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…

  • Spassmeister

    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.

    I just got back from a weekend in NYC, and the 4g LTE signal is amazingly better there than here in Boston. I was starting to think there was something wrong with my Thunderbolt how the signal seemed to bounce between 3g and 4g much more frequently than I would’ve thought, but now I know its just a really weak signal here in Boston.

  • Rivagejewelry

    I activated my Thunderbolt on Tuesday night and had been trying to port my old number from ATT. Nobody tried to stop me despite the fact the 4G network was down already. I went into a Verizon store to port number because I got 3 different explanations about getting this done. They did it yesterday — again despite the problems with 4G — and guess what, the number ported from ATT right away. And now I have NO phone at sll. Started with 2 phones and was assured the transition would be seamless and now I have nothing. Im in activation limbo with ATT number disconnected and Verizon 4G down. Nobody can tell me when my phone will work. Im beyond frustrated. I had great trepidation about letting go of my ATT phone after 12 years of great service and now I know why. They may not be activating phones now, but for those of us who did just hours before the big 4G breakdown, we are hurting. My cell phone is my only phone, as it is with many people, and I cant email my way through the day. My ATT phone usage was for everything and often had 6000 mins a month. Now Im phoneless. I know that sounds pathetic, but if you use your phone for business, what the hell are you supposed to do without any way for people to communicate with you? Im giving this one more day and then Im done. I will do whatever I have to and get out of this mess.

    New Thunderbolt arrived in mail last night (thank you Amazon) but can’t activate. Verizon store says this phone requires the 3G/4G network for Thunderbolt to activate (I’m wondering if it is possibly a different network than standard 3G because it allows voice/data at same time?). I’ve got wifi though, so I’m having fun loading up all the apps I’ve read about for weeks.

  • Valid Email

    In Fort Worth, TX, my t-bolt 4g speeds are pretty good for the 30-45 seconds of connection time i get. After that, it’s several minutes of no data connection. Switching to CDMA makes no difference at all. Also, this is the 2nd phone and 2nd sim card.

  • J97k

    Reading PA -last night my thunderbolt literally shut down and rebooted itself. Lost all internet connection. Tried everything from powering off/on, removing batter and sim card, turning on/off airplane mode….was on the phone with Verizon for over 45 minutes and ended up having to do a factory reboot……wasnt fun having to reset all of my stuff again but now I am at least connected and usually have 3G.

  • BCPORTER

    Received thunderbolt 4 g verizo over a week ago. Computer functions are great. Phone sucks !! Constantly garbled, did 2 master reconnects, still garbled, HTC say blame Verizon, Verizon says blame apps…….phone function is very severely garbled (also bought ill fitting extended battery, miserable design to plug in charger to phone) VERIZON THIS PHONE IS CRAPPY ! !

  • Greater New Orleans area, 4G as I type this. This weekend I saw some flashes of 3G, 1X, and even nothing from time to time.

  • Psychofalcon114

    For those of you just getting the phone and not seeing any 3g our 4g coverage, looks like you have to do a factory reset and completely restore your phone, it’ll pick up signal after that. This whole deal is getting really annoying. There are a ton of bugs. I hope they compensate all us TB users for our troubles… When I get 4g signal, it’s so patchy and glitchy that after it sits and thinks a while, it connects to 3g then computers the request. So far data speeds on 4g have topped out at about 200 kbps for me on a good run……….

  • Nckmirza

    Rockville, MD no 3G/4G for past 8 hours pretty mad!!!

  • cajundood

    Got the Thunderbolt today in Houma, Louisiana. First they told me that it would take 45 minutes for the phone to start picking up 3G/4G so i left and went do some things. Two hours later I go back to the store for still no data coverage with no 3G/4G and they called tech support and they said my account was properly configured. Wait 24 hours and then if not bring it back to the store was my answer. They said they were having network issues, but the display thunderbolt at the store was connected fine with no issuse at all.

