Verizon Wireless Data Outage? Is It Over?

  1. No outage here in Northern Virginia.

  2. Appears to be up and down… I drove from Upstate NY to Baltimore today, and I lost data services somewhere northeast of Philadelphia — data services came back for a short period of time (minutes), and now they are back down here in Baltimore.

  3. Here in the North Eastern part of Alabama I did notice my EVDO disappear for a little bit while driving through a rural area, but no data outages.

  4. I spoke too soon — I rebooted my 8830, and all data services appear to have returned to normal.

    FYI, while things were down, the homescreen displayed “1x” instead of “1XEV”. Affected services included BIS, BES, web browsing [all phones, not just BlackBerry], picture messaging [all phones], Mobile Web, tethering, etc. — SMS still worked as normal.

  5. It is over for the time being. It was caused by a cut fiber link in Boston. It has since been routed around while repairs take place.

  6. SMS would if phone service is still up. SMS uses a CDMA control channel, not EV-DO data.

  7. Ok…This explains things. Guess that I wasn’t the only one to have problems.

  8. So much for “It’s the network!” 😉

  9. Okay here in Western PA. Never lost data all day…

  10. No loss in NYC

  11. Didn’t notice any outage here in boston, must have been very short.

  12. Ever since this outage I’ve been having data problems here in Baltimore. I get 1x and 1xevdo for at least an hour a day. In store vzw reps are idiots and customer service is a joke when they don’t understand what you’re saying and do not speak English. Full power down and battery pulls temp fix but what’s the point in paying this ASStronomical bill when it seldom works and is often unreliable at best.
