Rumored: Alltel outage in Minnesota

The information, fourth-hand by the time you’re reading it here, originates with customer service. So unless we”re getting some telephone effects, this one has teeth. Once I see it somewhere else, I’ll update the post. [Consumerist]]]>

    I know that we are having a nasty outage in south carolina, I can’t receive calls, or texts, but i can make calls and receive texts.. makes no sense to me. They say they are working on it and that they have 72 hours to get it repaired. That doesn’t help me much though. What am I supposed to do with out my phone for 3 days??

    I live in the twin cities and have alltel. Ive been digital roaming for over a month now and Alltel just now today said they would start giving me a 50.00 credit everymonth(OMG this is gonna drag out I can just see it) untill the issue is fixed. my service is choppy and dropped calls are an issue sending text messages to my wife on her alltel cell phone here is having issues also.Alltel blames it on a sprint tower that is having problems.

    I live in southern minnesota and its not that our whole service goes out ALOT My texts stop going a lot and all my calls stop its mostly outgoing calls but i think about once a week they mess up all the texts every thing goes out and all they say is the tower is down and we have to wait…. and me being a prepaid pay by day customer I lose the money I get chargered for on the days i dont even get any service!!
