Dallas-Based AT&T Having Some Trouble Providing 3G Voice Service to Dallas

Several Friends of Unfair Park -- and AT&T customers -- are wondering why in the world they can't reach out and touch someone this morning using their 3G voice service. Left a few messages for spokespersons at Akard Street HQ, but the company's Twitter account just posted the answer to our frustrated Friends' question: "DFW customers may have issues w/3G voice calls. 3G data & 2G service not impacted. Working 2 restore service will keep u posted." Several Friends are complaining they can't text either, despite what AT&T says. Course, you're free to use the EDGE network till then. I blame Luke Wilson.

Update at 11:11 a.m.: Mike Barger, who handles PR duties for AT&T out of San Antonio, just sent word: "Our local network team restored service about 10 minutes ago."
