911 Outage for AT&T Cell Phone Customers
Did you get an alert on your phone? AT&T customers were sent an emergency alert system message saying 911 was unavailable due to a system outage.
"Currently there is a problem with A T & T cell phones dialing 9 1 1. In the event of an emergency, Oneida County AT&T customers should dial 315 736-0141 until further notice."
The problem wasn't confined to Oneida County. It affected customers all across America.

The issue also affected some Straight Talk and Cricket wireless users who use AT&T towers.
The cancellation alert went to all cellphones regardless of the carrier.
