option is to pick up a correct sized blank SIM card from an 02 High-Street Store, and perform the sim swap procedure in-store, or carry out the process yourself at home.
It could take from approx a couple of hours to twenty four for your services to fully return. Turning your phone off and on throughout this period helps to reset things.
Also rule out that your handset itself is not at fault by trying your current Sim in another phone ,and check over your APN Settings.
If you contact 02 Customer Services from your mobile by dialling 202 for Pay Monthly Customers or 4445 for Payg Customers they will be able to check your account.
Live Chat are available for Low Level general enquiries ,but I personally wouldn't advise contacting this service for Account Enquiries.

Or if you feel the info on the service checker site about the masts may be wrong, then phone 02 on the numbers provided and challenge the masts status.
