Default Is anyone having problems with Orange network coverage at present.

My contract phone is suddenly showing no network coverage. I have some Payg sims and two are also not showing coverage but one is and is dialling out okay.
Is anyone else experiencing problems? How can I find out as on the payg mobile all I seem to be getting on 450 is automated responses and I need a human voice.........help.

Some have reported that Orange texts aren't going through? I couldn't find my phone in the house today and phoned it from the house phone and it went straight to the answer machine without ringing?

This sounds as if it would be the same as phoning on 150 from the mobile. I believe that they would charge to speak to customer services which seems annoying to me to have to pay to report a fault or query their lack of service.

It still was not on past eleven. Seemed suspicious as no hundreds of replies. So I decided to take the sim out and reinstall. Hey I got a signal.
So I dont know what happened but thanks to those who replied as it did help.

Just in case anybody has this problem it's very likely to be that your sim card or your phone is damaged.

My DD has been having problems with the service on her orange contract phone today. She hasn't been able to make any phonecalls but can receive them.

As this thread is pretty old and there is a more up to date thread regarding problems with Orange, I'll shift these posts over shortly.

Posts now merged with a more recent thread.

Default Problems with Orange email

No problems with Orange mobile phones, but horrendous problems with Orange email which has been going on now for 3 weeks and still no likelihood of it being resolved. Apparently Orange engineers are "unable to give likely timescale", and whole problem is being blamed on one "offending customer" who has jammed the server. Just as well it is free broadband, but the customer service stinks and it is enough to drive me to to another provider whatever the price!!

I have had nothing but problems for the last 3 weeks with network coverage. Everytime I go to make a call I can't get a signal and when I do get one it's weak. I'm going to change to another network provider asI'm paying for a service that I'm not getting.
