O2 orange, cable-tel ,they come change go set up its all to do with buying selling air time, cost cutting gotta make big bucks syndrome . the E.U. does get to it in the end but it takes TIME ask France telecom orange network systems they were fined 250,000,000 for some of this type of cartelling,and interference with communications.

My mum has spoken to O2, they are telling her that Cyprus has barred O2 users but wont give her a reason, she has already had O2 problems with other O2 users in the UK and the final straw is not recieving or sucessfully sending text to Cyprus. O2 didn't really seem bothered but she's on the case !

Yes I've started to received text messages again yesterday from O2 networks, I received one that was sent on the 13th!, my family have also been into the shops as well so I guess its done some good!! no explanation though as to why it stopped!!! Lets see if it now continues to work.
Thanks again to all for input

I've been having problems with 02 off and on for a few months now. It has been totally off for the last 2 weeks, can't get texts in or out, only have "emergency service".
