Cricket Wireless officials have not given any further information other than their social media post and have not said what caused the outage or how long they anticipate it to continue. Customers attempting to call Cricket’s toll-free customer service number are greeted with a busy signal instead of a customer service representative.

Although there are thousands of reports of the outage, there are some areas that are not affected. Some smaller cities in Indiana, Wisconsin, and other midwestern states say they have had no issues. You can see areas affected on Down Detector’s Outage Map.