  • Soaisdg

    3G out in Syracuse NY for over 30hrs

  • Knoxvillehomes

    I am in Knoxville, TN and my 3G/4G does not work on my Thunderbolt. Verizon customer service said they cannot figure it out and will call within the next 2 weeks when they can figure out what to do.

    • mad charlottean

      dude, in 2wks u can kiss yr return good bye… i’d call again and keep pissing them off for their screw-up

    • houndrunner

      in SC not working on mine either. About 1/2 doz techs have given me hundreds of non working solutions. Final solution is hard reboot at a store so they can save all my stuff. Or new phone or maybe one then the other. this sucks big time.
      VZ should give us a 4 free months of service.This is proably why data plans are free till May 15 bet all peoblems magically resolve that day.

    I live in Rockford, IL (approx. 100 miles west of Chicago) and I just bought the Thunderbolt yesterday. I have had on and off 1x but no 3G. I called technical support who says that there is a network outage for the TB and he didn’t know if it pertained to the area or the entire network.

    • Anonymous

      I just did a factory data reset and now I’ve got my 3g back. I hope it decides to stick around for a bit.

  • Mel

    I live just north of Raleigh, NC and for 1 week engineers have been working with my Thunderbolt connecting to my network extender. Droid 1 had no problems, my husbands Droid X = no problem. Tested internet connection and its fine. But the TB won’t stay on the network extender, it bounces on and off. I have about 4 days left before I have to return the TB. It’s a shame cause I think the phone rocks, but useless if I can’t use it on the network extender.

    3G Data is fine up here in Mendocino County in Northwestern California 🙂 We don’t have LTE 4G yet, so that’s a moot point here.

  • Kevlar

    In Orange, CA and no 3G or 4G. They thought it was the phone and has me swap it out. I called customer care and they said there is no outages in my area. WTF. Might have to return this phone even though some of the best devs are on it.

  • Jpm5107

    Bought my tbolt today right outside of philadelphia with no problems. I mentioned to the rep my worries about the battery life but he said he expects a software update in the next few weeks to help out. He also owns one so that made me feel a little better. The phone itself feels great and i can def tell the difference with 4g. It sucks you cant choose either 3g or 4g especially when you live on the outskirts of a major city and it flips back and forth non stop.

      *#*#4636#*#* starts a tsting app that allows you to turn the 4G radio of. choose cdma (prl auto) so you get 3g and 1x

    Too bad I didn’t know this before I returned mine today for an iPhone. Verizon, I don’t have time to be your guinea pig. Get it right the first time or postpone the darned launch will ya?!

  • Yeah i had a hard time activating my Tbolt. it was stuck on 1x then they swapped out the sim card and still, then all the sudden it was kicked in (after about an hour) and i’ve been prefect since.

    P.S. O.G Droid you will be dearly missed 🙁

  • Earl painter

    Ever since they started selling that crapple phone I’ve been having to deal with 1g. If their network couldn’t handle it they shouldn’t have bought it. You don’t move a million people on somewhere and then start worrying about building all your support systems.

  • LionStone

    Near SFO…Picked up my T-Bolt on launch day,solid 4g but it was acting a bit sluggish and by Saturday night it went bonkers and did the whole 1x, 3g, 4g dance. I re-booted and it was fine. Then late Sunday night, no internet! Monday morning went back to Verizon and swapped it out. At first, they were saying it was probably the storms that we were having. I said, none of my other phones ever went to 1x unless I was in the mountains, so no, I wasn’t buying that one. And I also said that this isn’t a Blackberry and I’m not gonna reboot it every morning 🙂

    Since then, solid 4g…yesterday flew to New York and solid 4g at JFK. Flew into Raleigh at 2:30a and solid 4g at RDU (yea, during the storms too) Now, since this morning, I’ve had solid 3g (unless it changed when I was asleep) but since awake, it has been solid 3g in Wake Forest, which currently is only 3g area.

