    I have Sprint and didnt experience any interruption in service, texts or voice. I made calls and sent texts as business per usual…

    I’m aware of the service being worse than normal yesterday but , thought it was Sprint! As this has happened many times before, turned phone off n back on, realized it wasn’t my phone. So the fact that this time there was a reason for the outage, what’s all the publicity about ? This is truly nothing new !
