It would have been nice to have had a text message this morning to tell me there was a problem with the network. Both me and my partner wasted a lot of time thinking it was our phones/sims that were the problem.

Unfortunately had O2 giffgaff sky tesco etc sent SMS messages to all their customers that would have required the sending of 3 million texts at a time when texts were only working intermittently.
When GG alone text their customer base it has to be spread over 3 days to avoid disruption. so sorry this would not have been viable.
It was widely covered by the news services all day.

If there is a network problem that affects SMS texts (so possibly not yesterday's problem) how would you receive a text?

if the network is down, trying to send a text message to millions of customers might not help ?
Get a free giffgaff Sim
