Verizon 4G LTE Outage Happening Now? (Updated: Service Restored?)

Last night, we reported that DROID RAZR devices were running into a SIM card issue that was killing their 4G LTE. Original theories suggested that the issue was specific to the micro SIM used in the RAZR, but we are now seeing a variety of devices across the country dropping to 3G or 1X including the Thunderbolt, Rezound and more. My personal RAZR – which was working just fine – has flipped to being stuck on 3G  within the last 30 minutes here in Portland, OR. We could be on the verge of a nationwide 4G LTE outage.

And we should point out that this does not appear to be affecting every single person with a 4G device at this time, but there have been enough reports that we have reached out to Verizon for some help. Once we hear back, we will let you know.

Could be your answer to the Galaxy Nexus delay

Update:  Verizon has responded with this comment regarding the 4G LTE outage:

Verizon Wireless engineers have been working to resolve an issue with 4GLTE service that is affecting some customers’ 4G devices.  3G data and voice devices are unaffected.  All customers’ voice calls and text messages continue to go through. In the past 24 hours, some 4GLTE customers have reported their devices are operating on 3G data service where they would normally get 4G.  Some have reported no issues, others that data access is either intermittent or unavailable.  We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Here’s to hoping we see something change for the better very soon. We know that some of our readers have been experiencing an outage since yesterday afternoon.

Update 2:39PM:  After losing all service for 2 hours, I now have 3G back in some capacity. Anyone else?

Update 5:12PM:  Checked my RAZR and 4G LTE service is back up and running. Anyone else?

In the comments, 4G LTE or no 4G LTE?

  • Mark G.

    I just got my Deois Razr and It drops to 3G about 90% of the time and about 5 times now it says “no data connection”…… very disapointed!!!

  • Rcannici

    Razr in Portland Oregon still running 3G only. Sim Card issues still. I didn’t pay top dollar for all of these issues. I really wish 4G LTE would have been perfected before it was launched in the Portland Metro Area. This is a load of crap as far as I am concerned.

  • Awd111980

    I have the Droid Razr and the Droid Charge. My Razr will always drop to 3g while the Charge always has 4g LTE, called Verizon last night & the technical support representative that this is a Motorola issue and Motorola should have an update to correct this issue by the end of this month…should being the operative word… 

  • Dpry3580

    Got my Razr when it came out. I’ve NEVER lost full 4G; outside always 5 bars, 3 inside, just outside ATL. It only drops to 3 when I go to Rome, 1.5 hours from ATL. I wouldn’t consider trading this for anything else available. With ICS coming to it soon, even better.
    Typing this on my Lap-dock 500 by the way. This thing is amazing! Way better than the 100. Much better than any tab I’ve had. One device, 14″ screen, full keyboard, web-cam, full size SD slot, 2 USB ports, VGA out, Ethernet port, etc.
    Finally completely happy with a setup. Full size laptop with no booting! And 4G speed where ever I go (3g were less developed). Even then, can still surf without WiFi. 

  • Want 4G now!

    My HTC Rezound 4G worked last night but today only get 3G service in Seattle.

    Back on the saddle again. in Orange county CA. since 6:00. required a reboot. 4G and 3g working great.

  • RKA

    Intermittent problem with Droid Razr since Tuesday. Went to first Verizon store. All Razrs in the store had the same SIM card error. Employees did not bother to check with corporate. They replaced SIM card. Didn’t help. Went to second Verizon store, told they are experiencing network problems on a small number of Droid Razrs.  Today ( Thursday) I am getting No service, 3G service and 4G service occasionally. No variant of Verizon service is staying up.

  • Joey Kangaroo2010

    If you turn off your phone, remove battery, sim card for 30 seconds should fix this issue. Worked on thunderbolt and bionic.

  • Tboltuser

    JEEZ!  Back to 1x here in northern Cincinnati AGAIN TODAY.  Come on Verizon!

