At last, fixes due for AT&T and iPhone at Citizens Bank Park

Forgive me if you've heard this before - say, before the baseball season, back in April, when AT&T first said a fix was imminent at Citizens Bank Park. This time - just in time for the Phillies to begin a three-game series Friday night against their arch-rival New York Mets - AT&T says its upgrades at the park are "installed and running."

At last, fixes due for AT&T and iPhone at Citizens Bank Park

Forgive me if you've heard this before - say, before the baseball season, back in April, when AT&T first said a fix was imminent at Citizens Bank Park, or in postings here that suggested the company's network was working better at the Bank, or would work better really really soon.

This time - just in time for the Phillies to begin a three-game series Friday night against their arch-rival New York Mets  - AT&T says its upgrades at the park are "installed and running,"  and were being tested during the Phillies' road trip that ended Thursday night in Florida with an improbable, come-from-behind-but-still-almost-blow-it victory. 

So go to the game tonight, and cheer on the Fightin' Phils. While you're there, see if AT&T and your iPhone actually work as promised.

As for me, I'll believe it when I see it.
