Across the country yesterday, iPhone users experienced trouble using AT&T’s wireless EDGE network, due to network issues. The problem which caused the service outage has been identified and is currently being worked on. Warner May, a spokesperson for AT&T, said, “The iPhone was not the cause.” Indeed, it appears that users of other data-enabled phones, including 3G models, experienced problems as well. The network, which experienced problems primarily in the West and Midwest, was back up as of 7:00 p.m. EDT.
