Verizon Wireless data network down across the country

Verizon Wireless data network down across the country
If you’re using Verizon Wireless services today you might have noticed the huge data outage reported on both 3G and 4G networks across the country. Users from New York and New Jersey to California are all suffering from the outage, which seems to really be a nationwide one and the carrier itself has confirmed the issue exists. There’s no estimated time on when a fix will come, but hopefully it will be soon.

Sadly, Verizon representatives aren’t authorized to speak about exactly what areas and markets are affected, so this is solely based on user reports. Help us out with your experience with Verizon Wireless today - is your data down? 

Also, stay tuned - we’ll update you whenever we have more information on this. 

Update: For many of the affected Verizon customers 3G data is back, but often reported spotty, while 4G is still down for the majority of users. On the East Coast, some users in the Tri-state area report that LTE is back as well. Verizon is obviously looking into this and hopefully we'll get a nation-wide fix soon.

What does WiFi have to do with 3G or 4G/LTE? If you WiFi is down, then it's not because of VZW.

I am currently in south eastern part of the U.S. There is no 3G or 4G on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus & Droid Charge. Man I have only been with Verizon Wireless for a little over 48 hours & I just hope this doesn't happen often. My wife is like WHAT?!? I CAN'T USE FACEBOOK?!? I told her it's not the end of the world, she can catch up on the book she is reading. She was like I know I am just kidding. Secretly though I think there was some truth to that mini outburst, but don't tell her that. lol

This will happen at least once every three months. That's when they do their tune-up of the eHPRD protocol bridge for UMTS and CDMA2000 to allow the LTE and 1xEV-DO networks to work together. Personally, I would suggest T-Mobile's Galaxy S II and the GSM Galaxy Nexus instead of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and the DROID Charge.

Upstate new york is still good with 3G, can't speak for 4G yet.
