fred says:

Confirm . No datas available this am in between Stamford and NYC between 6:30am and 7:30am

PSM says:

OK now in the Boston area, but it sounds like I slept through the outage. Whew!

Joel says:

Yea. I had trouble connecting this morning from 7Am to 8Am in Boston. After 8Am, I was able to connect to the data network.

donna says:

Very spotty in Omaha, using wi-fi instead (8:30am)

Psyko825 says:

James says:

3G/EDGE went out in Brooklyn at 3:45am. service restored at 8.

Dan says:

I was working last night in West Chester, PA. I was unable to connect from 3:20 am until at least 7 am when I went to bed.

ZWizard666 says:

Yes, my 3G/EDGE signal was offline during the early morning hours. At first, I was extremely puzzled, as I switched on/off "airplane mode" and removed/reinserted my SIM. Then, I called At$t, and I was informed that an "outage" had occurred. I was quite relieved when my service was restored at approx. 8AM. This has never happened to myself before, but I am pleased that this was a regional matter...

Jamie says:

my data in VA was out but restored around 8. thank god.

sting7k says:

Fine all morning north of Washington, DC.

Caballera says:

That's strange.. It's 10:37am now and this is the first I heard about an outage. I'm off of work today, but my gf is working and left the house at 7:30am and was texting me all morning, with the first one coming in at 7:34am EST and texting me on her commute. We're on Staten Island, but we work in the city, she's up just SE of Central Park today.

Cory says:

No problems over here in Boston, 3G and Wifi all day everyday!

Moises Lopez says:

Ben says:

Never had any problems here in Baltimore, MD.

Fuzzy says:

Hmmm, I just had some trouble with 3G about 15min ago (Reading, PA area). Rebooted iPhone and all was okay. Came to TiPB hoping for a TomTom release announcement :D but saw this post...

Greg says:

3G is down in Chicago.

Dmys says:

Northwest Chicago 3G is fine.
To rest of you who lost it, HAHA :P

Drifter says:

Some needs to tell the genius with the girlfriend that's texing him all morning around central park that SMS (text messaging) runs off your cell network. I'm sure everyone was aware that they could have still made and recieve calls.

Bret says:

Had to run on WiFi after 3am and 3G came back about 9am here in Kansas City

Scott says:

Had full bars 3G at the Oakland, ca airport and also in visilia, ca. Couldn't connect from 7:00-9:00 am local. Seems to be hit and miss.

Pete says:

Hello, I live in a state where all technology ends until the politicians figure out a way to make a few bucks to support our welfare system, WEST VIRGINIA!
so no 3g here, yet? Oh come on year 2020!

Theo says:

No connection just outside of Boston today from about 6 to 8. Absolutely nothing.

Chad says:

I'm in Portland, Oregon. Service restored sometime between 10-11 am.

Greg says:

3G Service restored in Chicago

Strings N. Cans says:

Been out in Daytona Beach, Florida since before 1pm stlli nothing. Anyone have an update? AT&T web site not very user friendly.

Eric Shepherd says:

Here in Knoxville, TN, my 3G seems to be down still.

Jamie says:

I just talked to an AT&T business care rep and she said the techs said it's going to be 48 hours for all services to be restored back to normal. mine has been going on and off all day here in VA. she also said it's mostly effecting VA MD WV and DC.

Wajih says:

Somebody tell homeboy in Oakland, CA that this outage was not in the West but in the Midwest and Northeast..

bobbyp5 says:

In Ohio it was on and off. I was really confused until I read this

Ben says:

To think I almost restored my iPhone this am when I lost data. Getting tired of at&t. Knew it was weak when I joined. Just gotten worse since.

rw says:

service still down in pittsburgh, pa

scott says:

@Waj Homeboy here... I've been dealing with not being able to get on the net with my phone all day. Maybe its a separate issue, but when I saw this post, figured I could be amongst the unfortunate.

