*UPDATE: Fixed* AT&T currently experiencing major data outage

*UPDATE: Fixed* AT&T currently experiencing major data outage
Reports are flooding in that AT&T users across the East Coast and Midwestern states are without data service.  It seems to be mostly iPhone users (maybe this guy has some grounds after all) but there are a few reports of other devices being affected.  One user on Howard Forums was told by an AT&T technician that it was only iPhones in the NE, but posters as far as Illinois and St. Louis are reporting outages.  Another poster says AT&T told him it was because of Gustav, but for their sake we hope not because if a hurricane in the south can take out your data network across the country then there are big issues.  Either way, major cities like Boston, NYC, Baltimore, Philly, Chicago and StL seem to be affected.  Is it down for you, and what kind of phone do you have?

Update: AT&T is saying the issue was resolved around 12PM EST and was due to a routing problem in the NE.  Users are reporting that the service is back up, but many are still complaining that data speeds are dial-up slow even on 3G.

Actually its on my list of phones I am paying attention to. Its so unfortunately bust your little judmental bubble but I dont worship a piece of technology but I am not going to lie and say that I am not curious about it. And oh yes boy huh? Do you comprehend anything? 'C-Chicki' CHICK! Oh i am sorry I must have to actually state the word boobs for you to reconize that I am a female and yes I actually do something besides domestic BS. Anything else you need to know? Because I'll actuallly state my identity instead of hiding behind being lazy and stating yourself as anonymous.

20. AT & WHAT? unregistered

The iphone is probably one of the best phones I have ever used , The service is garbage!!!! whether its a hurricane or a tornado or an earthquake what does it matter if your towers are still standing and are running above 90% like verizonwireless was during katrina. When was the last time verizonwireless had a problem with their service???? uh uh cant remember, well I know for a fact at&t is raising the bar right up our a@@!!! I think i will go to pick up the dare and call it a day , tired of calling at&t and hearing lies of why their service sucks , If you are going to lie do it right tell me the earthquake in china is causing the problem or what about the mudslide in cambodia is doing it. vzw here i come. service without the bullsh**

AT&T coverage in my area is VERY poor. Verizon Wireless is the top dog. I have the LG Dare and love it. Signal is great!
