    Wednesday, 9-3: It appears there is a very large swath affected by no data from the AT&T network.

    So far there are reports from as far north as Boston and as far West as St. Louis. Hampton Roads/Norfolk is the southern-most location reported to have no data.

    Post your location if you have no data.

    EDIT: This is for both 3G and Edge having no data.

    EDIT 9:46 AM EDT: There are reports that some people have been able to call AT&T and get a credit.

    EDIT 9:52 AM EDT: Engadget item posted

    EDIT 11:58 AM EDT: AT&T has acknowledged (clandestinely) that there is a master trouble ticket: TT000008097189

    EDIT: 1:33 PM EDT: Service appears to be at least partially restored for most affected areas.

    EDIT: 2:08 PM EDT: AP Story on outage quotes AT&T

    Reuters story quotes AT&T spokesman as saying it was a 'routing issue.'

    EDIT: 2:49 PM: Forum poster quotes AT&T CSR as saying they are authorized to give credits of up to 50% of the monthly data plan charge.

    NYC is out of the game as well. At least for myself and a fellow iPhone 3G user.

    No data in Boston on EDGE or 3G. Interestingly, I was just able to get on the web on an at&t blackberry over EDGE. Strange.

    No data on edge or 3g here also. Alexandria, VA down to Indian Head, MD. Also confirmed by a friend with another iphone 3g, no data for him either.

    Does anyone know someone with a non-iphone to see if data is down for them also?

    hmmm...I just text my wife who has data access (email, edge). We both have 1st gen iPhones, but she is still rocking 1.1.4 and I have 2.0.2.

    FYI: This is in the Carlisle/Harrisburg, PA area...

    No EDGE data here in Alexandria, VA.

    And here I am thinking I am going crazy. Figured I'd check Macrumors just in case.