Steve says:

@Scott you're not alone. I'm in the south Bay area and had no data service for most of yesterday. It was restored in the evening but now it seems to be out again.

toyboy says:

My wife and I have been experiencing problems with both EDGE & 3G since yesterday. We are right outside of Nashville, TN. Very frustrating to say the least.

Tommy says:

In NW Massachusetts, no service has been restored. Affecting everyone I know with AT&T.

Mike says:

3G network down in Minneapolis/St. Paul today, really frustrating as I need GPS today. I can't believe they're having so many issues across the US!

Brendan says:

In Chicago, still unable to connect to a 3G network. I've been stuck on Edge for the last few days - and even that has been spotty.

Brian says:

In Detroit, the network has been up and down all weekend. It's currently completely down, and it was down for a few hours this afternoon, and for about an hour last night.

Brian says:

My service was just temporarily restored. I called 611, and they informed me that there is an outage in Detroit, and service will not be fully restored until August 3rd. I asked them if they planned on crediting my account for the outage, and the customer service representative gave me a $25 credit on my next bill.

ShyGuy says:

Am from Charlotte, NC and 3G has been fluctuating since morning. I almost got my phone replaced thinking it was a device issue.
Anyone else having trouble with 3G in NC?
Any idea by when this will be fixed?

Leo says:

I am from the Philly area, and my 3G service has been out since Aug. 1st. My Edge service was initially working, but it's gone as well. AT&T did not give an ETA on fix but asked me to check back with 24-48 hrs. Very disappointed with their service. I, for one, will jump immediately to verizon once Apple's exclusive deal with AT&T ends.

Live&Learn says:

Called AT&T on Saturday around 3:00 PM for outage in Raleigh NC. Received a recorded reply that service would be restored by August 3rd. Looks like that's on target. No dial tone or service as of Sunday at 5:32 PM.

Live&Learn says:

Just got a dial tone in Raleigh NC @ 6:33 EST.

Anubis says:

Grrrrr New Phone "3G" now lousy service ?
I want a refund for the past 3 days of no data.....

G says:

I'm in Boston, I don't have 3G connection at all as of now, 611 doesn't work neither

Brett Q. says:

I have 3G service finally, but it is probably slower than Edge right now. I really hate AT&T here in SC.

Joshua says:

I am still having problems with the Edge network. I live in MN.

Tim says:

iPhone data (internet, email, etc.) in Knoxville, TN still very spotty. Only hit and miss. Cannot hardly connect to a website, and 3G seems to be down totally.

Ben says:

Has anybody in the Raleigh/Durham area been having problem with 3G service since the 3.0 update? it seems like 9 out of 10 times trying to connect with 3G on any app including email and safari it doesn't work. Pissing me off something fierce!

Matt says:

Still no 3G or EDGE data for me in Boston.

Brian says:

Service is still going up and down in Detroit. When I say "service", I mean everything. I currently have no voice, no data, no text. This makes four days of very spotty service. They claimed service would be restored some time today. If this continues into tomorrow, I'm going to demand a 25% reduction in my bill, and if I don't get it, it's off to the better business bureau again. I just wish a decent carrier would start doing business in the United States. I've been on five different carriers in ten years, and they're all terrible.

Ben says:

Posting again about the Raleigh/Durham 3G service- Just contacted AT&T and of course they won't admit their network is having troubles. I've called 3 times counting today since 3.0 update and so they credited my account for $30. They claimed that "mother nature" could be at fault for the spotty service I've been having (yes, I did laugh at the service rep when they said that). They also wouldn't even comment on the outages across the eastern U.S. when I brought it up; then again I shouldn't be surprised bc in there minds everything is perfect and it's all a "user erorr."

Tripp says:

No data in Raleigh this morning.

