These days, more than ever, we depend on our technology.

Whether it's our cell phone, WIFI, personal computer, or tablet, our daily life is tethered to technology.

When the technology fails, it can be frustrating, and even dangerous.

Earlier today, customers of ATT began to experience difficulty completing calls to contacts who use other carriers like Verizon.

Calls Between ATT Customers to Other Networks Impacted

According to a report on Fox Business, the outage only affects calls between ATT and other carriers.  It has not affected calls between ATT customers.

It was reported that ATT had sent an erroneous message to 911 call centers alerting of possible service issues, however, the company now says 911 service has not been affected.
