4:25 PM -- "The AT&T U-verse website is temporarily unavailable due to a system outage," read a message posted on AT&T's U-verse Website on Sunday afternoon at around 4 p.m., Eastern. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are working around the clock to restore our site. Please try again on Monday, December 8, 2008."
The U-verse Website had already been down for several hours Sunday when that notice was posted, customers of the service say. The site is used by AT&T's customers to pay bills, access and change account info, order movie channels, etc. It is also the entry point many customers have bookmarked for programming their DVRs remotely.