Amp had says:

St. Petersburg. No 3G. 2nd time I got this from AT&T(supposedly raising the bars in all places)?happened last night about around 1:00am. It's 9:12 and I have a perfect edge connection but no 3G. Damn AT&T you guys suck! Any other carriers you guys known had an outage problem like this before? I don't wanna hear some BS someone told me like AT&T tryna update for iPhone tethering and mms.

Shawn says:

Yeah, 3G service in Nashville, TN (let the redneck jokes begin) is down... can't do anything on my phone! Freaking AT&T! Aargh!

Tyler says:

Full 3G in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but no data.

John says:

Livermore CA Area (it's where you stop for gas on the way to San Francisco heading westbound) 3g since about 10am this morning. Data and voice are working but signal is utterly useless at these speeds.

Aaron says:

San Mateo CA (greater SF Bay Area, south of SFO) 3G since this morning.

Patrick says:

San Mateo/San Francisco area, no 3g for about 3 hours now from what i've noticed, maybe even longer is what im hearing. Thanks. Hope someone fixes it soon.

John says:

SF Bay Area seems to be working (at least out here in Livermore.) Since about 4pm.

Istvan says:

No 3G in Palm Springs as of 10:30 pm Aug 4th still waiting....

John says:

My 3G is down and I'm in Southern California. The network seems to have crashed between 10pm and midnight.

John says:

I'm in Riverside, CA

Kat says:

I'm very upset, I live in Palm Springs also and I've had no service all night. Frustrating is an understatement. :/

pvd says:

Tried to get directions to a vet hospital cause my cat was puking a lot. Boston, 6pm. Nothing. 3G hasn't been working for days.

Ozzy says:

No 3G accessibility. Chesapeaks Bay area, Maryland. 9 am.

adam says:

AT&T no service for my I Phone and my wireless card no data no service , but I must pay

adam says:

Sorry I am in SouthEast Florida not having service on iphone and my wireless card

Christian says:

No data on 3G or Edge on Long Island, New York. Suffolk county to be exact. No data, I can send texts, ect.

donr says:

No 3G service in Austin TX. Honestly, I don't know how long it has been down since I seldom use it anymore. It's extremely unreliable here, texting and calling often don't work on it, and so I mostly rely on WiFi (in the office) and EDGE (everywhere else). I can't believe there is no front page information about this at HORRIBLE horrible customer service.

Jon says:

My cell service as well edge/3G has been on again off again since last night and is just now starting to stabilize here in Colorado.

James says:

No 3G service here in park slope Brooklyn. Full Edge, but no bars for 3G then it just switches to Edge. I always usually have full 3G up until a couple days ago.

Gianni Fazio says:

Today is august sixth it is 6am and I guess there is another service outage

Jim says:

In Chicago. 3G switches to Edge after a few minutes of tethering last night 8/6 and today 8/7. WTF?!

Kari says:

Have not been able to connect for about 3 or 4 days now. I am in the Detroit area.

iCampus says:

I am not getting any data via 3g or edge in North Carolina (RTP), even though I have 5 bars ... using 3GS

Chef says:

I'm in Las Vegas, NV. 3g has been off and on since Thursday. Mainly off, great signal but no data comes through. Luckily if I turn 3g off edge works fine.

Maddie says:

i'm in southampton NY and i cant connect. i have no service...

Harry says:

No Edge service in Greer, SC today (8/8). Spotty service since 8/6, AT&T claims there is no outage.

Gwen says:

I live in Austin, TX andI just got a brand new at&t phone with 3G. I keep getting Call Failed: Network Busy.

Scott says:

Last Friday no 3g in Charlotte. Now just checked again and no 3g as of 1:15 pm. Edge is working though

Summer says:

3G not working here in Las Vegas, hasn't been working for a couple days. WTF is going on, I hate using Edge! :(

Carlos says:

Ditto here on the Vegas outage. Shows full signal strength on 3g but won't connect. Works only when 3g radio is off (edge connection). First noticed this on Friday, and it's been intermittent since (mostly not working though). Called up buisness support who went through plenty of checks of the network, so she said, and she reported no problems and finally reffered me to apple support. FYI, besides occasional hiccups,I've always had a solid connection here in Vegas.

Dan says:

Outside Philly - can occasionally make or recieve calls. Usually just goes to call failed message or connects, shows timer, but no connection. Can still text and use internet

Brad says:

I'd like to concur with Dan. I work about 25 miles outside of Philly and I did not come into the office yesterday. Seems the problem still exists today and I called AT&T to confirm. They told me this issue has been ongoing since yesterday and in the CSE's "professional" opinion it would be fixed sometime today. Not very specific...

Phillip says:

Count me in as another frustrated Las Vegas user. My 3G hasn't been working for over a week. Went to the Apple store with my phone and they said it appeared my phone was having problems so they gave me a brand new one (which I did not compalin about). That didn't solve the problem. The 3G network works only like 10% of the time. I usually have to switch to EDGE to surf the Internet. WTF is the purpose of having a 3GS if I can't reliably use the 3G network? Oh and don't get me started about the fact that they are still charging us for the 3G data use even though we can't use it. I hate AT&T. Oh well, at least I got a brand new 3GS out of it...

mike says:

WTF!!!!! I'm out un Vegas too and got nothing on the 3G network either. I thought it was couse of my phone but now after hearing all of the fellow Vegasites I know ATT is total BS. I hate HATE!!! egde coverage. I would of never bought this iPhone and moved from Verizon if I knew there was going to be this many issues. I never had a issue with verizon. maybe nexttime I'll hit up sprint :)

Ethan says:

In cedar rapids, Iowa I can't connect.

Joey says:

Yeah like Mike says WTF!! i'm in Vegas and am having a shit load of trouble connecting to the internet, even though my iphone 3gs shows full bars and 3g on it...this is really starting to piss me off!! i thought it was just my phone but after reading some of these comments i guess i'm not alone!!

Katie says:

can not make calls or receive them tonight in detroit metro area. is anyone else have the same issues? spoke with emergency customer service and was informed that they were aware of the problem in the area and were working to restore service. they could not promise it would be restored in the next day. i am outraged.

Andrew says:

no 3G in greater cincinnati area. UGH!

Josh says:

iowa city, iowa no edge or 3g, can still make/recieve calls and texts

Ben says:

As of 9:04PM PST, 3G network not working in Las Vegas Area; although Edge is working (2G). I called AT&T and they are pretending that there's nothing wrong. Make sure you ask for a "credit" on the 3G service that is not working. They gave me a $30 credit for the cost of the monthly internet fee.

Josh says:

just got edge back, it was only down for about an hour here in iowa city

Poppa says:

Middle of Colorado - no service

Charles says:

No service an hour north of Seattle - can't make calls, can connect to wireless Internet (no wifi). Is it supposed to go "out" like that?

Skybunny says:

Same here. I'm currently visting the Las Vegas area and my girl and I both have iphones with no internet. Our phones have full bars on 3G but nothing internet related loads. We stopped by a ATT store and they told me that the whole 3G network was down and that it would be back up at midnight tonight. (Aug 11th 2009-Pacific time.)

Shane says:

I've ha data services but it's been jumping from 3G, to Edge, to no service? And usually I get edge in my house?!?!? I've called 3-5 times about it! I'm considering switching to sprint or verison? AT&T hasn't been pleasing me, 105$ a month for this type of service sucks!!!

Sally says:

have a 3G signal in Wilmington, DE but no data comes through... been acting weird since monday

Ian says:

Las Vegas 3g has been crap for me since Friday. I show full bars but get no Internet connection, works maybe 10% of the time

Adam D. says:

I'm in Las Vegas/Henderson and I only just recently noticed that my 3G hasn't been working since Monday morning. My phone shows all five bars along with the 3G, but anything Internet related barely works on it. Edge works fine, but what's the point of having the 3GS if we can only get slower data from it?! This is really frustrating for me as my iPhone is what I pretty much use to connect to everything on the go. I hope this gets solved quickly or I'm gonna go insane.

