    Dont even get an E or 3G symbol,and cannot recieve calls (but can make them, even though they are very garbled and sound like robots).

    Tried a hard reset with no results. Been this way since 12am, and I have missed a couple very important business calls because of it.

    It is starting to get rediculous that there are data outages every few days. AT&T needs to get their crap together. It is not just my phone, but friends AT&T phones in the area too that are not getting data or incoming calls, so it is not just my phone, or specifically with the iphone.

    Im in Grand Haven BTW, but even Grand Rapids doesnt work (just came from there)



    EDIT: Now I am getting 'Your call can not be completed at this time, please try again later'


    This is bullcrap. I am on call 24/7 for my job, and also rely on e-mail for my job. I have already missed two service calls today, and have been yelled at by the boss due to it. With layoffs going the way they are, the last thing I need is for AT&T to be pricks and take down service.

    This is getting old. 16 hours of no service. Thought they had the best and most reliable network according to their advertising....

    Not working for me either in Ann Arbor, MI.
    My wife's 3G Nokia is getting signal. My 2G iPhone just says "Searching..." which suggests to me that the network is there but its not letting my phone connect.

    lmao at the lions

    but yeah here in West Bloomfield we just got it back fully it seems.

    i got kinda pissed about it, but at least it wasn't on a week day because more workers would be out and they would be extremely pissed lol.

    Happy almost new year btw guys!

    Perhaps you should not jump to conclusions.
    AT&T is not out, it's the towers which had a power surge.
    Blame your power company, not AT&T.

    PS, it should be affecting everyone in the upper midwest, WI, IL, IN, MI, and parts of OH.
