happy new year!! to all forumites!! unfortunately I tried to send that same msg to 2 people 2nite (1 bmbile the other digicel) & both failed... tried 3 times each... still got msg "sending failed" ok so i just read in a forum that bmobile-digicel sms & vice versa not possible.. but what about the bmobile no 778....?

anybody else tried txting 2nite after midnight? i wonder if plenty people trying 2 send new year greetings at the same time & jamming the network (bmobile)?

Dont know if you ever noticed but this is a yearly occurance,uh just have to live with it I guess.Thats why every year I send out all my greetings about 10 mins before New Years and the networks get jammed.

I more believe it is a yearly scheduled network shutdown. I was on the phone already and all of a sudden at midnight I got cut off. Maybe they anticipate network jams and just suspend it for a few mins. I could not make any calls for exactly 10 mins after midnight. Oh well.

I suppose that may be true because even though my phone was connected to the bmobile network,on the display it said 'NO NETWORK ACCESS',so they probably locked everyone out for a while

I dont understand why they do that wouldn it just delay the flux of callers? kinda like road traffic when people try to leave early or late and realise everybody else doing the same thing...
All that network traffic probably really does some kinda physical damage.

I guess they are trying to prevent what happenned back in 2004(when TDMA waa still dominant,lol)and the GSM network crashed for an entire day an they had to call their friends at Nortel to help them fix it,the SMALL money they must of spend back then maybe give them network failure paranoia,so they would do all in their power to stop the network from ever crashing again,even if it means dropping our calls when they say yuh cod talk unlimited,blocking our txts and mms,or locking us out of the network,I guess they see it as a SMALL price to pay.
