yesterday the orange network was down for the majority of the day, meaning i could not send or receive texts, nor could i make or receive calls.
making emergency phone calls to 999 would not even go through :S this is not acceptable really, especially seeing as this can literally mean life or death in an attack...
apparently though when the network is down, in an emergency, you can ring 112 as it picks up ur location using diff thing regardless of if you have battery, sim card, or anything
also, my phone has been playing up since i dropped it last week at a costa appt... it keeps typing the letter a or e into a text message when i havent text it ?? and plays a key when i am on the phone during a conversatin when i havent pressed anything. also, cuts out and goes off when i am in the middle of using it. soooo annoying! and also i have to put a bit of tape between the battery and the battery holder thingy, to keep the connection... i was told this was a blackberry curve thing and has happpened to a lot of people who have this handset??
anyways, spoke to orange yesterday, and as its still under warranty, getting phone replaced this morning, new handset to be delivered to my front door personally, between 9-1pm woohoo!!
new phone, hopefully this one will work better!! i have no landline. my mobile phone is my third hand and obviously my lifeline as i am sure it is for many of us...
