I am new to Skinny as at today.  Put in the Sim and everything was working, they even ported my number hop smart.  However since about 8pm I've been unable to send text messages (receiving is fine) and cannot use data.  I have over 600MB balance of data, tons of minutes etc etc.  Phone is Galaxy Note II.

Their incident tool doesn't seem to be working either and can't phone them as it's out of hours.  What do others do to alert them to a potential outage?

Anyone else noticed anything tonight?

Well, I ended up downloading an app over WIFI called Voodoo RRC tool. I clicked show radio states and it came back up. It may be coincidence, or it may not! It will be interesting if it does it again.
