      Mine was down at 10:30 am EDT when I tested it after reading about the issue on CNN.

        Got a cellular network not available for voice calls error.

      It was back up at 1:30 pm EDT when I tested it again.

      Never noticed any problem. Made a couple calls in the morning and they went through. But if there had been an emergency at our end here, the landline would be an option of course. However, AT&T is planning on zapping the copper wire out of the landline service at some point in order to bring fiber to their customers. We’re rural and have limited choices for cell service, no fiber here, it’s AT&T copper and modem/router WiFi, along with a decent mobile data plan. Bottom line, we won’t have a landline, nor will we have AT&T fiber rolling through. Just passing this along since one of the suggestions stated in an article linked to this topic was to use a landline if your cell service takes a dive. 🙃AT&T was at one time a good choice for phone service. Things change, good paying customers move on – somehow.

      Hey Y’all,

      I’m a happy Consumer Cellular user using At&Ts network. My wife and I had no problems yesterday.
      However, a neighbor of mine who I helped switch to CC on AT&T was out all day but here husband was good, go figure.

      May the Forces of good computing be with you!

      AT&T’s plan to kill landline service in Bay Area stirs controversy, outrage
      By Alec Regimbal – Feb 9, 2024 – SFGATE
      Telecommunications giant AT&T is attempting to pull its landline service from much of California and the Bay Area, raising concerns among those living in rural areas who rely on the service during emergencies.”

      AT&T outage shows the danger of making landlines obsolete
      Author: Deepti Hajela (Associated Press) – February 23, 2024
      According to the most recent estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics, about 73 percent of American adults in 2022 lived in households where there were only wireless phones and no landlines, while another 25 percent were in households with both. Barely over 1 percent had only landlines.”

      Don’t laugh at your friends with old-school landlines. The AT&T outage this week offers a reminder of why they’re useful.”

      AT&T will apply “one $5 credit per account” within the next two billing cycles.

      We apologize for Thursday’s network outage. We recognize the frustration this outage has caused and know we let many of our customers down. We understand this may have impacted their ability to connect with family, friends, and others. Small business owners may have been impacted, potentially disrupting an essential way they connect with customers.

      To help make it right, we’re reaching out to potentially impacted customers and we’re automatically applying a credit to their accounts. We want to reassure our customers of our commitment to reliably connect them – anytime and anywhere. We’re crediting them for the average cost of a full day of service.

      We’re also taking steps to prevent this from happening again in the future. Our priority is to continuously improve and be sure our customers stay connected.
