    Tonight, and it is not the first time....
    I am getting the following message when accessing WEB services (Messaging
    services are OK!)

    Thank you for
    visiting PCS Vision
    We're in the process
    of upgrading our
    systems to better
    serve you.

    We regret the
    inconvenience.
    Please check back later.


    Started sometime before 8PM EDST, on-going as of the time of this post.

    This has happened before..

    This is in area code 937.

    Is this happening elsewhere? Anyone know the reason? Duration?

    In San Francisco, CA (AC415) tonight around 10:30pm, I couldn't get to
    the PCS Vision home page ("communication error"), but I could use my
    bookmarks to get to other non-SPCS WAP sites.

    When our service was out in Charlotte a couple of weeks ago, when they were
    updating the system, it was for 48-60 hours ... since I first noticed the
    problem.

    From a communications company, you'd expect better communication.

    What they *should* do, in a case like this, is broadcast messages
    to all subscribers' phones, indicating that a system upgrade is
    being performed, and a temporary reduction in services is possible.

    That's a good suggestion, at least to all those who have vision accounts in
    the area.

    OK, how's this...

    Change "all subscribers" to "all regional subscribers," or, even better,
    under "Manage Your Account," an option to receive service messages.

    I like that even better. Something like what notifications EarthLink does,
    when they have outages or scheduled upgrades, in specific areas, nationwide
    ....

    They could expand on that by showing where new towers have been initialized.
    (Maybe they already do that in their own system).

    Good idea, the only downside being that you have to have Internet access...
    If you happen to be on the road, and your phone's your only communication
    device, well, you get the idea.

    Either that or change their method of 'system upgrade'... there are ways to
    do 'non-disruptive' upgrades involving duplicate systems....

    I suggested this previously, and O'siris commented that this would
    increase the load on the CSR's because people would call in disputing
    the outage map...
