    Default Significant Cingular Outage???

    Just curious if anyone is seeing problems (I'm a Nextel guy )

    Hearing reports...first on Glenn Beck when I was out running an errand that there's a cell phone outage in NYC...

    Now being confirmed by the Internet Storm Center* with sketchy details that it seems to primarily affecting phone-to-phone calls on the Cingular network in the Northeast.

    My Cingular phone had no service in the Philly area until about 1:00 PM.

    My Cingular phone keeps dropping calls. Full strength to no strength I tried Nextel but the coverage was too spotty and I travel in a lot of rural areas.

    Considering it was Tueday, I'm not surprised...it seems their service always has outages or other issues on Tuesdays....go figure...
