If you are a Cingular customer in South Texas then you may have been having problems with your phone since around 4 p.m. today.

NEWS ALERT (4:21 p.m.)
Cell phone tower interrupts service temporarily

Advocate Staff Report

A tower for Cingular Wireless has been down for about 15 minutes as of 4:15 p.m. Friday, but is being repaired, and service should be restored shortly, according to Jennifer Wall at Victoria Communications Service.

She said she was not told the location of the tower and she was not sure which customers are affected.

If your cellphone is your only way of communicating with the outside world, that could be a good thing and a bad thing. Bad if you are in an emergency situation, good if you just want some quiet time.
