Um, total confirmation on my part. I can't remember the exact time - it was most likely between midnight & 1am central time. I laid down for bed and was doing some final internet surfing on my iphone. All of the sudden I complely lost service & the time disappeared from my screen. I have AT&T service. It freaked me out because I'm always paranoid about stuff like that. I even thought of hopping on ATS to see if it happened to anyone else. Lol. Service came back after about 10 minutes and I just fell asleep and forgot about it until now. How odd.
The ONLY other time I've ever lost service was directly folowing the 5.6 Oklahoma earthquake a few months ago. We're about 30 miles from the epicenter. I chalked that up to the fact that everyone in the state was probably on their phone psycho calling loved ones and it over loaded the system or something. Hmmm . . .edit on 14-1-2012 by klhbrown because: spelling

This is not the first time this hoax has been claimed. I recall a while back that a similar event event was claimed in a hoax. We can file this with all of the hoaxes of people claiming they can stop watches because of their body electricity.

If my clock stops I know it. I have to reset the time. It would only flash 12:00, 12:00, 12:00 over and over.
I don't think the OP was talking about a power outage..
