I haven’t been able to send or receive calls or text messages for about a half an hour now. I live in Minneapolis, MN.

It’s showing I have all 5 bars of service. Is this happening for anyone else?

Why post here? Wouldn't you call AT&T how will we fix the network? lol
But check if you put it in some mode that turns off service (I never do this so I wouldn't know but I believe Airplane Mode does)

well I can’t call if the service is down...

I didn’t touch any settings. So I figured I would ask to see if anyone else was having this problem.

I’ve also tried a hard reset and turning airplane mode on and off to try to reset things and still no luck.

You don't have a landline? lol Try emailing them then (Doubt they will answer within time) Use someone elses phone to call them.

Your service probably went down from load or something, just wait a few hours it will probably come back.

Although it is strange you are showing 5 bars...

I haven't had a landline in almost 10 years, is there a problem with that?

Um yea you can't trust mobile phones that much. Service goes in and out, it is a lot more stable with land lines. Plus in an emergency mobiles go out due to load while landlines usually still work.

My mom doesn't want a landline, she got rid of it after she moved last year, but living in SoCal, and the chance of an earthquake, she would then have no means of communication.

Try reseting your phone, if that doesn't work try taking the sim card out than put it back in, if that doesn't work, call at&t
