Full service back at T-Mobile following outage
The last few days a few popular apps have run into some weather-related issues that have prevented the apps from working at times. Picture sharing social app Instagram, video streamer Netflix, virtual bulletin board Pinterest and others were the unhappy beneficiaries of satellite related server problems, some of which were brought on by the bad weather in the region. On Monday, it was T-Mobile that was having problems connecting customers to its network.

In a statement, the nation's fourth largest carrier said that it was a network data issue that prevented its customers from starting a data session using its 3G or 4G pipeline, and some of its customers had intermittent data connectivity. According to the carrier, its rapid response engineering teams quickly resolved the problem. The carrier didn't identify the cause of the issue. It certainly had nothing to do with the T-Mobile U.K. customer who went crackers on Monday, considering the network outage was in the States, not overseas.
"T-Mobile experienced a network data issue Monday night that affected service for some customers with a 3G or 4G device. Some customers were not able to initiate a data session, or experienced intermittent data connectivity. T-Mobile’s data service has been fully restored. Rapid response engineering teams identified and resolved the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience."-T-Mobile statement

Wow, T-mobile. First a gay brittish godzilla wanabee trashed one of your stores and now you have network data outages? I'm taking my Xperia S off your network and placing it back on at&t.

Not sure if you were going for sarcasm or a mind boggling display of idiocy.

Well my data connection went from 4g to disconnected status for like 20-25 minutes and I freaked. I started calling customer service within the first 6 minutes that I found my mobile status read disconnected. But I assume a lot of people were all ready calling as I would only get a recording saying that all the lines were busy. But really less than 30minutes and bam back online, fast reponse indeed.