    When I returned the first unit, I mentioned that my internal RAM is showing only 2.3gb and that I thought it shipped with 8gb? He looked at the demos after I told him that they show the same amount. He went back to look into his memos and according to Verizon, just from the operating system it uses that amount! Hmm, I don’t really care but I was a little surprised to find that out.

    though still sucking battery life. I get 4 hours per charge- thats basic radio/email and fb chat. Sad to say I may be returning this..: (

  • theres must be issues with the towers. mine is constantly switching from 3G to 4G and back and sometimes 1X. but i’m also getting different locations on the clock widget. i returned my phone, for a new one, due to battery and app issues, but i also used the GPS as an excuse too. it’s happening on the new one as well. i’ve seen Lithuania, Luxemburg, Hawaii, California, Vermont, and Ohio…..i’m in pembroke Pines, fl

    No issues in Boston, been using my T-Bolt all day over 4G. Only problem I have is a dead battery, but this phone is awesome so I’m over it.

  • At0msplat

    Original droid, Jacksonville, FL Been having issues with 3G for about a week or two. I don’t usually have any any issues with service but have been seeing alot of 1X where I know I should have 3G. Thought maybe it was the ROM I was using but Cyanogen has always been pretty reliable for me. I hope they get this straightened out. The 4G isnt a deal for me since I wont be gettig one till my contract is up. Hoping the the Quad cores are out by then!

  • Guest

    Houston, intermittent connection to both 3G and 4G. Primarily seems to be downtown and South affected.

  • Aaron G

    Phoenix, AZ here enjoying full 4G. On launch day, the Tbolt seemed to have problems with handing off 4G to 3G connection. All those problems have been resolved as far as I can tell. Now, if they can issue a software update to fix the battery issue, life will be sweet!

    Steady 3G all day long from when I walked out of my place Uptown and even now at work in the Financial District Lower Manhattan NYC.

    Been running Pandora all day long without a hicup.

  • Does anyone know how to reinstall the Froyo 2.2 Verizon Version manual? I unrooted my phone and some files are gone.

      I think you can download stock 2.2 from ROM manager, but I”m not positive.

  • Chiming in as requested, representing Nashville.

    After faithful service since Nov 2009, I dropped my Moto D1 with the noisy QWERTY keyboard for the surprisingly heavy Thunderbolt. I am still getting used to it, as I’ve only had since Saturday, but it has quirks.

    First off, 4G is awesome. Pretty much DSL speed, as advertised, though it sucks the life out of your battery. Must use sparingly. However, once you shut 4G off, I quickly realized that you CAN NOT pull data via 3G cell towers. Your choices are 4G or WiFi and that’s it. Thankfully there is no shortage of wifi at home & work for me, but the fact you are locked out of using 3G for data (phone calls & texting only) really irks me. Has anyone else reported this?

    Last complaint is that sometimes (10%) the bluetooth chooses not to connect with my car, which is annoying, to say the least. NEVER had an issue with this during my time with the D1.

    Trying to stave-off buyers’ remorse…

    • LeeInMKE

      I turned off 4G and wi-fi and was having no trouble pulling 3G data…never received any calls though, so I can’t speak for the voice/data simultaneous feature yet.

      • i’ve used the simultaneous already. are you sure people called you?

        • LeeInMKE

          You misunderstood me. I haven’t received any calls while surfing web, so I can’t say whether simultaneous works. Sorry for any confusion.

      • And you did this all with a Thunderbolt in a 4G area with both 4G & Wi-Fi turned off? (just looking to confirm). Thanks!

    • i think you’re having issues then if you can’t get data over 3G. i surf the web and download apps, update facebook and twitter..everything. you might need a new unit. Plus me and my friend have both noticed that we’re actually getting much better battery life while on 4G. i don’t know why

      • With my D1, I could use 3G standalone to surf web, run apps, hell even tether it to my laptop as a modem before we got wi-fi and ISP service last summer. That’s why I suspect an issue.

        I see other T-bolt users in 4G areas reporting they can push/pull data on 3G, so will take it back this weekend to see what’s up with mine.

  • C Sheen

    Right now at work in NE, Washington DC, my Thunderbolt is getting 4G at full strength. However, at home in Alexandria, VA, last night and this morning, the signal fluctuated alot between 1x, 3G, and 4G.

