Sprint Experiencing Nationwide Text Message Outage?

Posted In News - By Joe Fedewa On Monday, July 11th, 2011 12:03pm PST With 12 Comments

Reports of text messaging issues are starting to pour in, and it’s looking like it may be a nationwide outage. Venture no further than Sprint’s Twitter page and you will see that they are aware of the problem and working to get things back up and running as quickly as possible. They have replied to numerous customers complaining about the issue, and they keep assuring that their network team is working on a fix.

UPDATE: We’re getting mixed responses on if this is affecting Google Voice users.

UPDATE 2: It appears this isn’t a nationwide outage, but it’s still affecting large areas.

Can anyone confirm this is happening to them?

    Yep, in Michigan. Started about an hour ago. I haven’t received any incoming messages since then, and every time I try to send a text, it either fails, or “sends”, but then is immediately followed by an error message saying it couldn’t be delivered.

    Amazing. Called support 3 times before someone could understand me or I could understand them. Was finally told that in my area, the network has been out since October and they don’t expect a resolution until June. Not acceptable. Sprint is losing a customer!
