I'm having an issue in Oregon on TMobile. I just got off the phone and they informed me of an issue for all TMobile subscribers west of the Mississippi. No time to resolution. (Not sure about AT&T in Boston)

I feel for you, man. But, I really don't think it's the network. Everyone at my office who has AT&T has had not connection issues at all. I'm still on full EDGE, and can access the internet on BES and BIS (through, e.g., Opera Mini).

Could it be your device or SIM card?

Angry Boston/Cambridge

We have 22 BB devices in Cambridge (MIT area) and have had bad coverage for almost a month now. ATT claims that nothing is worng, although sometimes they say bad cell towers - but other times no such luck. always say they are fixed - but still nothing changes. My guess - a tower(s) went bad and they can't/won't fix it for some reason. Coverage used to be great all over this area - now it is bad and drains my battery in 2 days. no other changes.
