It’s Not Just Your Phone, Apparently There’s A Nationwide Outage For Phone Carriers. Here’s What We Know.

I have no idea why, but many people don’t have any sort of mobile phone service right now, including me and my own family!

I was on Facebook and saw a status from a friend saying this was a nationwide issue. So, I went to my phone to check to see if we had cell phone service still, and we do not.

So, then I went back to Facebook to check and see if anyone else was having issues and which carriers they used and what areas they were in. It seems to be a nationwide outage affecting many, if not all, carriers!

People are even posting outage maps on Twitter:

Some people do not even have service on their landlines or even have internet right now! Some people seem to think it is a hack or cyberattack, or even a satellite down.


Other people are saying that they are trying to merge Verizon Sprint and T-Mobile towers right now. None of this is confirmed, so who knows what the actual facts are right now.

Every single person that answered me when I asked if they had phone service answered with “No!”.

For me, I am able to send and receive texts but not calls.

I wouldn’t even bother trying to contact your service carrier because I am sure they are beyond overloaded on people attempting to contact them about it.

We are looking for more information on why it is happening and will update as soon as we can. But for now, just know it isn’t just your service, it isn’t just your phone at all. This is happening across the entire nation.


What about you? Do you currently have mobile phone service? If you don’t, where are you and who is your service carrier?

Update: They are saying this was an accident at T-Mobile, not a DDoS attack as some were saying. They are also saying this was only a T-Mobile issue, although many other people said their carriers were out as well. So who knows what happened.

This is an IP traffic related issue that has created significant capacity issues in the network core throughout the day.”
