Default Data out in Boston

Please Login to Remove!

Yet another disruption. GSM only or bouncing to edge. Boston to 495 loop.

This is getting old really fast...

Default Yes, confirmed from AT&T

Just got off phone with At&T wireless. they say that all of northeast is having problems. They claim that it was Blackberry that updated somehting although I think that may not be the case. How could BB be affecting GSM-EDGE coverage? He said that Treo users on EDGE had no problems in this area. Don't know if that's true.

Strange, but possible. My wife is on AT&T with a WM device and she has had no issues this morning. Her data access has been fine.

expect lots of hickups with ATT for 2 reasons

1) they are updating cell sites from Cingular to ATT and this may cause service disruptions (it did here in PA for a little bit)

2) their EDGE network is under a lot of stress because of the iPhone

I just spoke with AT&T business customer service.
They said 24-48 hours until data is back up.
I hope that's their "company line" and not the actual estimate.

I just noticed the change to ATT.....hmmm, wonder if that screwed things up.

EDGE is back but still no email or Web access.
