Cell phones in Central Iowa (and beyond?)

I’m now convinced that there’s something seriously screwed with the cell phone networks here in central Iowa. Most of the people I talk to have had this happening to them for the last couple of weeks. Anyway, my cell phone never rings when somebody calls it. It’ll just alert me that I have a new voice mail, but the phone never rings!

My phone has been wringing twice a day or so, but I always end up with more voice mails than that. It’s so annoying. I’m really curious as to whose and how many calls I’ve completely missed.
