AT&T Service Down: Are You Affected?

By Posted 1 Jan 2010, 14:25

We are hearing reports that the popular U.S. carrier AT&T is currently experiencing problems in some parts of America, we are not yet sure whether AT&T have rectified the problem.

From what we have heard it seems as if AT&T’s service is down in Keller (TX), Los Angeles (CA), Norwalk (CT), Orange County (CA) and Ville Platte (LA), in these areas customers are experiencing problems with 3G and SMS services.

As we hear more about the problem we will try to keep you informed, for further details check out Tech.Spreadit.org’s article.

    I’m affected and I live on the east coast! Since midnight no one is getting the texts I send! I can get but not send I don’t even get a error text the texts I send say they go through but the people I send them to aren’t getting them I have fall bars and 3G so it may not even be anything like in CA but still AT&T needs to get this fixed

  • JWoodBass

    No problems here in Indiana with my 3G iPhone service. Looking forward to Verizon later this year though.

  • christy

    during the new years celebration i was in a city and couldn’t even connect to the net through the edge. Then when leaving 3g service came on for minutes and went back out. This is in gatlinburg, tn. Working fine this morning though.

  • Devon

    We have no service in the Piedmont of NC and haven’t all day! Boo Hoo! I want a rebate!

  • Liz

    I’ve been having problem with my texting too in Tucson, AZ. I get texts hours after they had been sent to me, and mine take forever to send to other people as well.

  • Courtney

    I live in St. Louis, MO after midnight hit. I sent out about 15 text messages. All of them said try again. So I tried again. Around 3am Central Time I got about 15 texts that were timestamped around midnight. I noticed at 7am that I was able to send text messages without any problems.

    My friends reported that they received multiple text msgs from me about 3 sometimes as many as 5.

    No service here in Colorado Springs CO, cannot make or receive call or send or receive text messages, problems started around 5pm MST time.

  • anne

    I thought I would be needing a new phone! My messages were not going out at all new year’s eve and incoming messages were delayed, but then I started receiving the same messages over and over throught the next three hours (after midnight!!!!) I finally had to turn off the sound so I could sleep. Today, Jan 1st, I am still having difficulty sending messages, they just sit in my “outbox”.

    Almost no service at all here in Illinois

  • CTYankee

    I’m a U-verse customer that’s been having a bad time with service probably caused by moisture freezing in the hi-cap wires between my home and the DSLAM. Yesterday they dispatched two trucks to fix my problem.

    I live in New Martinsville, WV and the service has been down since Saturday, February 6th. I’ve heard it won’t be back up until Feb. 27th? Is this true? If it is, I’ll be switching to Verizon.

  • Meghan

    I'm from Portola, CA. There seems to be no service anywhere! What's going on?

  • Jennifer

    I live in Arizona and am affected. Phoenix Tempe Scottsdale …everywhere!!! Completely frustrating! Can’t send a text receieve a text send a call or get calls!!!! Tech support said there are a bunch of towers down in az..so manually connected me to one that is working…this worked for a while…but later same situation…I was told to keep shutting my phone off and turning it on ….this connects me to a new tower…works sometimes but most of the time it takes several tries… Extremely irritating as I don’t have a landline… I was told that when the land lines do get fixed to call att to get a credit added to my account…some how I feel they might pull the whole “we see u used your phone several times that day …it must have worked and therefore we cant credit your account..” the 5 times it did work out of the 100 times tried is def not up to my standards.

  • davepotts21

    from chicago… no service at all

  • L12

    I'm having problems that are not resolved after calling technical support about four times today. This is in San Antonio, TX. Supposedly there are no issues with towers/service in my area however when i was at the mall my phone was working fine. Get home and I can't receive or send calls/no internet. :(

  • Chibiaingeal

    Here it is June 14, 2010. I'm in Northern VA. My iPhone (3G) has been cycling between "E" and "searching…" for the last few hours (as has my coworker's). (And of course, I can't find anything on AT&T's site about any problems, but I'm reading on many sites that the southeast (and/or the east coast?) is having the same problem (and has been since last week)). Truth is I've been having issues like this since last month – especially at home (issues at work too but until today not as bad).

  • guest

    Since June 18, 2010 AT&T cell phone outage in areas of Orange County, VA or towns of Orange, Gordonsville, in central VA. AT&T shows repairs underway, but even now 3 days later, we have only failed calls. Can't even call 611.

  • matt

    Tampa FL- sounds like everyone I know has been without service for almost the whole day now, if you can disable 3G on your phone it seems to be having a good affect if you are looking to make calls.

  • Matt

    Central NC is out

  • Alston

    Rocky Mount North Carolina – out all morning

  • Mike
