    Thought I'd start a new thread to cover the entire country. So far data outages as far west as Chicago, as far south as Alexandria VA, and as far North as Boston. I'll update this post as we get more info.

    Neither EDGE nor 3G about 20 miles north of Boston, MA.
    It shows that I have 5 bars of coverage, but it won't let me connect.

    GRR :mad:

    Who should one call about this issue? Apple or AT&T?

    3G and EDGE are both dead in Upper and Midtown Manhattan by my account. Amazing.

    Edit: Confirmed this with a coworker's 1st-gen phone as well.

    No data here in NYC. I tried in Queens and Manhattan. Friend with iPhone 3G also confirming the same thing.

    Great job, AT&T!

    Greater Harrisburg, PA is out. Can only assume the same for other areas of PA as well...

    from sheepshead bay, brooklyn all the way to midtown manhattan DEAD!

    Thought it was just my iphone as i just updated to 2.0.2 last night. Started cussing the update all morning. Good to know it's AT&Ts fault as I'd hate to wait in line for a new iphone.

    No coverage in southwestern Connecticut (Danbury all the way to Stamford).

    Seems like it's iPhone-related because I can get a data connection on my 3G ATT laptop card.

    Just got off the phone with AT&T now, and talked with a tech support person. He filed a filed "trouble ticket" so the network engineers would know and said it is a noted outage and is specifically with the iPhone.

    Just called AT&T to ask for a credit and they wanted me to go through "troubleshooting" even though everyone's phones are simultaneously acting up.

    I'll call back later--I imagine within the next few hours they're gonna be swamped with irate customers and will have a better response system in place.

    No data service on either EDGE or 3G in Manhattan, New York. I tried both upper west side and midtown but no success.

    The last time that my mail accounts were fetched was 3:10am EDT, Sep. 3th.

    No Data

    In York, PA there is no EDGE or 3G. Despite what maps say, 3G is new to this area.

    Nada for me in Manhattan near Madison Square Park. Pathetic.

    Last email update was 6:50am, but that was in NJ.
