I am pretty sure there are some issues going with Verizon today in Southern California. I have not been able to receive or send texts or calls for most part of the day on my Samsung Brightside. I was in Banning California and San Jacinto California for today. My mom and grandma were down in San Diego California all day and they were not able to receive or send texts or call for most part of the day either. My dad was out in Perris California and Sun City California for work all day he was not able to get texts or calls most of the day either. My mom and grandma have the Droid 3. My dad has the Iphone 4s. And i, as i stated earlier, have the Samsung Brightside. Not sure if there any other Verizon customers having problems today in Southern California or not. Thought I would put it out on here and see what kind of responses there are.
