When connectivity is lost using the mobile chat, a modal box politely indicates this. The issue is, while the box is dismiss-able, it will immediately reappear if connectivity has not been reestablished.

This is problematic when I know I have no connection (elevator, basement, bomb-shelter) but intend on reading the conversation up to the point of connection loss, as the modal box is quite intrusive.

I'm proposing a fix to temporarily disable connectivity notifications that could be reset when connectivity has been reestablished.

A workaround I frequently use: If you dismiss it and then scroll back up really fast it appears out of the way of the bit you've probably already read. – Flexo Jun 15 '13 at 19:49
@Flexo That's the workaround I use too; despite the fun in the test of dexterity, I think we can do without the mini-game ;) – Dan Lugg Jun 15 '13 at 21:32
