Vodafone customers suffer mystery number blockage
No calls to 07800 for you lot
Vodafone has confirmed that a large number of its customers have been unable to make calls to Orange customers whose phones start with the 07800 prefix.
According to Register readers, the problem began last weekend, with Vodafone customer support staff acknowledging the problem by Monday.
When we spoke to Vodafone, engineers were not sure exactly how many people were affected, nor could they say exactly what the problem is.
As for a fix, there is no certainty there, either. A spokesman for Vodafone says they are hoping to have the problem rectified in the next couple of days.
Our thanks to Ophicle for the tip. ®
