But.. Why doesn't anything happen? WTF, network connectivity off!?

But wifi seems ok.. Should i reboot the "phone" (small tablet computer with also a minor phone function)?

OMG!!! Battery went out! And I'm in the dark. Usually I just use the phone's LED flash..

I'm shaking now due to adrenaline kicking in.

This is the worst nightmare ever.

Dial 112.. Oh no..

(That last one is quite realistic, as I often have rebooted my router only to proceed to try to do some web surfing in the meantime...)