Nick g says:

Another frustrated las Vegas user, 3g works in some areas of town but not at all in the southwest or Henderson. Will be calling to get my 30$ credit...

Gary says:

I've had 3G data problems in and around the Las Vegas area for over a week now. I called business support three times now and finally last night they admitted they had a problem but wouldn't say when they would have things back up and running.

Cat says:

Same here - frustrated Las Vegas user. It sucks but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one!

jose says:

I also live in Las Vegas/Henderson area and internet has been up and down since friday for me. I think that new "Clear" internet thing is f***ing up our air waves.

Ben says:

Since I posted last night, my 3G works intermittently. Then I received this e-mail from AT&T and this is what it says: Great News - Coverage in Las Vegas, NV just got better! We want you to be the first to know! We've built a new cell site at Hualapai and Hacienda in Las Vegas, NV. It's just a part of our commitment to provide improved wireless coverage with a stronger signal and better overall reception.
With better coverage on the nation's fastest 3G network, there's never been a better time to be an AT&T customer.
We thank you for your continued loyalty and look forward to sharing more great news again soon.

TheNatural says:

I've been working with AT&T support and they confirmed they performed an update of their network in Las Vegas on Thursday 8/6/09 and since then no data is passing on their 3G network even though you get good signal strength. They advise disabling 3G and using edge until they get the issue resolved.

hanvo says:

I confirm that in vegas there is a prob with the 3g. Ive called many times and finally got through to tech support and they had to tell me the truth that there was a 3g outage, so i took buddys idea and called back to tell them they better credit me for all four of my iphone 3gs. They credit me 120 for this month and if they are doing this till next month i will expect another credit to be made. If everyone with problems call them they will fix it faster if not i dont think they will ever fix this. This has been a problem her for almost 2 weeks. Thats ridiculous what if i was a realestate agent and need to send emails or photos of homes... this is just poor customer service on ATT. They could have at least messaged everyone and told us they need to be down on 3g for a bit and would be back at so and so time instead we get left in the dark.

Mark says:

Vegas still out as of Aug. 13 10:30am
I was told by phone support to go get a new sim card, but at the AT&T store they would not do it and said there were known issues being worked on. No fix date given. I also called back today and got a $60 credit for our two Iphone plans.

Nick g says:

Called yesterday to ask for a credit and they refused. Will be calling back tommorrow to demand, not ask. Issue persists.

Mark says:

All seems to work now as of yesterday afternoon.

otinkyad says:

I'm in Iowa City, Iowa, where data connectivity means EDGE -- 3G hasn't arrived here yet. I had no data connectivity at all on Tuesday 8/18 from about 6:00-11:00 PM (no "E" symbol at all). I called AT&T customer service, they said they did have numerous similar reports from Iowa. Connectivity came back by 11:00 pm that night and I've had an "E" continuously since then. But Edge speeds have been erratic since then, mostly very slow. Today it's super-slow, including periods when it's basically not working, even though I have an "E" showing. I've been with AT&T for a long time, and have been fairly satisfied, but as others said, this is unacceptable. I'm very likely to try Verizon whenever the Verizon iPhone comes out.

otinkyad says:

Correction to my previous post -- I've had connectivity problems since Tuesday 8/11, not since Tue 8/18 :)

Meg says:

No connectivity in Queens, NYC - what gives? Has been spotty since midnight, and completely vanished at 2:30AM. WTF.

Retlaw says:

CT up and down for Aug 12th. Still up and down form moment to moment.

Lisa says:

No service on my Iphone. Cannot make a phone call nor receive.

Mark Mathis says:

At&t network data is out .... haven't been able to connect all morning. Wonderful

Chris Murray says:

No data as of 1:15 p.m. in the Baltimore/Frederick, Maryland area.

