Try turning OFF the 3G data connection?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I've been having the exact same issue.  I spoke with Verizon and they were unable to help me.  Anyone with a better answer than "CL"?  (Turning off data connection doesn't get to the root of the problem.)

As far as I understand the wireless connection is the same as any wireless connection in your home.  It means that that is all that is available because it is a busy time.

Try turning your wireless router off, wait 30 seconds, and then turn it back on. Depending on your router you might have a switch or you might have to unplug it. Some times the routers get "stupid" and need to be rebooted.
