A tipster sent this missive to our inbox last night: "no ones cellphones are working on the west side. i know for a fact att and sprint are down and have been for hours now." But the West Side wasn't the only part of town feeling cut off from the world; it seems AT&T had zero to minimal phone or network service from about 7 p.m. until at least 1:00 a.m. last night elsewhere in Los Angeles--we know this because our own beloved iPhone was of no use to us from the Valley to Glendale to Dodger Stadium and back to the Valley again. Luckily, it seems to be all systems go this morning. Did your AT&T (or Sprint, as our reader suggests) network disappear last night? Anyone know why this happened?
