***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
iPhone 4 3G issues in the King of Prussia, PA area

This morning I have not been able to connect to 3G. I have all my bars and I have a 3G symbol displaying instead of the circle, but nothing will load for me. I wonder if it's a local outage or am I the only one having this problem in the area and need to contact customer service?

I'm having the same problem in Center City Philadelphia with my 4S, as is a friend of mine next door. Full bars, no data connection. But if I connect to wifi, I'm fine. I should add that it says 3G at the top, but the little circle keeps spinning. When I try to connect to a web site, e.g., it says no cellular connection and that I'm not subscribed to a data service. (Which simply is not true. Again, friend next door with a 4S is having the exact same problem.)

Same here in northern Delaware.  From Southern New Castle County to Wilmington, DE.  Between this reply and the other two comments, it's pretty obvious to be an outage.  No PR acknowledging the issue, tho.  Very poor cust service on VZN's part.  Even if cause or resolution is not known, submit a PR acknowledging it.

Ok, as least I know my phone isn't broken haha. Thank you for the input. I have a friend in the DelCo area with the same issue now too. Lovely... Hopefully this doesn't last long. Smiley Sad

I keep on getting unable to connect server although I have 3G 4bars. I have reset everything. I'm in new Hampshire. Did everybody do the update? I just noticed the inconsistant server recently. As well as the right side back and front get very hot. Mostly the silver band on the right hand side

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I tried the "turn off the phone for 10 seconds" trick, which usually does it for me, and I am still experiencing the issue. I did the update and I did notice that this has been a common occurance since than but it hasn't been this bad untill today. So maybe Apple is to blame for this. I have not however noticed the temperature increase of the device. Although I believe people who do NOT have Verizon are not having issues today, will have to ask around more.

I'm still having it in Ephrata, PA since the very early morning hours.  Huge interruption to my work productivity (or lack thereof), that's for sure.  Yet I don't see any news coverage or announcements about it yet...
