    seems fine to me.mind you at around 3am telephone service seems hardly a priority to orange...i have, on occasion, noticed similar lapse in service at these times which I think is very poor indeed. especially since any calls made at such hours would be emergencies i would have thought the importance of a working service would be paramount...well, looks like another 'service' is taking liberties with our money and time!!

    yeah and why is it that when these services boast a 99% coverage of the country and yet you ALWAYS seem to be in that 1% where its cr*p? is it a small bubble I'm in that prevents me?

    I guess its something like my pet rain-cloud...

    No network claims to have 99% country coverage.

    They claim, 99% UK Population coverage.......

    either way myself, my girlfriend and perhaps those on this forum also seem to come under the 'other 1%' which just so happens not to be covered by the network...they always make excuses too that a reciever in 'your area' has been experiencing problems...i suggest they check their recievers across the country if thats the case!!

    Its usually around this time that work is carried out on the network, and the systems that support the 'back end' operation.
    Not ideal, but its better than taking down the network etc during peak times.
