T-mobile facing major outage in US, iPhones turn into “SOS” mode
Customers of T-Mobile are having difficulty accessing the company's network, according to user feedback.

In the United States, T-Mobile is witnessing an interruption that is becoming more severe. Through its help page on Twitter, the operator has (vaguely) recognised the troubles. However, there has yet to be an estimated time when services will resume for customers.

Customers of T-Mobile are having difficulty accessing the company’s network, according to user feedback and complaints gathered by the website Downdector. After 6 o’clock PT, consumer complaints spiked, and they’ve been fluctuating ever since.

The issues do not appear widespread; instead, they look limited to specific regions. Even though some subscribers have had their connection resumed, many people are still without it.

T-Mobile confirmed the disruption and claimed it is “rapidly working to resolve” the issues through its support account on Twitter. The disruption affects phone, message, and internet access for impacted users.

“We are aware of and rapidly working to resolve an issue that has created intermittent impacts to voice, messaging and data service in several areas this evening. We hope to have a resolution very soon and apologise for any disruption this may cause.”

In the notification centre of their smartphone, iPhone owners especially see the “SOS” sign, which indicates total no network connectivity.

iPhone users are getting the “SOS” sign, which indicates total no network connectivity.

iPhone owners allege that their iPhones have remained in this SOS status even in regions where T-Mobile coverage has been resumed and that T-Mobile still needs to issue precise directions on what to do.

If you’re not aware, the “SOS” sign in the notification centre of your iPhone indicates that it is not now connected to the network, yet you can continue to conduct emergency calls. This suggests that the T-Mobile connection is still not accessible in your location due to the blackout if you see it on your iPhone.

Regarding the outage’s timeframe for service recovery for impacted users, T-Mobile hasn’t yet released any extra information. Moreover, there needs to be a clue as to what provoked this disruption.
