According to our provider, Cellular One of East Central IL is aware they may have an issue. We have spoken with them and they are reaching out  to see why the messages aren’t getting passed through their system. I haven’t heard anything back from them yet.

I will pass along more infomation when I know more. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through this problem.


Update: SMS Alert issues

June 14th, 2010 at 12:40 pm by under Inside WTHITV.com

Our goal to to provide our subscribers with a higher level of service.

Unfortunately the process hasn’t been perfect.  We’ve determined a few counties in our viewing area are not currently receiving alerts.  I know our users who are with Cellular One of East Central IL have been affected along with a few others. Over the weekend many of our users did not recieve alerts.

Our vendor said today they have been receiving multiple alerts from the NWS for some counties; which is tripping up the system.   Their developers are hard at work trying to resolve those issues. They are also working with Cellular One of East Central IL to restore service as quickly as possible.

I’ll post an update when I received an update from our developer.   If you haven’t signed up for our Text Alerts, you can do so here.

Besides severe weather alerts and school closing alerts, we now offer breaking news, lottery numbers and sport score alerts.
