There was a single cellsite down (reportedly) but it was supposed to be a quick fix. They may still be working to get it back up. It went down 5/1/2011 and originally anticipated it being back up same day so it must not be a major issue...hopefully they will have it up for you soon!
Hope this helps!
From 60653: As of today, I don't think the problem has been fixed. I'm getting text messages sent at 2pm and 7pm CST at 1040pm CST. This has been happening to me since Friday, 4/30. I called yesterday and today and was told there is an issued with a tower that services all of Chicago and part of IN that is malfunctioning. When last I spoke with Sprint this morning, the issue ticket had been closed, but I was informed that a closed ticket didn't necessarily mean the repair/upgrade/restoration was done. I'm at the end of my patience. Is there any word on when this work will be done and when I'm going to have reliable service again?
I may start trying to find another phone company to work with. This has been an issue for me for almost three weeks. I'm receiving texts and voicemails DAYS late, and I cant' dial or OR receive phonecalls. I've NEVER had this issue with Sprint, but it is TRULY is becoming a problem for me.
Could you please provide me with your zip code. I just want to verify that your zipcode is included with the outage I show in rural Chicago.