  • razr – back up and running as of 6AM in the ft.meade area (central md).  is also working fine in annapolis.  my wife’s bionic was also back up at the same time.

    I am glad that someone’s it back up. I have not had a data connection since somewhere around mid day yesterday. It is rather annoying that I sold my GPS because I had my Android and I have to travel today so it should be fun using a paper map/directions.

    Edit: In North GA by the way.

  • 4G back in northern VA, DC area since this morning (12/8); Droid Bionic!

  • I noticed this Tuesday night called Wednesday morning and they didn’t reveal this at all but they said they would ship me a replacement droid charge because it was the phone.  So i’m getting a new phone ro replace the used one i bought on CL.  Lucky me.

    My Razr has been in and out of 3g and analog since 2pm EST today… 4g is no where to be found. A little more then, Yes, we know its down, would be nice to hear from Verizon. UNACCEPTABLE This just may be my game changer!

    • Jspumphrey

      Lol switch networks and you will have unacceptable network speed all day every day. Who cares, its a fairly new network and kinks need to be worked out as they continue to light up more 4g networks.

        right… wife has sprint with no issues. get off the “my network is perfect” idea.

    I’ve got the Droid RAZR in the Phoenix, AZ Metro. I never received the SIM Card error, but all day today, and even now, the most I’ve had is 3g periodically throughout the day, but more commonly not even 1x coveage. This sucks, but I’m kinda glad – not really – that its not only me suffering thru this issue. I’ve had this phone since release day, and has been a solid performer, other than today…

    Good thing i saw this post i thought i had let my phone run dead wifi tethered last night and it killed my 4g.  I had no internet when i woke up.  Now im surfing 3g getting between 30 and 100k so ill survive till 4g is back on.  Its strange how the whole network is so connected that it can all fall at once.  Guess thats the disadvantage of 4g is stability.  I wont complain cause when its going i can get up to 40MB a sec on speed test and i always pull at least 2MB a sec on torrents or web.  Wish i could get a Nexus but this Samsung Charge does me fine.

    I’m new to verizon and am also experiencing a full 4G outage for the last few hours (and no 3G at times).

  • Bdiz13

    I work for a verizon dealer, 4g users can change their mobile networks to cdma under settings> wireless settings> mobile networks> network mode> cdma> then perform a soft reset you should have at least 3g coverage consistantly

    • Diablo81588

      Not always true. I’m sure the culprit is eHRPD again, which is required to access all data networks on Verizon if you have a 4G phone. So, even if you change it to CMDA only, its still not going to connect you directly to EVDO.

  • Darthseph23

    San Diego – 4G is off, have had 3G all afternoon.  I got hit with the “SIM card unauthorized” statement around 1200 local time.  I had no issues before that, including yesterday.

    My guess is they are resetting the entire LTE grid in an effort to clear the authorization issue.  I still have cell service and 3G data so I’m not too concerned.  It is an annoyance, and I’m very glad I don’t work at Verizon right now.

    Hard reset (Vol Down + Power) has brought it back for now.  I did get another “Sim unauthorized” earlier.

    No 4g and 3g was gone for quite awhile. Bionic in Connecticut.

  • I was on 3G service this morning/afternoon (to save battery life on my Bionic, which suffers from the data loss cycle issue) and then lost all data connectivity late this afternoon. After speaking w/ 2 Verizon Customer Service reps, I got sent on to tech support, and apparently the issue is also affecting some 3G areas as well as 4G (tech rep said she’d try to update the alert that customer service sees so they know it does affect 3G as well.)

    Northern VA area : No LTE, no CDMA data (not even showing a No Data Connection Available icon in the status bar).

    On a related note, they (both customer service and tech support) indicated that the planned software patch for the Bionic should be hitting this Friday (Dec 9th), with another patch slated for January (possibly ICS?)

    Bionic, Michigan, no data coverage whatsoever.

    To clarify Verizon’s statements, they did not say that 3G was unaffected on 4G devices.  They said that 3G devices are unaffected.

