I hope there's someone on here that knows a thing or two about phones because I know nothing at all.
Every time I phone my friend's mobile I get the recorded message
'It has not been possible to connect your call. Please try again later'.
This has been happening for over three weeks. I've tried ringing at all different times of the day but still always get the same message.
I have had this message in the past, but its usually temporary for a few hours or at most a day or two, but never for this long.
I know its not my phone as I have a strong signal and I've tried other numbers and putting my sim card in other phones and I have no problems making or receiving calls.
I've even e-mailed 02 and have not received a reply from them
I can only guess [and hope] that the person I'm trying to call is having problems with her phone.
What I want to know is, is this a network problem, a signal problem, has the phone gone out of range, is it broken, locked, is there no credit in it?
Is this message a standard one for a whole range of problems or for one specific one?
Is there any way I can find out what's happened?
I want someone to tell tell me that I'm not being intentionally ignored or cut off before I totally lose the plot.
Tell me I'm overreacting, tell me I'm being paranoid, delusional, tell me I'm nuts, tell me I'm being stupid and worrying too much, tell me its anything but that.
I don't know what else to do and because you people on here have such a wide range of skills and knowledge about all different things and are so often very kind and helpful I couldn't think of where else I could ask.
Believe me I wouldn't draw attention to myself like this or make a thread about this unless it was really important or I wasn't at the end of my wits about this.
I mean its the festive season and New Year soon and all that and not being able to talk to your closest [or only] friend is a bit distressing to put it mildly.
I'd be really grateful if anyone took the time to read this and for any help/advice you could give.
