Comments on news posted 2011-12-28 15:11:59: Several users have written in to note that Verizon Wireless is once again suffering through another wireless data outage impacting a massive number of customers. ..
When you call Verizonwireless they will not give you a credit for $20.00 they will provide a credit based on the outage so for example. So say that outage lasted 24 hours and if you are on a $30.00 data plan they will get the plan divide that by the number of days in the billing cycle and calulate the difference of the when you were out of service. This is part of Verizon wireless service and it part of the terms and conditions which is located on www.vzw.com at the very bottom of the page.

Re: The cell phone towers get to play games these next few days!
Interesting!.. I was going thru the Holland Tunnel and I pulled over in JC for a min. I was checking my email and a txt from my son. I literally saw the 4g icon go away and saw the 1x lite up.. I said not again Article from PC MAg is interesting -- My opinion on religion and science? Science builds airplanes. Religion flies them into buildings.
I have no 4G and just thought that it might have gone down or that the 4G radio in my HTC Thunderbolt was just trading off to 4G again. I usually don't have 3G when 4G goes out but for once I do and maintained the 3G all day. Also noticed that my battery lasted longer today too.
I'm surprised the bloggers haven't blamed RIM for this outage. Verizon's recent combined outages have lasted longer than RIM's did, yet you don't hear the same vitriol against Verizon. I'm just sayin....
You'd almost have to suspect sabotage...pretty hard to believe they have had 4 (or is it 5?) widespread nationwide outages in a very short period of time, relatively speaking. Angry union workers still bitter over the contract dispute? Just saying...
DEMAND bill credit, even if your using a Verizon MVNO such as Straight Talk! If they say no, then push further with the State Attorney general's office filing a complaint! The largest carriers went out of their way to "limit" unlimited, so you should hold their feet to the fire in getting what you pay for!
It puzzles me (well, not really) that there is no info coming from Verizon about this. That sort of behavior is not acceptable in this day and age. They trying to blame vendors for letting themselves make some bad changes again?
