    Just got off the phone with AT&T wifi support.

    If anyone else is having problems with their 3G/EDGE connections and lives on the west coast (Specifically CA, OR, WA and Northern NV), there's an outage that's expected to last until about 2AM tomorrow.

    When is this supposed to happen? So far 3G here still works (WA) and haven't seen a message on my OLAM yet. I hate DATA outages...

    OP said it's west coast, so it's also on the east coast? :confused:

    Dunno, I know there was one 2-3 days ago, maybe it's more widespread than I knew.

    I live in Vegas as well and I am a developer and have had MMS since the release of beta 2 of the new 3.1 OS. No hacks, no calling AT&T or any of the other tricks on the forum. So Vegas is ready for MMS it's just AT&T releasing a 4.5 carrier file or Apple releasing 3.1 which ever comes first

    Yeah, my family was having issues up there earlier so good to hear. Working here now in OC, too.

    (PS - That's funny, your location says OC but you're in Reno, while I'm originally from Reno and live in OC.)

    I did notice a bit of slowing around 4:00pm in the East Bay near Berkeley Downtown BART station, and I couldn't get my emails, so I shutoff my 3GS and didn't turn it back on 'til I got home at about 7:15pm and I had about 20 emails and 10 text messages and 5 MMS, by then I was on WiFi. Spent most the day in San Francisco, so I didn't notice an outage....:confused:

    It is still very slow for me @ 8am in the S.F. Bay Area. I'm on solid 3G, but it certainly doesn't feel like it.

    This is OLD NEWS. It was posted already..... hours ago.

    It DOES seem to be up and down in the Houston Area. I was just doing a Speedtest and 3G went dead for about a minute, and now back up. Speed is very erratic between tests.
