JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT)

UPDATE: The City of Jacksonville Public Safety Department says everyone should now be able to call 9-1-1, after a problem prevented some AT&T Mobile users from being able to reach 9-1-1 on Tuesday.

Jacksonville Public Safety officials said a nationwide problem affecting AT&T Mobile systems and users early Tuesday morning caused some Jacksonville-area AT&T Mobile users to be unable to call 9-1-1 for emergency services, but AT&T has since fixed that problem.
