As Sallybear says, it's nationwide. It was on the lunchtime News on the TV today. A "Core Switch" somewhere has failed. A lot of folk are fizzing. After Blackberry went tits up last time they said "It won't happen again". Oh really ??
You can check the status of the phone here using the IMEI number.
Surely that won't work for UK mobiles? If a mobile is blocked in the UK it will still be useable abroad.
True, I've just used a UK checking service and that's given me an IMEI as being blocked, tried that one (which is Australian) and it says that it is fine, so it's no use for UK users, although does give you am idea where blocked phones might be sent to.
