ORIGINAL STORY:

Thousands of Sprint customers in Wisconsin reported issues with their cellular service Tuesday morning.

Sprint's official customer service presence on Twitter alerted users to the problem just after 10:00 a.m. Monday:

Affected customers can't seem to access voice, data, or messaging functionality if they aren't connected to wi-fi.

Popular cell service website DownDetector.com's Sprint outage map showed that nearly the entire state looked to be affected as of 11:00 a.m.

The same site's outage chart showed thousands of customers have reported problems. There's no word yet on what may have caused the outage.
