Any problem with your AT&T iPhone service today?

How's your AT&T iPhone service today?

TiPb's getting a bunch of reports from people saying they've been having problems with their AT&T service today. Network problems are nothing new, and any huge network will have intermittent problems from time to time and place to place, but the number of reports today are out of the ordinary so we figured we'd ask the TiPb Nation.

Where are you, are you having AT&T problems, and if so, what kind and for how long have you been experiencing them? And... Go!

Yep, called AT&T this morning after having three days of slower than normal data speeds, they said they weren't aware of any slow downs, told me to have apple check my phone.

My service in Northeast Texas doesn't seem any worse than usual. The usual lack of widespread 3G in my area does interfere with Siri but that's normal

Well, look at it this way, it could be worse. If you had a crappy phone like a BB, you'd be without service completely (short of phone calls) until it got fixed. At least with a real smartphone you can sap some data route via WIFI and be fine since you don't depend upon the carrier or another NOC to filter all your Internet traffic. You can't do that with a BB.

My 3G here in Bowling Green, KY has been slower than EDGE the last few days. Restarting the phone doesn't help.

AT&T has the worst customer service and technical service ever. I have been calling AT&T for the past 7 months complaining about the same issues repeatedly. The issues I have been complaining about are dropped calls daily, sending receiving text, and super slow data speeds. AT&T continued to promise up until last week that 3G is being installed in Sierra Vista, Az (which is where I live). There technical service dept. has told me every time that there is currently 3G towers within Sierra Vista, Az and have not been activated. Problem with the dropped calls are that I will have 4-5 bars and my service just goes blank. After talking to technical support last week, their representative supervisor told me that they would no longer provide me technical service or try to solve my matters unless I update my iPhone to the latest iOS. Now they cannot refuse to assist me for services that I have been paying for.

No issues here in San Diego. Just got 5.35 down, 1.11 up. I did have a problem connecting to data on Monday night, but a power cycle on the phone fixed that.
P.S. Wayyy faster than EV-DO on Verizon or Sprint

I've been having calling issues on my at&t 4S the last few days both sending and receiving. When a call is made it will ring on the other end but I won't hear anything. I know it connects because the timer is active. When receiving a call my phone will ring but I won't hear anything once I answer. It sometimes takes multiple attempts to make or receive calls.

3G has been horrible yesterday and today in Des Moines, IA, called AT&T and they said they are aware of network issues, how about fixing newtork issues?

I'm in north east Indiana. Had some serious issues yesterday but seems better, still little spotty, today.

I have had nothing but issues since sunday but then again we are under a state of emergency. ATT also lost over 200 towers due to the storm.

For the last day or two in Louisville, KY, data works as fast as ever when it works (~5mbps down, ~1 up), but more often than not, data transfers will stall in mid-stream, making sites stop loading, requiring several refreshes, etc. Right now doesn't appear to be a particular problem, but early this morning and yesterday evening were particularly bad. I couldn't even Mark the Spot.

Well, except billing issues. We had those every month for two years... Got tired of being on hold with Verizon customer (dis)service every time we got a new erroneous bill, so we ditched them.

I have horrible service at my apartment, and have for the last three days, but I think that's probably the result of the freak storm knocking out power here in western MA. Service is normal in most other places.

No problems in the Memphis, TN area. Drove from Memphis to Oxford, MS and back streaming Pandora the whole way - about 3 hours of driving through urban and rural areas. Not a single hick-up.

Calls have been fine and messaging seems unaffected but data has been almost non existent in Memphis tn for a few days

Had issues this morning in new York and a week or two ago. Both times the phone went searching for a good 10 minutes on and off

Super super slow browsing and data transmission for 2-3 weeks now. Seems to be getting worse.. half the time i give up on my search cause it takes so long. Comet elinin disruption ?? Haha :)

Phone service with att on iphone is so bad in denver I try not to use my phone. I text and email. I rarely can get on 3g network so turn it off. Much of the time I end up on the E network. I have several dropped calls per day and not one of my calls gets completed w/o some drop out. My service was much better 3 years ago. I think too many iphones and smart phones are more than these networks can really handle. My problems started in Feb 2011. I have called multiple times to complain and have gotten some credits but the problem is still there.

Im in Denver and mine does the same thing. I do all the resets everyday just to get a few minutes of usage. Also on my second sim card and have had multiple talks with AT&T. They just laugh at the number of dropped calls I average a day. Do you also get numerous random voicemails? It seems to have different problems every couple of weeks. Try to call and lose all service; not have service at all; the new one this week is watching my bars go from full and 3G down to searching, then climb back up, then back down. Did that in 5 min increments while outside the city next to one of their towers.

Today ATT data download speed was pathetic, it has 3 bars on 3G. Dont know something wrong in Tallahassee, Florida

when sending a photo via text message (from the camera roll),my Iphone 4s crashes-returns me to the home page- about 60-80% of the time. Apple switched out my phone & SIM card- it still crashed, & the Apple rep also has ATT & that phone crashed as well when sending pic

Sloooow data since march 27 called att hour of tech support for them to admit they have a problem there aware of it since march 27 but they cant find where the problem is

Today is Thursday, April 24, 2014. I live in a small town-city
called Laguna Woods in South Orange County, CA.
I have been attempting to connect to the AT&T Network since 8 am. It is now 9:43. This is so frustrating. Why is this happening and how long will the wait be for a connection today?
I will be anxiously awaiting a reply.
Thank you,
Kathleen Belmonte
