Error - Could not activate EDGE

Since this morning I've been getting the error message "Could not activate EDGE" whenever I try to activate the internet (I don't have wi-fi access where I work). Up until today it has been fine.
Is this just a temporary outage on O2's network (in Manchester, if that makes a difference)?

I've tried rebooting my iPhone, resetting the network settings, turning airplane mode on and off, to no avail.

Anyone else getting this message?

It's been happening here in London too since I first tried it at 6:30am.

Well, I'm somewhat relieved. (And annoyed as I was actually going to make use of the maps today)

EDGE access in Manchester is available again (though I had to go in and out of airplane mode to reset the connection). Maybe they've just been messing with the network this morning.

Clearly it's a bit flakey today.
