Is Whispernet down?

I'm getting zero bars and no downloading. I even did a soft re-set and nothing.

Just want to check to see if it's just me.

Nevermind. Full bars after 10 mins and everything is downloaded. That was very strange.

I'm in a dead zone, so it could be down for days and I wouldn't know it.

That is not very polite calling Texas a dead zone.

Ah - but I'm not in Texas. I'm at a friend's house where we have never been able to get a decent cellular signal. To use my cell phone, I have to walk out to the sidewalk.

I've got one room left. But you won't want it. It's a dead zone. It's like you don't even exist. You can't get your calls, your precious eBooks.

In the ten months I've had mine, only twice did I have the problem of all the bars showing when ordering a book, but having to wait about 15 minutes for it to show up. It usually is almost instantly.

The last time was on a weekend, so thought that might have caused the problem if there were an unusual number of purchases all at once.

Hee hee hee.......sounds like my next door neighbor, who actually works for At&T, yet has to go outside to use his cell. You'd think he'd understand the futility.......while we have Verizon and it works anywhere!! (At least in this area)
Its funny seeing him in 110 degree heat, sitting in his car, with engine and air running, talking on phone......or walking up and down the street.....

I think I have my answer. This was the same evening I posted about Whispernet.

Quote:
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?

Voidale posted in another thread that he/she is in the Czech Republic. I doubt there's a Whispernet there.

Yeah, after I posted I noticed that voidale is posting all over the place and after reading a few of those posts I realized he/she doesn't have a Kindle.

Thanks for the follow-up Elsi.
