Many news outlets on the internet were talking about AT&T having some data issues yesterday. Although I don’t live in a very large city I did experience some problems while trying to read my RSS feeds with Google Reader on my iPhone. I had 5 bars when it came to how good my service was but when I tried to view web pages it told me that it could not activate EDGE.

Reading through many of the comments made on Engadget’s post about the subject showed that it was pretty wide spread, with issues all over the country.

I haven’t been able to find any information on what is causing the issue but as I type this right now the problem seem to have been fixed. Regarding how long I was affected, it was only for an hour or so but was still very frustrating.
