The iPhone nuts.
I bought a new Nokia 6700 Classic last week and noticed that in default configuration it maintains a constant data connection, I've switched this to as needed as I don't use data that often to reduce the load and help out fellow customers.
I've had to force the phone into GSM to make a call as the 3G network is definitely on the fritz and its all the iPhone's fault I reckon.
Technology breaks down from time to time, if it didn't do you really think there'd be a need for an IT department?
I'd guess quite a few of the commenters work in IT, have any of your systems been down for a while?
Remember, the same types of systems you manage also power the mobile phone networks so they will break from time to time.
If communication is that vital such as keeping in contact with family, carry a prepaid card as a backup, resilience in this situation is just as important as that dual power supply supporting your router/servers.
For goodness sake give fellow techs at O2 a break and stop whining.
A happy O2 customer (no I don't work ffor them but I have the common sense to realise there is no such thing as 100% uptime)
As he is obviously completely nuts or is just trying to bank some serious cash.
Perhaps he's in debt up to his eyeballs.
definitwely time to send in those dressed in white lab coats with a straightjacket.
Big bro icon selected as he is obviously paranoid but would prefer a howling Wolf please
I've watched the yank news recently (ABC world news is broadcast on the Beeb news channel in the small hours) and I'm fed up of hearing that disgraced and now convicted fund manager named as BERRnard Madoff.
Sorry but its just plain Bernard, I know that sounds a bit mundane but hey it is a British name after all.
Oh and by the way check (as in the piece of paper you write an amount on and hand to someone as a payment method) is spelt cheque.
Apologies for the appalling spelling earlier but brain was working quicker than I could type and I had to do some WORK.

As even if you switch to another supplier they have to rent your line from the supposedly fomer monopoly so sadly this means its unlikely to meet its demise anytime soon.
I'm sure if there was any danager of that happening Gordo would whip out his chequebook and bail them out with our money.
I sent an opt out request as it generated a hit when I typed in my details, I'm still waiting for them to confirm the opt out.
Phone numbers that I pay to maintain are mine so I should decide who has them.
It does nothing to instill confidence when you read that such an entity threatened legal action against mobile operators to force them to hand over data.
Any links to Scott 'Spam King' Richter?
Good riddence is what I say.
A rise of the machines story?
Abtraction from the hardware via a self aware OS?
Then there's the generator, perhaps they might think it should be a small nuclear reactor.
I hope I live to be an old man and die before that happens.
Perhaps the film Eagle Eye is very prophetic indeed and then of course there's I, Robot.
For goodness sake, don't give these nutcases positive feedback or we're all doomed!!! :)
Skull and crossbones because it'll be only a matter of time before it considers us meatsacks surplus to requirement.
I wish the guy good health of course but what's this all about, everyone knows that Woz was the real technical brains of the outfit but we never hear much about him do we?
Seriously are people that obsessed (including some reporters it would appear).
What's going to happen to Apple whenever he does go and meet the Great Biological Software Architect in the sky?
My broadband and to have my mail hosted in a secure data centre so that I can use it with my domain name and have access to a secure webmail interface for checking it at work but my OS, applications and legally acquired music belong on a hard disk in the silver aluminium minitower sitting beside my desk thank you.
Their website punts Cobalt Qube servers for goodness sake.
I was looking for references to the RaQ XTR as well, perhaps their customer base wasn't that tech savvy as a website that has not been updated in years would set alarm bells ringing in my head.
Unless its just a sign of under investment.
FFS will the US government do something useful for once and block this
I mean the company took a retrograde step in releasing the steaming pile that is vista, do we really want them designing tools to fiddle with people's genes?
I bet this won't get through the mod process as MS is probably a major advertising spender.
