We at WMExperts have just confirmed that there is a nation wide outage with Sprint Text Messaging. According to Sprint it all started at around 3 pm PST today. Some areas can receive text messages but cannot send them, while others have the opposite problem, with everyone else not able to do either. They were unsure (or not willing to admit) as to what created the problem. Even though they are not sure exactly when text messaging will be back online, their ETA is within the next 8 to 12 hours
