It is very inconvenient for me to contact with other people.
In the above sentence, it refers to 'the telephone does not work'. Does this sentence make any sense to you? If no, could you help me correct it? By the way, can I change 'other people' to 'the outside'? Thank you.

:up: And change the inconvenient to difficult. (That difficulty may well be inconvenient. But when you say 'it's very inconvenient' you're talking about a preference rather than a physical impossibility: It's very inconvenient for me to drop everything and come right now. (It could also be difficult, but ... [somebody help me out here!]).

somebody help me out here!
My mobile died last night, This will make it very difficult for me to contact my clients.
The landline in my office does not work, which is very inconvenient for me. I left my mobile at home, so I have to go to the next office to use the phone there.
