Looks like Sprint is having some issues with their network in some states according to Engadget, Some customers arent able to send text messages and others are having issues with voice calls. More as this develops.
Uh oh, according to the handful of tips we’ve received, it appears that Sprint is currently having some technical problems on its cellular network in some states. Specifically, customers aren’t having much luck with sending text messages, while some are also not able to make voice calls.
Update 1: Tweet from Sprint “We are currently aware, I do apologize. We are working on a resolution. Thank you for your patience.”
Update 2: Engadget got a response from Sprint:
“We did have some disruption to Sprint SMS traffic earlier tonight, but it wasn’t a complete disruption — we lost partial capacity for about an hour. Engineers immediately began rerouting traffic and after about an hour things went back to normal.
There is no significant voice disruption anywhere in the US except for a small part of our Sprint network in the Washington, DC area. That has since been resolved and had no relation to the SMS disruption.”
Looks like all is well now except a lot of people online are still complaining about issues.
