Is anyone else having a problem with signal and messages not coming through as ive not had any through at all this morning and people have rung the house phone to ask why i have not replied and if im still here so does it really have that big an effect on our signal? Interesting to see which providers are suffering too, ill start by saying im on Vodafone so shame on them.

Calls get priority over messages so if a cell or trunk is busy the messages get held. IT could be busy due to the number of people calling work to say the are stuck ;-) or soem kit is down because of the weather.

If I need a definite, quick or immediate response from someone though, I'll call rather than text as otherwise you have no idea they've seen the text, let alone received it.

I'm on Vodafone too and this morning I got a lot of 'network busy error messages. Ok now though. Scunthorpe area.

On 3 mobile and no issues.

My Dad is also on Three and randomly lost all signal last night though. Restarted the phone and it was fine.

Reset my phone earlier and seems to be ok for now, had the odd struggle to send messages but so far so good since the reset.

Interesting.

I'm on Vodafone (live near Heathrow) and yesterday I had people telling me they were ringing my mobile (iPhone 4), only to get the engaged tone-no voicemail, no dead tone, just an engaged tone. :eek:

I get that I'm on vadofone and sometime when mates ring they tell me it goes straight to answer machine sometimes it does it all day even though I'll have full signal and I'm not on the phone. My mates phone does the same thing he is on 3 but 3 are rubbish around here the signal is so temperamental.
