Our reader Kevin alerted us that Cingular Wireless is experiencing a widespread outage.

Right now, it looks like the outage effects mostly the north east. One reader mentioned that Cingular links the outage to a worm, but a Cingular representative stated that the outage is not worm related.

A Cingular support representative confirmed an outage in the North East, but didn't comment about the worm. A couple test calls to Cingular customers went through ok, so its not a "total outage". Appearently, Cingular to Cingular calls are more likely to be affected, and one user reported that old AT&T phones where down, while newer Cingular phones worked fine

We are now receiving more reports that things are back to normal.
