Maybe there's just a lot of congestion and it's not actually down?

Happens here (Australia) on some mobile networks at large events - just 
not enough bandwidth to go around and so you can't make calls and sms 
are delayed.  Given that there's a lot of protests etc and a lot of 
people out and about in Tehran it could be similar.
