Undergoing Matenance

Prev13
Yeah im getting this too. But i doubt it's to do with Christmas update. That's probably going to come on december 5th. Also why does this always happen when my characters are just about to finish their tasks?

    I'm getting this message too.

    Earlier today I was repeatedly getting an error message that said "Cannot connect to internet. This one's your fault, not ours." Now they are owning up to actually having issues on their end.

    I sure hope its a Christmas update! :D

    I am; sadly, I've not set my gang to their 12-hour tasks yet, so they are loitering about not making any $$$.

    ]Dec 5 is when they update to disable old devices (hopefully not my 3GS). also it was around that date in Oct and Nov when those holiday updates came out

    i'm getting this error now too and i've been playing all day

    I just started getting it. I really hope it lets me in soon, I had just set the last round of hour tasks right before I set 12 hour tasks...

    Cshirleyea, if you know what's going on please let us know! Come to the rescue!

    Not very considerate timing for maintenance - within my lunch hour :cry:

    From the Simpsons Tapped Out Facebook page:
    Do you have an older generation Apple device? If you have a 1st or 2nd generation iPhone or iPod, you may not be able to play the Simpsons after 12/5, as we are upgrading our software to meet the constant demand of new and improved devices. Make sure you've created an Origin account, so your Springfield will be waiting for you when you get a new device.

    I guess people are under the assumption that with the software upgrade, the Christmas update will come too.

    EA sent a notification to those playing the game on older devices that the game will no longer function on those devices after the update on 05 Dec 2012

    I've gotten back on. One thing though, I can't buy donuts. Maybe it means they're going on sale?

    I feel like it's an update for midnight. I think stuff will def be going on sale. Or there might be a premium building or character only available during black friday!

    My game keeps telling me it is undergoing maintenance, which is wierd because EA hasn't done any work on this game in months. Why would they pick a time when everyone is free to play to do maintenance?

    Makes sense if there is going to be a donut sale!
