The System Is Busy

Go to solution

I've just started getting "The System Is Busy" on my mobile everytime I try and make an outgoing call.

 

I can recieve incoming calls and can call my voicemail.

Actually it seems to be just land lines I've got issues with.

Perhaps its the numbers you are calling, the exchange may have problems.

That's what I assumed so I tried a Reading number and a North Wales number, both had the same message,

Then its probably a problem on the interconnect point where the EE (BT Mobile) network joins the BT core network.

Could be a fault, or congestion, or a problem at the cellsite.

 

What area are you calling from? The BT Mobile fault status does not show ny issues.

Probably just a temporary fault, as nothing has been reported yet. You could try turning the phone off, then on again, to get a different timeslot.

Tried that a couple of times already but I'll turn the phone off and try again in 30mins.

I've been having the same problem today since 1pm. Im in the rugby area trying to call different local landline numbers and keep getting the 'sorry, system is busy' message. Very frustrating!
