    Default Why no scores from other games?

    I never heard the PA man give a single score from other games. I don't watch the scoreboard too closely so I may have missed if they ran some scores. This is really frustrating when your iPhone cannot connect.

    I hate AT&T

    This was my first game on their system and I couldn't do a single update.

    AT&T ANYWHERE on UL's campus has been the bane of my existence. Of course, my girlfriend standing right next to me (she has Verizon) has a full signal.

    I liked having no updates for other teams. Kept the fans focused on our game.

    Yeah, I have had AT&T for years and always a problem. In the 4th quarter when most of the crowd thinned out I was finally able to get on connect and received Twitter, slowly, but ESPN and Yahoo sports apps never loaded.

    Any App suggestions?

    My ESPN app worked just fine. Do you have the alerts set for certain scores you want? I have score alerts set for about 10 different teams and I got all of them. The only problem was it took about five minutes to load if I wanted to look at other things on the ESPN app. Also, try updating your apps. If you have the 4g all my text went through if I sent them as a text and didn't use Imessage. Just what I noticed!! Hope it helps!

    I have an LTE phone and nothing worked until half when people started leaving.

    The cause is just way too many people trying to connect to one single tower. Each cell tower can only hold so many connections.

    Once you get data working it usually keeps working because you have that connection made, even after you finish and put it back in your pocket. But no one else can get on, because the tower already has x number of connections.

    The answer is to get at&t to bring a mobile tower on game days. Good luck getting that to happen...

    No I don't have score alerts. Thanks and I'll try that. Yeah my apps are up to date but I probably didn't wait long enough when I got a connection. After about five minutes of grinding searching for it to load I jumped to Twitter which worked fine, if slow.

    I've had Verizon phones at games the last 3 years, no problems. Before that used AT&T and had the issues you mentioned Looks like they haven't gotten any better. Guys in our TG area were complaining about the same thing early in the day.

    Other carriers have so many fewer users, their towers can handle the load.

    I think that is how I am going to pick my next carrier in 18 months

    I'm going to ask "got any customers?"

    "no?"

    "Want one?"

    I have AT&T and almost zero coverage in my home. Time for me to come to a new carrier. I will be getting a few people with Verizon in my home to see if they get any better coverage than me. It is hell to have a cell phone I cannot use in my home except in certain spots and those spots seem to move. lol
