     "The phone system is almost useless" is perhaps less accurate than
     "the one person I have talked to has reported some problems with his
     office handsets" :)

I think in the Australian experience "the mobile phone system is
useless" was pretty accurate for at least an hour after midnight.
Landlines coped much better. For the places yet to experience 1/1/00 I
would suggest that if you need to keep in touch with your NOC (or
whatever) then be near a landline and give the mobile a night off.
