cannot connec to cellular network

my phone cant connect to a cellular network anymore. i was using internet a while ago on my iphone 3gs, but then it just stopped. i shows i have full bars and the AT&T logo on the top left but no E or 3G connection. sometimes it'll even show that i have no service. i rebooted the phone and i'm still experiencing the same problem. any ideas? thanks

Re: cannot connec to cellular network

is this happening to anyone with an iphone? or someone with a jailbroken iphone? would that even make a difference?

Re: cannot connec to cellular network

I'm in SoCal area, too.  Just got off the phone with tech rep confirming outage in "my area".  Will be working on until about 9pm tonight!  Might be fixed sooner.

Must be pretty widespread.  Someone said they're in San Diego and I'm up in Ventura area.

Re: cannot connec to cellular network

I'm in San Diego as well and started having the same problems. "No Service" sometimes and other times, just 5 bars, but no data. I turned off 3G and rebooted my phone and I get 5 bars of Edge. The moment I turn 3G back on, goes to No Service. 

 

I also talked to tech support and they confirmed the outage... claimed it would be fixed within 24 hours.

I'm in Ventura and Carpinteria.  I was having issues for the past 3 hours, but now it seems everything is back. I have 5 bars on 3G.
