Cornish businesses say they have lost money because of the O2 glitch.

On Pirate FM's facebook page we are hearing how some have been dealing with missed payments and bookings.

Self-employed carpenter Richard from Bugle is not happy:

"My daughter catches the train home and lets me know that obviously she's on her way, for me to pick her up from the station, and she couldn't do that yesterday. My partner was trying to make some important calls this morning and couldn't do that either. It's just ridiculous.

"I remember the last time I had this problem, and I was contemplating actually cancelling it, because this was the third time in so many months. Now this is the fourth time in six months. We pay our bills, and we're not getting a good service."

Bosses say the network is back to normal again now, after the 24 hour outage.

It left millions of customers unable to call, text or access data services.

Pirate FM's Facebook page has been flooded with complaints:

Tom says his business payments are down.

Laura from Polperro writes,  "What happens if the kids have an emergency?"

Anthony from Falmouth is worried his wife will not be able to get through if there is an emergency with his poorly son.
