Thumbs down CONFIRMED: Nationwide Sprint data outage

Please Login to Remove!

Sprint data support has no estimate of when service might be restored. In the meantime, our Sprint blackberries are nothing more than bloated candybar phones.

Interesting. I guess we'll read about it in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal?

Back up for now in Northern Virginia, although the same happened to me about an hour ago, and then it went out again.

This issue has been happening for the last two weeks. They told me last week it was due to the 7130's, but this sounds like its more then that. Mine is down also in NY and PA

Mine is still dead as a door stop and I was out all last week with an issue. Been with Sprint three weeks, and have been dead half that time.

I am on the Sprint (cdma) which had the issue, not sure if Nextel (iden) is having issues.

Sorry, I should have been more specific: The outage was in the Vision (1x) and Power Vision (EVDO) services of Sprint (CDMA).

My 1XEV EV-DO powered Psrint 7130e has worked without flaw. I received 67 eamils yesterday and answered 45 of them and initiated another 23 emails with no problem.

Today is not near half done and will have most likely the same. NO interuption in my service in Jacksonville, FL

Not saying it is not happening but nationwide, not so!

I have Nextel and I have been having problems with my MMS messaging. Last week I could receive and open them, but I could not send or create. This week the internet stopped working and all MMS messages that were saved on my bb are not gone and I cannot do anything with MMS. I have called Nextel last week and they told me there was a problem with network but should be ok within 24 to 72 hours. Called back yesterday with same problems and they said problem should be fixed within 24 hours and that it was a nationwide problem. Called back today, spent almost 2 hours on phone with support and still nothing works. If this is a nationwide problem, then why isn't is on the news or something? When you call they make it seem like it is just your phone with the problem!

Here in Texas, I awoke this morning with DCR (data connection refused). I power cycled the device and all is well. The last email came in about 2AM.
