Verizon Experiencing 4G/3G Data Issues, Thunderbolt Activations in Limbo?

We’re getting word from a variety of readers and a couple of Verizon stores, suggesting that 3G/4G data could be down in some areas.  We’re also hearing that Thunderbolt activations at stores could be stuck in limbo until the network comes back up.  Hopefully this doesn’t last long, we need screenshots of your home screens!

For now, if you could drop your city in the comments with status on your data, that would be very helpful.

Stay tuned…

    So, I have a 4G MiFi I took delivery of about a month ago here in San Diego in the shadow of QUALCOMM.  Worked LIKE A CHAMP (8 Mbps+) for about a week…that was in early May (May 3rd – 10th).  Then, the troubles started.  Suddenly all I got was the 3G Purple light on the modem, not the 4G Green light.  From 8 Mbps to 800 Kbps.  Sent verizon a message that “4g not working in San Diego” whereupon they called me and told me “yes it is”. Why do they do that??  I read then that there was an IMS issue that had been fouling up LTE across the country. I went to San Jose on a one day trip -Green Light! – but got back to San Diego where “it works” and…purple light.  Been that way ever since.  Purple today.

    My thunderbolt is stuck.  It’s at a screen that lists features such as reboot; power up; power down; volume up;  I can’t get rid of the screen and it won’t turn on or off.  Help!
