Very simple idea, but I really think this would be really helpful for newcomers until giffgaff do something more sophisticated  :smileyhappy:



When I first joined my SIM didn't work and I naturally looked at the Service Updates board to see if there were any problems that could explain that.   There were none listed and it took a while of searching in the other forums to find suggestions on using the 02 status checker.  



Create a locked sticky single post thread in the Service Updates board (so that people can't post to it and it is permanently at the top) entitled 'Check for local network issues' and include a message along these lines.


If you are having problems with calls, texts or the Internet that aren't explained by other posts on this board then please first check for local issues in your area by using this tool - (or a version of this giffgaff coverage checker


Please note that agents are unable to help with problems caused by local network issues.  For non network issues maybe see if the community can help by posting your problem here



Helpful/logical place for finding this tool and could stop people raising unnecessary tickets with the agents.  :smileyhappy:

Note this is just a one off thread/post that doesn't give live updates, just the link to the 02 status checker.


Comments welcomed :smileyhappy:

Yes, right at the bottom of the page where hardly anyone goes ever.

Maybe (never noticed it)  but people sometimes come to the Service board when they have issues with the network and it's a natural place to have this information.

<P> <SPAN class="size"><SPAN class="size">© 2010 Danielclo1il </SPAN></SPAN></P>
