Would have only impacted land lines. Cells worked fine.

Seemed like the outage primarily affected 3G coverage on the South & East ends of Richmond, so probably a specific tower undergoing tech probs and maintenance. I turned off my 3G and was able to re-establish steady voice call signal. Think the tower was intermittently broadcasting while they were working on it, which kept kicking phone signal to nothing as it tried to switch back and forth, so by disabling 3G receiver on handset, was still able to connect and talk. No problems when I got within city limits later, full signal with 3G. This morning, problem area seems to be back to normal again :-)

Very odd, you have service, and then you don't.
Just got voice messages from much earlier in the day.

Oh well.

There were 38 towers not working, not just in Richmond.

I got home at 3:30. My AT&T service for phone and internet were both out. It did not come on again until about 9:30. I live close to campus.
