T-Mobile blocking Twitter. Egads! [Dec. 15th, 2007|12:42 pm]
[Current Mood |angryangry]

So, apparently T-Mobile is blocking Twitter. Confirmed from my phone (I get a "Service is temporarily down. Please, try again later." response) and sent in a customer service request. If this in fact the case, then I'll just switch to AT&T, since they're the other major carrier that uses GSM so my SIM card will work in their phone. Also, it looks like I can get a free RAZR when I sign a contract with them.

Grr. Argh.

Edit: Or maybe Twitter has scheduled downtime now. Or maybe this was happening earlier too.

Edit again: false alarm, sorry sorry sorry

Just a note, while AT&T is also GSM, your current SIM card almost certainly wouldn't work on their network, since it's tied to your T-Mobile account.

Hmm, good point. I guess I prefer GSM carriers on the off chance I travel abroad and want to use my phone, presumably at an exorbitant markup!

Oh, certainly. I way prefer GSM too. Right now I have my normal AT&T phone (the Sync, which is pretty good though it has a few annoyances) and a backup cheap unlocked phone (Motofone, which is actually pretty cool) that I could just pop my SIM card into at any time. Even with AT&T's less than stellar network, never again will I subject myself to stupid CDMA carriers.
