3G is working fine in Salem, Oregon. Can't say anything about LTE though, since Verizon hasn't gotten it here yet... Come on! It's the capitol of Oregon!

No problem with my data. oh wait.....I'm on the sprint network. I wonder if the Iphone is wreaking havoc with data networks?

Well if its 4G thats also out, since the iPhone isn't 4G, I don't think that's the case.

I agree with the iPhone wrecking havoc. The extreme amount of iPhone activations over the weekend affect the billing/network systems the control the networks.

No Prob. for me still have 4 full bars of signal strength all day, from LA to SD in Cali. Own a Moto D2 Global. Played youtube vidz and surfed the web when family came for visit. So weird that their is an outage in SoCal when I haven't suffered like other people.

I had 4g back for about two hours. If 3G is working in your area than go into your settings and turn your LTE of and run CDMA only you might still have luck that it's just not switching back. When my wifi goes out my phones have always stayed on that instead of found a connection somewhere else. I turned my LTE off an had 3G for an hour. Than nothing. Text and voice never went out. I wonder if there being hacked I really believe that could be possible considering I never have had my data go off on my Verizon phone in Portland as long as I have had Verizon. Witch has been over fifteen years

Stuck on 1x since about 4pm in Portland, Oregon on my Thunderbolt. This is absolutely unacceptable. For the amount of money Verizon charges there had better be some compensation.
