Hi Particle team,
I’ve got 40+ Electrons stuck in flashing green. These devices have all sorts of different firmware installed, one with tinker on 0.5.0 and one in safe mode. Some have been running for a month or more with the same firmware. I assume we can eliminate issues with my code, but I could be wrong.
They all lost network connection roughly at the same time, around 4pm PST.
The status page at http://status.particle.io/ says the carriers are still operational, but it seems this could be the issue. My cell phone (on AT&T 4G still works) so I am assuming the network is not down. Is there a way the Particle devices could be blocked?
To my knowledge, I am current on my payments for cellular usage
Anyone else experiencing the issue? I would like to resolve it ASAP.
@hwestbrook, my Electrons are doing the same thing. Not sure when it started but both are flashing green and won’t connect.
I am having the same issue. Electron has worked flawlessly for a month or two. Just noticed this after I got home from work today. (Assuming around 6 pm CST)
Has me a little worried being that I’m trying to show a product prototype in a couple weeks.
My photons are connecting just fine.
Well… me too. FWIW, just outside Houston, TX. Oh, and mine alternates green flashing with breathing white for a moment.
Same here in Bay Area California…
Yup, mine too (21:44 CDT)
And here in Ottawa, Canada
Mine too. I just opened this thing for the first time.
Mine too. I’m in Puerto Rico (Caribbean).
Me too, in Syracuse NY. Pretty widespread. @peekay123 where did you get that message?
Thanks for all the posts, folks. Our status site will continue to be the best place to monitor this issue as we track it to resolution, but I wanted to chime in with our appreciation of your help identifying the issue with our carrier.
Same here in Indianapolis, IN
I’m it it seems like AT&T or T-Mobile right?
Back in the land of the living here.
Yup, checked this morning and it was reconnected. A somewhat broad outage and somewhat disconcerting.
I wholeheartedly agree.
Does anyone know if we can still run our application code without connecting to the internet? Such as a timeout when it can't find service, then run the code and store the values for later when it doesn't timeout? That would at least prevent data loss.
SYSTEM_THREAD(ENABLED) are the magic words to look up in the reference docs in this connection.
Cellular.ready() is also a good one to know if you are connected or not
