‘Major’ cellphone outage cripples the east coast

Millions of people are unable to receive or make phone calls from their cellphones due to a ‘major outage’ affecting the entire east coast and other areas of the globe.

According to Down Detector, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, MetroPCS, Verizon and Simple Mobile are experiences unusually high outages affecting the entire east coast, including a major outage in Washington D.C.

“Anyone else experiencing a @TMobile outage in NY? My family and I can’t make calls,” one customer tweeted at 2:23 p.m.

“@TMobile outage in the DC metro? Cant place any calls,” another tweeted at 2:15 p.m. “They sent me a PM to use wifi but that still does not work.”

“Is there an outage somewhere in the Philadelphia or Southeastern PA area? for some reason, calls will not go through between me and my family’s cell phones.  but texts are going through fine,” someone tweeted at 2:27 p.m.
