Ok, I know I'm frigging mad asking this on here but I've sat here trying his phone over and over and over and it's just engagged.

twice it's rung and then sayd "sorry there is no reply"

Have rung his work and they say they are no affected but Dh has his break in london sometimes.

Will phone be going wrong?

Mobile phones are out, the network is too busy. Don't worry.

jessicaandbumpsmummy Thu 07-Jul-05 11:57:23

all mobiles have been shut down temporarily so emergency services can use the networks. im in colchester,essex and cant get dh on his.

All networks are down in London apparently.

mobile networks have been jammed and I think they have shut down all networks to stop them denoting bombs with mobiles

I've been emailing people to try to get news from relatives and friends there. I can't get through on phones.
