UPDATE 12:32 p.m. -- Sprint says that service has been fully restored to our area.



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'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.
