O2 resolves internet access issue for iPhone

"Vast majority" of customers have access to web and MMS

O2 has restored internet connections and MMS services for the "vast majority" of its mobile phone customers, including Apple iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users.

Yesterday, the mobile phone network used micro blogging service Twitter to warn its customers that it was having problems with providing web access and MMS functions. It is thought the outage affected hundreds of thousands of UK monthly contract users.

O2, which holds an exclusive deal with Apple to offer the iPhone 3G and 3GS in the UK, said it was investigating the issue and would continue to restore service to those customers still without internet access and MMS functions. The network also said that PAYG customers and those with BlackBerry handsets owners not affected by the outage.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