    • Dom

    • Do you have swype on your TB? How do you like it so far? My contact is up in May, and I may wait to compare against the Bionic, how is your battery life? I hear the Bionic has bigger battery, but less RAM. I really am used tot he swype on my Droid X.

      • I don’t have Swype on it, but I did install the Gingerbread keyboard. I like it a lot better than the Sense keyboard. || I really like this phone. The battery life on it is very lacking, though. The pro is that it’s a relatively quick charge from 0 to 100%. The bad is that you may have to do that once during the day. I purchased a 1650 mAh battery from Mugen Power to try out. I read good reviews regarding the myTouch 4G switching from standard battery (which is also 1400 mAh to this one so we’ll see. (The myTouch 4G and Thunderbolt batteries are interchangeable). If the Bionic and Thunderbolt were released at the same time, I would have probably gone Bionic solely because of the increased battery life of the former.

    My Thunderbolt wasn’t getting 3G or 4G this morning, and I went to Verizon and now I have a new Thunderbolt lol pretty happy too since I accidentally scratched the top of the phone trying to get the damn cover off and it was driving me crazy. They didn’t notice it though =D

  • Djspikezz

    Has anyone tried *228 then type 2 to update you roming capabilities? Doubt that will solve it but it doesn’t hurt to update. Since the 4G network is going through tons of changes and upgrades throughout the year maybe it might help to do once in awhile?

    My 3g in Santa Barbara, California is fine, no problems out here.

      Thunderbolt this morning was fine around 6AM.
      As it climbed to 9AM to 12-ish, it ran at 1X the whole time. I thought it was my phone so I restarted 3 times, but still the same.
      1PM tried to restart it one more time, and became back at 4G.

  • Jwmudb

    Went into a Verizon about 20 miles south of Boston. They were having significant neywork issues and, obviously, could not demo the Thunderbolt. They admitted that the 4G network went down last night and have no expected uptime. The Thunderbolt was having trouble maintaining any 3G covergae and the signal strength was very erratic….Looks like no upgrade today.

  • Anonymous

    You’ve got to appreciate Verizon doing the right thing in a situation where the network isn’t working as it should or as advertised. They delayed the Thunderbolt launch because it wasn’t ready and being that there may be issues now, they’re ready to suspend activation of the Thunderbolt until its fixed. On the opposite end of the spectrum you have AT&T who sells and advertises 4G phones and their full capabilities when they know very well their network isn’t ready and that the devices are poor excuses for 3G devices as is with the data capping. Good luck T-Mobile customers, if AT&T acquires you, you’re going to need it.

      Uh, lol… they aren’t voluntarily suspending activations. If their systems are down, then they can’t activate anything.

    they shud make a song about this..4g,3g,1g,or none,,not having connection isn’t any fun……That cud be the new Verizon LTE jingle…Pfffff….

      Have you called or gone back to a store to complain about this? Have you asked anyone else who is in your area if they are experiencing the same thing? If not then it’s kind of hard for you to say something sucks when you don’t know how deep the issue goes, whether it be the network or your phone.

      • Mgangrock

        hold on there,,,lol…

        first off,as long as i stay with in the confines of the forum rules i can say whatever i please.

        2cndly,yes i do have friends here in the area that are experiencing the same inconsistencies,yes i/we have gone to Verizon and spoke to them of the problem and came up with nothing ((needless to say the people of this fine site seem to know more about the phone and it’s services))

        Let me ask,,do you even own a 4g device? if so,,then i hope your services are good,if so then i’m glad for you.I on the other hand am not experiencing a good 4g service and i am somewhat disapointed.I am not going to return my Bolt i am merely going to be patient and hope Verizon corrects the issue because other than the inconsistencies i am very pleased with the fone.

        So at this point i think i have every right to express RIGHT NOW the LTE service “sucks dookie ” for me. ; )

        • Anonymous

          Then you’re right, you have every right to say that. That’s why I asked, because you didn’t indicate as such in your first posting.

          That’s why I didn’t want to assume because someone complaining without doing due diligence is a waste but you obviously did.
