4G appears to be working around the Chicago area, but upload speeds are slower than what I usually see.
During the last outage, once Verizon annouced service had been restored, I was still stuck with solid 3G service. I rebooted my Bionic, and it came back with 4g. Suggest this again for anyone still on 3g.
No 3g or 4g service in San Jose for a day and a half!!!!! Switched to weeks ago from sprint, bad mistake on my part. Never had issues with sprint. Worse part is verizon wont even come out with a statement letting its customers know what the problem and when they expect to get it fixed.
My mom and I both just upgraded to 4G smartphones. I got mine activated on the 26th, but then noticed that 3G would disappear and come back intermittently. (I'm not in a 4G coverage area right now, but I will be when I go back to school.) The same thing was happening to my mom's phone, which was activated (albeit with some trouble) on the 27th. We're in Ohio. Is Verizon still claiming that 3G service is unaffected by these most recent outages? I don't understand how it could do that. If the problem is restricted to 3G access on 4G phones, fine. But it would be nice to get the truth about the situation.
