    Both yesterday and today every time Ive tried to make a call the phone gives out one beep and will not let me connect.
    Ive had to switch the phone off and on several times to make it work.

    PS. Ive had full bars on both days.
    Any ideas ?.

    I have had this before in orange. Check your sim card is seated properly, sometimes the catch is not pushed up properly.

    Could also be that you're hitting the 3G problems that hit a lot of us T-Mobile users. If my G2/Hero is set to use 3G and the signal's not very strong then I can't make or receive calls/texts even though I show bars. Have to set the handset to 2G only for reliable calling and texting.

    It's not just tmob users having the 3g issues I've been posting about this problem for ages. I'M on orange. Orange keep saying its due to 3g network issues in the area. Which ok it might be ,but I still have problems in 2g all be it loads less. NO one else I know in,my area on Orange have this issue.

    I had the same problem with mine on Friday. Incoming calls also failed to dead air... Restart didn't cure it either, but it started working again after about 15 mins had passed. I am on the Vodafone network.

    The sim cage can be a little flakey; make sure its pushed home securely

    Yeah I had the SIM card issue too when I first got mine; didn't realise that I was supposed to slide it across after inserting the SIM and my signal kept dying, but since then it has been fine
