SLC cops: AT&T 911 cell phone service in Salt Lake City restored
AT&T cell phone service calls to 911 have been restored and are now routing normally. The company continues to investigate why that emergency routing went awry Thursday.
The Salt Lake City Police Department had reported the glitch Thursday when AT&T customers complained their calls to 911 locally were being re-routed to Seattle.
Police departments in both cities contacted AT&T representatives to correct the problem.
In the interim, Seattle police were re-routing AT&T cell phone customers in Salt Lake City back to police here, or giving them a direct-dial number to call.
