Its going to take some time tonight to bring the backhauls back on line, and probably a cycle of the switching infrastructure at each cell site to be able to offer 4G fully...

And so endeth the first lesson in IT: turn it off and on again nerd

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

HI

 

After yesterdays problems, I have 3g but am still having problems with texts. Twice I've contacted o2 via Twitter and whilst I appreciate they have been busy a reply would be nice seeing as other people who tweeted around the same time or after have been replied to...

 

Anyway Smiley Happy Text's still aren't working for me. The recipient is getting the same message 3 times, but I am getting a message saying message delivery has failed. I have an Iphone 4s. I've done a factory reset and also switched it off and on again. 

 

Does anyone else have any advice please?

Thanks in advance.

All working. Wouldnt surprise me if they purposely waited until overnight to restore services, when its quieter on the network

@paulbacon

Overnight isnt actually a quiet time anymore especially for devices to send data and sms messages, such as monitoring appliances, smart meters, tills etc..

@smh1982 i would just reset the network component and drop down to 3g, then put the phone into airplane mode then turn off airplane mode wait 10 mins then step backk to 4g

@madasaf1sh - thanks, I'll give that a try, although I'm not techno enough for 4g - just 3g for me Smiley Happy

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

So who do i put my complaint to?  My OT has this contract in my name and relies on seizealarm if she has an epileptic seizure which was as much use as a chocolate fireguard due to the outage.
