Comments on news posted 2008-09-03 10:15:33: Last week an AT&T insider suggested that the sooner that all iPhone users upgraded to the new 2.0.2 update, the sooner iPhone users would be in connectivity nirvana. ..

Called AT&T....

The message said there is a large wait time.

Went through the menus, got to the prompt for data and email issues. Spoke with Anthony, I was polite and told him the issue. He looked it up, and I told him about the websites reporting the issues. He looked it up, confirmed it, and asked if he could do the $25 credit to my account. He said he would credit my account $26.50, was nice about it.

No EDGE network here in downtown Chicago

Thanks AT&T. No marketing spin can cover this up! AT&T is weak.

Yep. I started getting emails sent to me about 15 minutes ago. I did the iphone speedtest here at dslreports.com and the latency probes were through the roof!

@covad.net

just fine in downton d.c.

Don't care about the rest of the metro as long as it works downtown. Maybe a reason for all you suburb people to move back into the city?

iphone only?

Strange... I tested earlier... 3G was working when everyone said it was down.

Now my phone is on Edge... still works.

In midtown NYC.

It's not an iPhone btw.

I'm suspicious that this really is iPhone related and the other phone or two is unrelated typical signal issues.

I think everyone is just oversensitive and assuming the entire cell grid is down. Seen several people with cell phones... no issues. No iPhones though. The trend is certainly interesting.

No problems in Cleveland

Haven't had a problem getting a 3G connection on my Blackjack II all morning here in Cleveland, OH...

I'd love to see a Google map of the affected areas... Seems like an odd section (NY, NJ, Wash. DC, St. Louis) ?

It was already out @5AM in Brooklyn...

...both on my TyTn and W960 when I got up to change my daughter's diaper. AT&T is piece of crap now, officially, after several weeks of slowdown.
What's interesting is that after I turn off the proxy my net seems to be faster - which tells me this PoS sucker provider called AT&T is THROTTLING me back to be able to cope with the influx of all the iPhone retards.

AT&T Network

You get what you asked for. AT&T's network sucks, it sucked when it was Cingular, and it sucked when it was Bellsouth Mobility. Go get a Dare on Verizon and experience no dropped calls, ever.....

Re: AT&T Network

AT&T is a great service and I have never had a problem with them untill I got the iPhone 3G. Anyway I'm at at Hofstra and have had no service for the past hour and it was finicky this morning. 4guys i'm with have the 3G and the same problem

What's New With AT&T?


Same old dropped calls and poor 3G service like usual from AT&T. Another day another place. But no outage here in LA!

I'm still waiting for BB Reports to post a news story when AT&T's network stops sucking all over the place.

Two points.

[gripe]
1. As has been stated previously, this outage was not iPhone-specific; it effected all sorts of data devices. It is puzzling to me that it got reported as an iPhone issue. As popular as the iPhone has been for ATTM, it still constitutes a minority of data-capable devices using ATTM's network.

Perhaps the mods can edit the thread title to something a bit more accurate?
[/gripe]

2. important: The outage was not a general outage. http (web browsing) remained available thoroughout, at least on my device, but applications making other sorts of data connections -- mapping apps, my e-mail client, streaming apps, etc. -- were able to connect to the network but not to transmit/receive data. I think that this aspect of the issue has not been publicized or examined enough, as it implies that ATTM may be doing some things with its network that discriminate based on traffic and/or connection type, and I think this bears looking into.

3G issues in Chicago

I've been having 3G connectivity issues in Chicago downtown and out heading west about 10 miles, for the last few days. Called AT&T and they acknowledged the issue for Chicago and for "surrounding states". Western suburbs seem to be fine.

iPhone keeps reverting to 2G/EDGE network in the effected area.
