Default I'm out in Houston

I am getting the infamous "data connection refused" in Houston. Started about 15 minutes ago.

It's definitely down again in Houston. Looking over our BES, I see that the last contact time is about 3:15 PM for most Texas users, though one or two show the current time. My Blackberry is showing lowercase 3g, and has no data since 3:08 PM CST.

Jeeze! Twice in one week!! That's not fair... I know the people at AT&T work their butts off, but this is a bit extreme. Maybe they will give you all a service credit if you complain. (Not advocating that you harass AT&T)

Did we ever find out the reason for the last outage in TX?

Been working all day for me, up until about 5 minutes ago. Googled my frustrations and found this, haha. But yeah, down for me in the DFW area.
