I managed to change my phone to 2G from 3G under options/signal and it is now(touch wood) working fine. Rumour has it that it will be about a week after work on signals before it will work fully. All to do with signal strength.

I had the same problem over the weekend and yesterday. I can confirm that the changing to 2G settings has resolved the problem for myself aswell.

That's great to hear Drustew. Fantastic that we were all able to work together and identify the problem and resolve it.
I still say that it would have been better/easier for Blackberry to take some responsibility for the problem and put a 'known issues and work around' post on their page. We still don't know when the issue is going to be resolved apart from word of mouth in the focus page.
Guess who came home grumpy from work today????

I also agree that Blackberry or O2 should have put up something on their website warning users that 3G coverage may be affected in certain areas due to a low O2 signal to give people time to switch. In their defence, perhaps this was not possible!! However I had to travel 17 miles into Dundee from near Blairgowrie to get a 3G signal so I could change the settings. Seems extreme but even with the SIM card removed the phone kept rebooting itself! Nevertheless all seems well now and due to everyone sharing information, we seem to have we solved the immediate problem. Hopefully someone can alert us all when 3G coverage is restored - Blackberry & O2 take note!!!
