AT&T fills hole in valley service

Cell tower repaired after vandalism

Service for some Grand Valley AT&T customers was interrupted Tuesday morning after vandals struck a cell tower on the Redlands.

Service was knocked out between 6 and 7 a.m., and company employees repaired the cell tower and restored service by late afternoon.

Employees at Grand Junction’s AT&T store Tuesday told customers who came to complain about the problem to turn off their phones and turn them back on. Cell service is available for some customers in different areas of the city.

“It’s kind of a nuisance,” said one employee to a customer.

One woman said she came down to the store at 2454-106 U.S. Highway 6&50 because her new iPhone was not working. She said employees “did something to enable the phone.”

The woman said she lives north of Grand Junction Regional Airport, and her phone did not work from her home.
