    Is the Sprint network Down?

    I have 2 phones on two different accounts. Both phones say network busy for about the last hour. If I call either phone, it gives a message about not being available and to try later.
    Gat a free Ipod (and help me get mine). http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=18188513

    My SMS is down at the moment. Getting network fail errors when trying to send an SMS. Haven't tried making any calls though.

    EDIT:

    Just tried calling my Sprint voice mail from my Sprint phone (by dialing my own number) and got a circuits busy message. I wonder what's going on?

    I'm in Salt Lake, Utah. Post your locale and if your service is up or down.

    This is a huge issue affecting all carriers thru most of the country. There a huge thread on it over at sprint users in the general forum...

    The word from Sprint Users is some optical line got cut. They have it narrowed down to somewhere between Reno and Phoenix (or something like that). Affecting all carriers west of Indoana (or something like that). No ETA.
