Default GSM & CDMA Outage in NYC area???

Please Login to Remove!

For about the past 30 minutes I haven't been able to pickup a signal from any carrier - GSM or CDMA. It started in mid-town Manhattan, and service didn't return until the New Rochelle area.

Has anyone else seen this?

On my 9530, no CDMA and I couldn't roam via the Global SIM.

Tried my 8830, and the same deal (and I tried two SIM's - ATT & TMO).

WWAN was also down.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Pop the battery and reboot, try again.

Did that twice on my 9530 and once on my 8830. Rebooted the PC with the embedded WWAN as well. Other folks on the train were experiencing the same issue.

It was both Voice & data.

I could understand on one device if it's hiccuping, but on all three of my devices as well as other people...something funky was going on.

The woman next to me saw me flopping SIM's on the 8830 trying to get service and said her personal phone (VZW) and work bb (AT&T) were also affected. Upon overhearing us, several others chimed in and indicated that they were without service as well.
