So Vodafone screwed up, and rather than doing what normal people would do (updating the post with a note that says sorry we screwed up) they deleted it and pretend it never existed, using the catch-all phrase "technical issues" to describe what went wrong.

"Samsung's people have been trying to get an answer out of their execs since Friday, but they've been hard to reach in part because they're in court on an Apple-related matter."
I'm sure that there will be a solution to the emergency call problem, if there actually is one; but a problem that seems to be hard to solve is the ridiculous antics of the mobile phone manufacturers in their continuing patent wars.
Result, problems that may affect users are going to be slow in getting fixed, highly paid executives are going to be sitting around in lawyers' offices and court rooms and a general slowdown in actually getting on with what they are paid to do, i.e. run the company.
Surely this is no way to run a business.
