Is anyone else having problems with the Orange mobile network..?

I have two phones including a BlackBerry and both have gone down last night about 9pm..

Both handsets are just saying "No Network"..

Anyone know of any coverage issues on the Wirral or did someone just pull a plug out somewere in Orange and not relised..

I have just made use of the live webchat via the Orange website. They tell me that one of the cell towers in the Birkenhead area have developed a fault but they can't tell me which one..

This is providing a 'degraded' service and will affect other Orange users in the Birkenhead area.

If I get anymore info I will keep you all posted..:)

Since Orange can't tell us which cell towers have been affected. I have found this website which tells us were all the cell towers are and who owns them..

Just click on the link below and punch in your post code..

http://sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/search

It's amazing how many there are out there..

By way of an update..

Orange have restored the GSM network but not the 3G..

So any smartphones will still be affected..
