AT&T's Service Fail at Coachella Music Fest Renders Official iPhone App Useless

If you've ever been to Coachella, you know cell service isn't great. You'd think that AT&T, being a major event sponsor, would make sure their service worked in support of Coachella's iPhone app, right? Wrong.

According to the Twitter masses AT&T's voice and data we're down for the large majority of this past weekend's event, with many of the complaints coming from AT&T and iPhone users. Searching around for tales of poor Sprint or Verizon coverage yielded next to nothing, but one BB Storm owner praised his Verizon service at Coachella.

Coachella's iPhone app was supposed to let you do cool things like stay updated on set times, view interactive maps, find friends and upload photos. Apparently, much of that wasn't functional. Maybe next year, guys! [Coachella Cell Complaints, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here and VZW BB Storm Praise]
