Why shut down those services when people most need them? Typical government BS.
It is actually smart because they were afraid of a remote detonating bomb (most common source is using cellphones).
i just said why lol. because of a potential detonation by cell phones.
Why so every can post on facebook, twitter and instagram about the whole thing! Ya I am sure they will die if they do not have a phone!

I live near Boston

Wild scene when i was close to Boston today.


cell phones were shut because of a potential remote detonator
Hmm, both Sprint and Verizon both publicly said their networks weren't shut down. . .

Suspect used a cell phone ahead

That is the reason why they shut down the cell phone system afterwords....

so now they can see whats going on...
Apparently it wasn't deliberately shut's just that immediately the traffic spiked and it overwhelmed the networks causing them to fail.....

So the networks going down seems to have been a lucky accident.

It amazes me how peop are more worried about having cell phone service than they are of the potential of placing others lives in danger with cell phones being used for remote detonations???. At least the government took things serious enough in trying to avoid further danger of bombings. I say good for them. Grow up people.
They also found 2 more bombs that hadn't been detonated. I'm wondering maybe...juuuuuuust maybe that'd because of the cellular shut down?
