All day my Orange cell phone has said, "no network connection." A few other friends are having the same problem. Any news?

I dropped by their office in Sosua, and was told that the heavy rain had caused some damage. The girl told me it would be up again within 2 hours............this was at 11AM today.........ha ha. Apparently affecting the entire north coast, maybe more.

I wonder whether this has been something that has been building up for some time. The Orange network has been having a lot of problems recently in the North Coast area. Thandie and I have both started threads on this. IMO they have not the equipment in place to deal with the amount of users and the traffic on the network.

Orange is working in SD and the southwest areas of the country. It appears to be a North Coast problem.

orange has been offline now for more then 24 hours in sosua and puerto plata at least, if they will ever come back online, what will the users get from orange, as new laws say the user needs to be compensated for the offline time.

Centennial is working fine in the area. So not all cells are down.

I hadn't seen this thread (only the Jodetel thread), so after having been without Orange cell service for 24 hrs now, I started to suspect that maybe my last payment had not been accounted for correctly and my service suspended and called the help line from a land line around noon today.

I was told that Orange North service is down and they are working on it, but not given any estimate of time.

reboot periodically!

If your phone still shows NO service, it would seem advisable to turn it OFF and ON again (reboot). I just did that et voila... I'm back online... only that those I wanted to call still aren't!

Text Messages?

I have been trying to call my friend for two days now and cannot get through. However, I was wondering if he would be able to receive the text messages that I have been sending him over the past 48 hours??

I dont think so - the network is down - nothing seems to be getting through in some areas.

Waiting for updates....

Are you back on?

North Coast people - the silence is deafening!!

Is Orange back up and running yet - or are you too busy catching up with your phone calls? :p
