Just got off the phone with Verizon support. The midwest is having issues with the 4g phones. 3g only phones seem to not be affected. So if you have a 4g phone in the midwest, there are issues with data (no 3g/4g). They are having reports and told me they are experiencing problems.
FYI...fun time again people.
It has been up/down/up/down since at least 3:30pm Central Time. I didn't notice when it exactly started because I was on WiFi at home most of the day. Turned off WiFi when I left the house and noticed no network at all.
Sucks that it takes out 4g phones, even in 3g mode. My wife's 3g only phone was not affected.
On the bright side, no more threat of $2 'convenience fee'
Same with me. Was on wifi most of the day and noticed around 4pm, no data when I left the house. At least support told me there was an outage. I also told them to check their support forums since a lot of people are having problems.
