T-Mobile says 5% of customers affected by outage
T-Mobile customers across the country have been complaining about having the signal indicator on their phone go from 3G to SOS. Reports have been circulating about it being a local tower issue to being as big as a global outage. On T-Mobile's own web site, a message claims that only 5% of T-Mobile customers are being affected by the service disruptions that the carrier says started at 5:30pm EST. The nation's 4th largest carrier says its' Rapid Response team is hard at work to resolve the issues. If you're a T-Mobile customer, let us know if you lost your service and if you have it back yet.

Most everyone I know in San Diego, CA lost service. Dang T-Mobile is not doing so well this year with their service interruptions. First the Sidekick outage, now this? Whats next? Lets not forget about the past hacked experiences T-Mobile endured.

T-Mobile needed to install more powerful antennas in order to meet customers expectation on signal strength because now some buildings and other areas have no signal. I don't want to walk or drive around searching for signal before I can make a call.

Northeast TN and Southwest VA, former SunCom areas, were out yesterday in places. My Blackberry 8900 wouldn't even send a text during that period, on either the 2G service or UMA. Calling was of course equally non-functional on both as well.

heeyyy! vzw faanman! (Je suis le gars qui vous ont ajouté sur la book de face) yeah that's cuase vzw is the shit and they are a CDMA company. i was one of the 5% that was affected with that outage for T-Mobile. and I live in CT so. but i think it was because they were testing their faster 3G speed or updating coverage or something. if it happens frequently, i may consider switching

T-Mobile claims only 5% of users were affected. . .BS try 100% this was a NATIONWIDE outage!! From Michigan to Florida from New York to California T-Mobile was completely blacked out! Project black was a success. . .you get what you pay for with T-Mobile!

How am i a Verizon fan boy when have AT&T?? Sorry, Maybe you shoulda went to freecreditreport dot com all you could get was flex on Trailer-Trash Mobile! AT&T and Verizon don't get hacked, they don't lose customer data and they both have much better coverage than T-Mobile.
