Chicago Microcell Outage

My two microcells have had blinking 3G lights since this morning. I finally called AT&T and was told there's an Microcell outage in the Chiicago area. They don't have an estimated time to repair.

Re: Chicago Microcell Outage

Since the last outage (what started this thread) my microcell has been fine. Until today that is, Its flashed the 3G symbol three seperate times today and now its been out for an hour. I tried the usual power cycling but its not working. Anyone else having issues.

 

I am in Park Ridge IL

 

Man I can't wait for Verizon to get the iPhone. I will gladly eat the $175 fee to have the ability to use my phone.

Yup.  Mine is flashing again as well.

 

Once again, there is a reason AT&T was just named worst wireless carrier in the US

Down again in Northeastern Wisconsin.  Went down I think around 4:00 PM Central.  Still down at 9:00 PM (12-29-10).  Clearly this is a large problem with AT&T and unrelated to towers.

Mine is out again also, I am in Crystal Lake, IL(Northern IL).  At&T has had terrible customer service with the micro cell. I would suggest calling your credit card company that you bought it with and filing a dispute. They are not holding up their end of the service.

Mine was out since mid-afternoon, but it just came back on. Funny - I was just about to get connected to the online chat support person when I noticed that the 3G light stopped blinking. Go figure.

Yup, back on in NE Wisconsin as well.  Looks like we are all tied to the same crappy system.  AT&T just doesn't get it.  We purchase a product that doesn't work and then have to purchase another unreliable product to make the first product work.  

We were told towers were going up this year to fix the HUGE holes in their coverage map, 2011 is around the corner and it never happened.

Verizon is going to bring a world of hurt to these guys.

I have experienced an outage here at home as well. I'm in Peru, IL, about 100 miles west of Chicago, but it is still considered part of the Chicago district. Not sure when it went down, but it is still down now.
