"it just works"


Ah, I knew this overused, cliché, and unnecessary quote would be posted in this thread. I'd like to remind you that there isn't a single service or piece of software on the market without bugs and glitches. And iCloud works really well 99.9% of the time.

I've been having this problem for about the last 90 minutes or so. It came back online briefly about 45 minutes ago, but it's down again.

Not sure if related, visual voice mail has been down for about an hour or so.


That's a feature from the carrier. Can't blame that one on Apple.
