This afternoon, AT&T cell phone service customers nationwide began reporting outages and an inability to make calls. It was not an isolated incident – a large number of customers were unable to make or receive calls.
Here were some of the tweets people posted on Twitter under the #attoutage hashtag as the problem began to spread.

Some people, at least, had a sense of humor about it.

It appears the issue involved phones not initializing to the AT&T network. AT&T reports that the issue can now be corrected if customers just restart their phone.
If you've experienced an issue when making wireless calls, please restart your device – that should resolve the issue.
