I'm in Minneapolis as well: I work in Golden Valley, but came from home in Cottage Grove this morning. I have neither 3G nor 4G on either side of the metro. These outages are so obnoxious!!! C'mon Verizon, why am I paying for this service when it goes out at least once a month?!
Just contacted Verizon and confirmed OUTAGE in Harrisburg PA! Asked what is going on, they said they have logged a support ticket, and have no ETA or clue as to when this will be resolved, and what the issue is. (Supposedly Nationwide) Asked Verizon, why not update us on this OUTAGE via the Interent, on the Verizon website? They said they do not do this??? My God Verizon, do you think you could at least update us on your website somewhere???
I have data again, in central Oregon...for now anyway.

Yeah, that's just ridiculous.
I have the exact same problem now. Lancaster, PA, just white bars. If i turn off data and background data and back on again, I will get a 1x, then 3g; but as soon as I access a URL in the browser, it immediately goes to white bars. Thought it was my brand new phone, but apparently I'm not the only one suffering. I'm paying Verizon money to provide me a data plan on my phone; I'd like it working please.
I have been experiecing the same problem on and off since sunday night. Sometimes i have no service, can't send or receive texts or make phone calls and other times it's fine. THe only thing i have heard that makes any sense since Verizon is not reporting any outages is these Solar Flares we have been having that affect Radio Communications, GPS, cell phones....etc
Found some articles on it when I googled Solar Flares, but I would think it would be all over the news...
Data is out in Hattiesburg, Mississippi as well. It came on for about ten minutes around 9:00am, but is out again now. I called and they told me the same thing as stated in a comment above- that they are experiencing an outage and have no ETA on when the issue will be fixed. I just switched to Verizon over the weekend from Cspire because of this same issue... I hope they fix it soon!
I am in Torrance, CA (Souther California) and 4G has been out for a few days (today is 4/11/2012). Such an immature and unstable technology! I hate the fact that Verizon would be upfront about this and that there is no (at least I couldn't find) a network status page. They would probably only admit it after there is a outcry in the social media world.