Tyler M says:

No service at all in Somerset, NJ. AT&T confirmed an outage in Northern NJ and NYC.

Jessica says:

Having issues. It all started around 1:30pm. I called they told me to switch to the "edge" network....

Jessica says:

Location is morris county, NJ

Iowa city no ev-do says:

No edge for at least a day now in Iowa city. As of 8/21 there's 5 bars in my apt. as usual but no data access.

Larry says:

No service at all in Allentown, PA (eastern PA ~30 mi from NJ.) Attempt to call received "Emergency calls only" msg on phone displ. Outage started on Wed, Aug 19th pm and still down Fri, Aug 21 am. Calls to AT&T serv. tech. got recorded msg "Due to high call volume, expect long wait time." or something to that effect. Finally got serv. tech. on line and was instructed to remove cell battery & SIMM card. He reset service as if establishing new service, then we reinstalled batt & SIMM. Powered up cell and now it works again as of 10:30am Fri 8/21.

WAH says:

Ok. I have had just about enough of the self-entitled attitude of you people. The real problem is this. Wireless service is never goig to be 100% perfect because humans made the technology. That being said, all you people that complain about service being out for a time period or perhaps dropped calls at times, understand that none of the whining and carrying on like self-entitled monkeys (your Prez OBAMA says everyone should have a level playing field... that guy is a effing retard)and behaving like someone stole your favorite toy while playing in the sandbox when you were 3 years old, should stop bitching about being without service once in awhile. Really.... go get a real life and do something other than burying your head into a IPHONE or Blackberry. Try actually spending some QT with people instead of faceless conversations and "Tweeting" about what the eff you had for lunch today or that you wore a red shirt today instead of a blue one... Our society is going in the crapper quick.

Chance says:

James says:

Connecticut - Central/Hartford. Assume it's 3G outage. Getting no service on and off today. All day. New Sim card. Still problem. Trying to run off 3g see what happens.

Kelli says:

3G was down yesterday (not sure when it went down, I noticed it after work 6pm EST) and has been constant Edge network still (9:38pm EST) in the Boston, MA area. Anyone have any clue when 3G will be restored? My iPhone deserves the good stuff!

dan says:

Service outage in hendersonville/asheville nc area know that they were doing work to the towers would like to know more

London Lunoux says:

At&t has had no service for phone or text for any phone device at all, in part of NE Portland since the middle of December. They provide no customer service, would not acknowledge it was a service problem and not a phone problem (we have 5 of us so far with different phone models who cant get service as well as friends who cannot either while in area), and when they finally agreed to fix it after going into the downtown store it has STILL not been fixed. This area has been out of service off and on but almost always off, for going on 3 months now! This is completely unacceptable. The case number is Cm011410_842241. You can call and add your number to this!

London Lunoux says:

So in response to your update NO!!!!! It HAS NOT been fixed in Portland Or.

10 minute solution dvd says:

I reading something else regarding this on another weblog. Interesting. Your own position on this is diametrically contradicted to what We read in the. I'm still reflecting more the actual reverse points of look at, however I am tipped heavily toward yours. And regardless, that's what is so extremely about sophisticated democracy and the marketplace associated with ideas on-line.

Charles Heron says:

Still no service in Green Bay, Wisconsin, 1130am 5/15/2010

Service outage in Pittsburgh Pa, July 29th 2 am

Mccall Debra says:

I lost a lot of contacts on my iPhone which was synced to gmail. strange. I found many of my contacts on gmail in "other contacts" whatever that is bc when I typed in search 'other contacts" it couldn't find them, but if I typed in a contact I had that was not appearing, it would come up as stored under "other contacts."

Cbteague says:

Still having service interruptions, Long Island, NY - Monday 7/25 @ 1 AM. AT&T customer service said "they are aware of the issue and are working to correct it" but that there was no information about how long the interrupted service will last. I was given a $25 credit to my wireless account for the "inconvenience" cause due to the service interruptions.

bigdog says:
