Boost Mobile Service Down?

So I live in Tallahassee and leave on the campus of Florida State University, and for the past 4 days my phone has absolutely no service, at all I know boost runs off of sprint's towers and I was wondering if there is a problem with the network here or if anyone is experiencing the same thing. Someone wanna give some advice on what to do? I really need my phone service back

I'm just spitballing here, but Hurricane Sandy hosed the northeast royally. Lines/towers down, no power, etc. I would assume the remaining network resources were overwhelmed by Sprint users and they bumped Boost customers off the network. Sprint gives network priority to regular Sprint customers so pre-paid customers get bumped. I'd think it was a backhaul problem. Florida towers won't help us northeastern customers but if they re-route us to other areas on the backend that might explain it. If it doesn't get sorted out soon-ish it may be time to call Sprint and see if they borked your account somehow.

I'd be willing to bet your tower was taken down as part of the nextel culling.. they are removing tons of sites to make way for NV and push everyone to the pcs direct connect system
