Trouble getting through to the UK by phone today..

Is anybody experiencing the same thing today?   All I get is a fax tone to two particular numbers I'm trying to get through to.   They don't have faxes and mine is off!

Intriguing!  ......do you think the soft furnishing industry (cushions swags 'n tails etc ) has this kind of thing going on aswell?     All my work is in the UK, so to all those cut-throat competitors tuning in, don't bother as I am not here to steal your customers!!!

You might have thought I was joking ( 007 etc ) but I had a party for some what I thought bona fide yacht brokers last week and removed 3 auto 'listening devices ' from my premises the next day , including one in the toilet behind the cistern - I suppose the theory being to call through the info. gathered in the security of the WC - you can never be too careful , and as the 3 devices were from 3 completely different 'spy' companies , I can only assume at least 3 yacht brokers are keen to know what I'm doing ? The 4'th device I found , I've left in place to give Intox !

No, its London.   But maybe there is a knock-on effect.        Palmtrees

If you are trying to call Manchester there have been major problems all week due to a fire in a BT tunnel.

I've made several calls today from landline and cellphone to UK landline and cellphones and had no problem.

Do you think anyone has any reason to ' bug ' your phone ?
