T-Mobile data seems to be down this morning here in the
Oakland/Emeryville/Berkeley part of the San Francisco Bay Area. Voice
service is fine, but I can't get data via EDGE or 3G on either my

devices, so that rules out device errors.
Am I just experiencing some bad luck (or welcomed "forced down

pre-orders showed up this morning and the network got hammered? Maybe
it's a glitch in the system? Maybe Steve Jobs' minions have been
cutting T-Mobile's backbone cables in the wake of last night's flood of
UPDATE: My data came back up around lunchtime
here in Berkeley, CA. Both EDGE and 3G are working. John reports that
data is still down as of 1:30 PM in his part of Portland, OR ... though
reader PDXMatt said earlier that his data was fine. Possibly a rolling outage of some sort? Hmm ...
