T-Mobile Nationwide Service Disruption

November 3rd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

image It appears T-Mobile is having nationwide service disruptions.

T-Mobile Official Forum: http://tinyurl.com/yhezxt5

Services affected:

  • Voice
  • Data
  • Text & MMC
  • All (Yes, Including 911)

Their official message on their support site looks like this


This is the second major blow to T-Mobile since the sidekick issue on October 11th that  caused cascading failures and ultimately the loss of all data for T-Mobile Sidekick users. This issue was not directly T-Mobile’s fault but they are somewhat responsible of which provider is chosen to store their client’s data.

It’s very hard to believe that all of their servers could be affected like this nationwide.

Here’s some reference as to how Cell Networks work:

    Update: Just watched a T-Mobile commercial where they ask “What do you want” How about the service to work?

Update 2: The search term “tmobile down” was number 6 on Google and rated at “volcanic” on their activity scale!
