    I work near basingstoke and it was all over the news, people were saying that some guys broke into the vodaphone service center nearby and nicked loads of stuff like servers etc!!

    Trying to find the page from the bbc news I saw earlier.

    Yep!! Happened to me!!
    People kept telling me today that when they called me they got a continuous unobtainable tone.
    Happened around lunchtime.

    It would appear that T-mobile have been effected too (I think they are the same company??)
    Most of the users affected were in the M4 corridor area, to the west of London:

    Well that is just odd! My phones literally didn't do alot most of the day. And considering how far I'm away from the incident. Same beepy fail tone, texts very sparse, couldn't phone out. Bit annoying as I rely on my mobile for business so it lost me a fair bit of money :(

    Maybe get myself some pigeons for future reliable communications.
