"Lots of annoyed iPhone users today in the central US. Apparently, the servers responsible for running the EDGE network for AT&T are down, depriving many iPhone users of their normal connectivity.This outage is affecting users from Chicago to Kansas. If you're part of the affected customer base, let us know in the comments. According to poster BBuehner at the Apple Support discussions forum, AT&T says the problem should be fixed by the end of today but could go as long as February 5th."

If it lasted until 2/5 I would be expecting some sort of credit on my next bill.

I'm not too concerned. Whatever the phone uses while off of wifi and edge seems to be fine anyway. Unless it's just fooling me during those times the E icon is off and I'm still browsing and emailing, etc. Right now it's on, though, and actually pretty fast. This must be why... The remaining edge servers are less loaded or something

the Internet is one of the main feautres I use on the phone, so when I'm in school I can't use the wifi, so I have to use edge and if it was down I would probably go crazy haha ;P