    4G devices are experiencing data connectivity issues (this includes 3G).  The issue is network-side and is being working on aggressively.

    Love that….3g is unaffected huh?  I just tried to activate a coworkers RAZR and it failed and also removed her old blackberry from service.  So, I called Verizon for get them to switch the phone back and figured I would see what would happen if I took my Bionic and tried to connect to the 4g since I mostly operate 3g to save the battery.  3g has been great all day by the way until I tried to connect to 4g, it didn’t connect and won’t connect to 3g anymore either!

      3G devices are unaffected.  4G devices are affected. The Razr is a 4G device (read: is affected).  I’m sure an OG Droid would take right off.

  • Dan Green

    Near SFO – “3G unaffected”?  No 4G or 3G, been on 1X all day.

    • parrothead

      have you tried disabling 4g, and going 3g only?   having 4g enabled on your phone can cause you to lose all 3g/4g data if the 4g network is technically “up” but it wont let you authenticate.  Going back to 3g only, which is still up & running, your phone wont try to authenticate to the 4g network, but instead try 3g, and you’ll connect.   4g is still broadcasting a signal, your device just can’t authenticate, or even if you can authenticate, something is going wrong on their end… if 4g is “up” but not working, your device will get confused and not try to connect to 3g, since 4g is “available”

    We are already in a nationwide outage.  All 4G devices per VZW can totally lose connection to the network on 1X, 3G, and 4G.  They are reporting no known repair time to fix this issue.  I am in VA and one Bionic device died last night, tablet died at 1600ET, and aother Bionic on my account died at 1630ET.

  • Anonymous

    I noticed earlier today that my HTC Thunderbolt struggled to get a data signal and then finally defaulted to 1X. UGH!!!! here we go again. I wonder if the same fix will work as last time by going into the dialer and going into developer tools and finding modem settings and then turning the eharp thing to off??????


    I upgraded to a Samsung Stratosphere this past Saturday and I noticed that my phone kicked back to just 3G for a little bit early yesterday afternoon and then dropped internet completely. The kicker is that I tried calling Verizon’s “amazing” technical support last night and all they did was keep pointing the finger at me like I had accidentally hit something in the settings menu or something. Now today when I went into the Verizon dealership that I got the phone at they informed me that there was a nationwide 4G outage but it appears that people that have phones specific to just 3G aren’t being affected, A friend of mine with just a 3G droid told me last night that his internet had crashed completely too so who knows. Verizon is crediting me a dollar for each day that I can’t access the internet/4G network so I strongly advise that everybody else call too and get their credits for however many days they are without a 4G service.

    Goes back to the thought that you don’t put something out until you test the hell out of it.  That includes putting more and more markets on 4g when it isn’t solid yet.  Fix the problem then expand.  Same goes with the 4g phones, I have had the T-Bolt and Bionic and from what I have heard and read about, the Revolution and Razr all have data handoff issues.  Fix the data then put new phones out!  What good is that shiny new car if it will only drive a few miles and then quit, then drive a few more and quit!

    my guess is that this is the reason verizon pushed back the release date of the galaxy nexus. they want to “ensure a the best user experience” and until they know what’s going on they won’t pull the trigger or a new device. hopefully they have smarter people in their it department than in their enterprise device department.

    Verizons response “Quit posting erroneous launch dates and we will flip the LTE switch back on.”

    • If they would quit telling their employees, managers, vendors, VPs, and indirect stores to prepare for these dates, then maybe we would. 😛

      • Jason Purp

        I read on the Phandroid forums that the higher-ups at Verizon were pissed off that the media was basically confirming the December 9th date, since they wanted the release to be silent. They realized how much info they put into everything, and that’s why it now says a date is coming soon on that thingy.

        This was the father of a son who works at tech support for Verizon.

          Really doubt they are going to push a release because their feelings are hurt.

