Verizon's LTE network is up and running again

Verizon's LTE network is up and running again
Yesterday we told you about the blackout of Verizon's LTE network, but a tweet by Big Red already says that its 4G network is up and running again.

As of now, there is no additional information about the cause of the outage, but we guess that Verizon will issue an official statement once the dust has settled.

It's rumored (and, shall we say, probable) that the said blackout caused the delay of the Samsung Droid Charge, which was scheduled to arrive yesterday. An internal e-mail states the reason behind the above-mentioned handset's postponement as "unexpected delays".

Now that Verizon's 4G network is up and running again, we will be eagerly awaiting the news that the Samsung Droid Charge is officially launched and available in the stores.

Didn't take them very long to fix it. I'm almost certain that the tornadoes might have taken out a power line or something that runs the main server for Verizon's LTE.

The T-Bolt is a really good phone. The only down fall is the battery life.
