AT&T restores service in Southern California AT&T has said today it has restored cell service for most of the users in Southern California that experienced an outage yesterday and today.
Starting at 3pm yesterday, customers lost service completely or at least had difficulty making/receiving calls. Data and texts were not affected.

Sokeswoman Meredith Red says (via PCM) the downtime was due to a hardware equipment problem, a mechanical issue with the switching equipment that routes calls through the network.

900 towers around LA County were affected but service is now mostly restored.

Red says the "handful of towers" left will be up and running by the end of the night.
