I had a sudden internet failure
Pretty much every modern phone will be able to access the site on the internet so use that first if possible.
No need to use the phone browser or the BF app.

Get a $5 wireless dongle for your the pc. (no need on a laptop)
When Internet goes down, flip your phone into Hotspot mode. (not sure about ios but on android it's easy, settings>connection etc)
Change your PC/laptop connection to the wireless hotspot instead of wired.
BA continues as though nothing has happened.
Close your positions.

It's another impressive thing about BA, it copes really well with a change of connection, but your browser might need a restart to reattach.

Thanks for the replies - seems as I suspected rather a poor experience all round trying to trade using the phone.

Of course, this would only ever be a last resort in any case.

Loving the experience posted about trying to close out inplay over the phone, can just imagine :lol:
