BREAKING! Cell phone and search engine doom! What the %$#& is going on????
I've been trying for the past half-hour to make calls on my LG cell phone (I'm with Telus) and the following message keeps coming up:

"CALL FAILED PLEASE
!!!! TRY AGAIN"


After this happening for a few tries, I thought I'd google the phrase to see if other people were having the same problem. This is the what I found on my search engine page when I searched within the time frame "Past hour":

Every single entry had the phrase "Email check failed, please try again".

So...

I googled "Email check failed, please try again", and this is what I got:

I'm now going to see how far down this rabbit hole goes and keep checking the phrases that come up.

Anyone else encountering this communications doom?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8937311


It's a "pay'n'talk" (prepaid) plan. I just loaded it a few days ago and I still should have about $10 on it. I've had the service for about 4 years, and I've never had this problem before. Usually I can at least access my own account to see what my usage balance is, but I can't even do that.

And what's with the search engine stuff??? My internet service is with Bell, not Telus.

Very strange indeed.

Anyone else try googling those "call failed please try again" under the "Past Hour" time frame search option?

Would be nice if someone did that and let me know if the "Email check" thing comes up on every entry.

Thanks in advance!

Clearly, the person who 1-starred this thread isn't experiencing the twilight-zone telecommunications issues I'm experiencing now.

Please, someone -- use the 'Past Hour' search parameter option on google and see what comes up when you type in the phrase: "call failed please try again".

Thank you thank you thank you thank you! As they say, misery loves company. I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing this, but I'm sorry to hear about your email troubles. Yahoo locked me out of one of my email accounts on Wednesday for about 10 hours for what they called "scheduled maintenance", although I had not received any prior warning that it would occur.

Otherwise, I appear to be able to send emails on my other Yahoo accounts as well as my gmail account.

Or at least for the time being....

You're missing the point. I'm getting a strange phrase that I had not requested inserted into each of my results. This is the phrase I get when I type in "call failed please try again": Email check failed, please try again. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. It appears on every single hit, in the 'past hour' search parameter.

Anyway, obviously it's not widespread so the doom is for the select few only. Lucky us. Phone is still not letting me make or receive calls, and my email results page is giving me whacko phrases. Just another day in the New World Order.

maybe its just your phone?
i can never access any of my stuff its always crashing and asking me to report the crash as if that does anything at all in the first place then the report will crash. GPS messes up a lot too but I'm not the only one who's had their GPS act screwy on their phones its been just about everyone, it gets frustrating. The other day I went to the grocery store with my bf and there were BIRDS EVERYWHERE. straight out of alfred hitchcock it was ridiculous and felt really surreal and scary. They all looked like they didn't know where they were going. checked my compass i keep and the poles didn't seem to be too off, but maybe i wasnt holding it straight enough. is there anyone else's phone you can use or is there a cell repair place close by? they might be able to help

Anytime I have a problem with a service that I pay for, I call the provider directly and get them to do their jobs.

Wow...my phone isn't working...I'll Google it...wow...I don't understand what that has to do with what I want to know...I must post this on a conspiracy site and see what is really wrong with my phone...

lol.

i think OP is just weirded out by the fact that so many things seem to be messing up, but its true if theyre all from the same provider then just contacting them should help. i guess the question i have is, are there weird computer/cell phone anomalies youre experiencing that seem to be interrelated in some way? Or are you just getting a bunch of technical errors for something that could be fixed by troublshooting or calling the company and youre a little paranoid about it?

Re: BREAKING! Cell phone and search engine doom! What the %$#& is going on????
Have you tried calling your provider???

Anytime I have a problem with a service that I pay for, I call the provider directly and get them to do their jobs.

Wow...my phone isn't working...I'll Google it...wow...I don't understand what that has to do with what I want to know...I must post this on a conspiracy site and see what is really wrong with my phone...

vs.

Shit...my phone isn't working again...I'll call Verizon and get them to take care of it!

lol.

i think OP is just weirded out by the fact that so many things seem to be messing up, but its true if theyre all from the same provider then just contacting them should help. i guess the question i have is, are there weird computer/cell phone anomalies youre experiencing that seem to be interrelated in some way? Or are you just getting a bunch of technical errors for something that could be fixed by troublshooting or calling the company and youre a little paranoid about it?

IF I WASN'T PARANOID, WHAT IN GOD'S NAME WOULD I BE DOING ON THIS SITE????

My internet provider is not the same as my cell phone provider, neither of which are connected to Yahoo (as far as I know), so I have three completely (as far as I know) independent telecommunications entities doing strange things with my technology within the past couple of days. Like I said, it could just be a coincidence. Or not.
