Here is a picture of the current Bell outage map:
Bell customers have noted they are unable to access LTE services, which has affected Apple Watch Series 3 cellular users. Most wireless users have complained on social media about not being able to send and receive texts or make phone calls.
Some users have also complained about their Internet being down as well as home phone services from Bell as well.
As of three hours ago, service was still affecting customers in Montreal, Quebec. Bell Support on Twitter told users “Our techs are still working very hard at getting this resolved, ASAP.”
We’ve reached out to Bell for comment on the outage and will update this article accordingly. In the meantime, try rebooting your phone or toggling on/off Airplane Mode and see if that will fix the issue.

Update 4:30PM June 5: A Bell spokesperson told iPhone in Canada the following statement via email:
A limited number of customers have been experiencing intermittent voice and text service disruptions on our LTE network. We are continuing to investigate and hope to have the issue resolved soon.
