Hacked by North Korea probably ( notice how quiet North Korea has been recently )

Ericsson. As usual, the solipsistic UK isn't reporting that this is happening in lots of other countries too.

nemo75 - 06 Dec 2018 13:17:50 (#5 of 101)

Yes it is. It's mentioned in the linked article. And the O2 announcement.

02 dies nationally

It's O2, FFS.

Olé!

My (giffgaff) texts keep bouncing back with “not sent”, but my partner is receiving them, as she’s replied.

What excitement to be in the middle of a national news event.

bossab2 - 06 Dec 2018 13:23:45 (#9 of 101)

My texts are working randomly as well.

I might actually have to use the phone to speak with this afternoon.

Stellata - 06 Dec 2018 13:25:00 (#10 of 101)

My (giffgaff) texts keep bouncing back with “not sent”, but my partner is receiving them, as she’s replied.

I've received seven texts saying the same thing this morning, from a giffgaff user. It hadn't occurred to me I should perhaps acknowledge one of them.

Could be the Chinese of course: trump has just arrested a senior member of staff of a major telecoms company

Have they (O2, that is...) tried switching if off and then on again?

It worked for me a couple of weeks back when my 'phone suddenly refused to send texts to a colleague I'd been happily texting earlier...

thisonehasalittlehat - 06 Dec 2018 13:36:01 (#13 of 101)

#11 So trump (personally, I assume) arrests someone, and Huewaii take revenge by sabotaging the telecoms of a completely different country?

Explain your working.

mememe - 06 Dec 2018 13:36:39 (#14 of 101)

They're tricky.

thisonehasalittlehat - 06 Dec 2018 13:37:33 (#15 of 101)

Well we'll show that bastard trump by doing something thousands of miles away he's probably never going to hear about!

mememe - 06 Dec 2018 13:38:16 (#16 of 101)

Particularly clever doing it through the networks of a completely different infrastructure provider.

thisonehasalittlehat - 06 Dec 2018 13:38:20 (#17 of 101)

I mean do you really think the president of the USA is all over O2's service status, bossab?

thisonehasalittlehat - 06 Dec 2018 13:40:16 (#18 of 101)

Well, o2 do use huewaii tech, but actually the news is they're decommissioning it all because of worries over spying. So I wonder if this isn't a) because some engineer pulled the wrong board or b) entirely coincidental. .

bossab2 - 06 Dec 2018 13:41:19 (#19 of 101)

HM gov will shortly blame Russia.

hailesaladdie - 06 Dec 2018 13:41:21 (#20 of 101)

The Reg reckons it's an Ericsson issue, not a Huawei one.
