Vodafone data is down for some phone fans this afternoon, affecting services including WhatsApp and iMessage.

"Customers may find access to mobile data services, such as WhatsApp and iMessage, and some Vodafone systems remain intermittent today", said Vodafone on Twitter. "We’re very sorry that it’s causing inconvenience and we’re working hard to restore full service. We’ll update you as soon as we can."

You can contact Vodafone's customer service team or look out for updates on the @VodafoneUKhelp Twitter account.

Previous Vodafone outages include last year's router error that killed BlackBerry and BBM service, and a 2011 outage after thieves stole network equipment.
