    Whenever my 2g phone leaves my wifi connection a message pops up saying, "cellular network not able to activate" does anyone know what is going on? i live in southwest michigan if that helps. is anyone else experiencing such problems?

    I don't live in your area, but I do have family in SW Michigan and everytime I'm there the coverage is kind of spotty. This would be near Bridgman. So, maybe they're just having cell tower problems. AT&T is working here on the east coast though.

    None of the iPhones at my local Apple store were getting service today.

    not in michigan but I did get that error before. like said probably an outage or spotty service where you are at. I think I was on move at time and just put in airplane mode and back on and it worked.

    I'm not sure if this is related, but I just tried to pay my AT&T Wireless bill online and kept getting an error message saying the transaction could not be processed. I tried two different credit cards as well as my chequing account, to no avail. I finally called them and found out that their system was down. The error messages on the Web site never indicated the problem was on their side. :(

    east side of Mi is fine

    I know I remember another thread about a month ago where they were having problems on that side. hopefully it will get fixed soon for you. to make it worse already looks like a another bad Lions year. :rolleyes:
