A map shows the widespread outage appears to have affected much of England and Scotland, however it seems that not all EE phones are affected.
Numerous users have been contacting the company to ask them to 'sort it out'.
Users - Down - Detector - Calls - Text
Users have also complained to Down Detector, with one writing: 'Unable to make calls, text or no mobile data... slightly frustrating. Unsure why I pay £50 a month for a service that isn't provided!'
One customer posted a picture of the EE message that appears on his screen when he tried to use the app which read: 'There seems to be a problem… Sorry we're having a difficulty right now. Try closing the app and coming back a bit later.'

The problem seemed to persist despite shutting down his phone and uninstalling the app.
