    Since about 1900 BST Thursday the O2 network has been broken.

    I'm currently roaming in Germany and I'm not able to get any phone service. I've phoned O2 this morning only to be told yes they know of the issue but have no idea when it will be fixed!

    Apparently anyone roaming with their O2 mobile phone will not be able to get service atm.

    Cheers,

    Yep same here, hope it gets sorted soon.

    Once it's fixed on O2's end, any idea if we need to restart the phone or take the SIM out and put it back in etc? Or should it just start working out of the blue later today?

    I'm not sure... but 'd guess you should be able to either reboot the phone or just switch "airPlane" mode on and then off.

    btw... you should file a complaint with OfComm it's about the only way O2 will take any notice of us.
