My Phone Service Isn't Working
Edited by Peko on Aug 13, 2012 at 12:08:56 AM

If I try to text, it says "message can't be sent," and if I try to call the call automatically ends.  I asked my friend to call me, and it was sent straight to voicemail.  I have full bars of service, and I've never missed a phone payment.  Those are the only two reasons I can think of as to why I can't call or text.  Why isn't my phone service working?

 

[Edit] Also, I should probably point out, that since my phone service isn't working, I can't even call AT&T for customer support.

That's really weird.  I turned my phone off and turned it back on and now I can call people....

 

I would still like some sort of explanation, but at least now it works.

That would be almost inpossible to explain why it did that, but cell phones like PC's do strange things every once in awhile and in the case of the pc the first thing you try is rebooting to see if that fixes the problem. Same with a phone, power off and restart or power off, pull the battery for a couple of minutes then start it back up

Okay, thanks.  Hopefully it won't happen again, because that was kind of aggravating.