          • Maybe they are just pulling the date and telling everyone that it’s not happening on Friday and will then announce Friday morning that it’s happening Friday morning. Trying to throw everyone off? 😛

          • Jason Purp

            That’s what the guy said. He still thinks it’s coming out on Friday, they’re just trying to make everyone think it isn’t, as if that’ll slow down sales at all.

            I honestly don’t think it makes much sense for them to delay this phone. Wouldn’t that be like stopping the sales of all 4G phones Verizon has to offer, just because not every location has 4G? That might be a bad comparison, but either way, I can’t think of a real reason for the launch to be delayed.

            This entire thing is so pathetic.

            You’re lucky you were gonna get an upgrade so early. Normally I have to call Verizon a good 5 times until they do that for me.

          • Tazkven

            I bet I go thru hell trying to get it again. I dont believe she changed my actual upgrade date which is like 2-13, lol. After she told me she couldnt do it til it was released on Friday, I asked if I could go to a Corp. store and get the upgrade when its released instead of mailing it and she said no, we can only do it this way. Looking back I should had asked for her ext. number or email addy, lol

            Much like anyone else, they get the sale registered to them. hence why it can ‘only be done that way’. It’s nonsense. You can go in the store, they can call channel support and they will get it pushed forward while you are in-store.

            I’ve spoken to multiple Verizon sales people. They always say the same thing: “We only know what you know.” They are VERY well aware of the leaks on the internet and so usually that’s their only source of information until a higher up sends an email.

            Basically, the woman was saying the 9th because she read it on the internet as the 9th, just like the rest of us.

          •  Half the time I know more then the reps at the stores in my area that and the tech I had to speak to yesterday at didnt even know how to use a tablet properly and was also downloading apps on my tablet to see if the connection was working.

            Well I hope that is the case. Regardless it doesn’t matter as I have one on hold (not that I expect them to sell out) at my local store whatever day they wind up coming out.  At this point I have such Nexus fatigue I’ve actually started to not care.

            The 9th is still not entirely out of the question for VZ retail.

            date is officially pushed to the 13th. I can vouch for that as a employee

          I find it hard to believe some guy who works in tech support would have any idea what the higher ups at Verizon are saying.    

          That being said I still hope your right.

          they are in no way evar going to get a silent release with a hype beast. they might as well profit from it.

          but meh. still got. if they delayed it for the outage i am…well okay with that i guess. i just get to wait a couple more days past my update. even if i am eating a ice cream sandwich a day since the preview in hong kong or where ever in october.

          Just my opinion… its not a “Droid”! VZW will not push this phonw as hard as the otgers. It would take sales away from their flagship lineup..

        So does this mean they’re going to stop selling all Verizon 4G phones until this is resolved? Or are they just blacklisting the GNex? Simply ridicuolous.

        I am a huge Eagles fan but this season is a disgrace.  We have a receiver who is afraid to get hit.  Our linebackers look like they are lost on the field and can’t fill a hole to save their life.  Corners can’t tackle.  Safeties might as well stay on the bench. Reid couldn’t coach his way out of a ziplock sandwich bag and he hired an under experienced moron to run the defense. On top of that we pay a quarterback 100 mil to ride the bench because our Howard Mudd midget offensive line can’t protect him…. They should just lose out so we get a decent draft pick.

        • Anonymous

          What a sad season, I have never seen a softer defense in Philadelphia.  People afraid to tackle and SOFT linebackers.  Andy needs to go, he never drafts defensive players and doesn’t take that side of the ball seriously.  If you need a good laugh turn on WIP to hear some people complain.

          • TROLOLOL


          • r8rs

            Most of all, your qb is completely over rated and has never proven to be a leader on the field, it also doesn’t help that he gets hurt every season either. Do you really feel that he’s been worthy of two $100 million contracts? The eagles would have much more success with a conventional style qb, like say matt barkley.

          • OG Droid

            Your are spot on; I never wanted Vick in the first place.

            likely because you pulled your battery in a topic about RAZR’s

            I suppose that could have been his reasoning….although I was under the impression that this topic was about an LTE outage nationwide, not just about 1 phone.
