Verizon 4G LTE Nationwide Data Outage Happening Once Again (Updated)

It has been a rough month for Verizon’s network to say the least. The entire network (both 3G and 4G) for LTE  customers appears to be down once again. This would be the third time this month alone. According to Twitter, the outage seems to be pretty sporadic with some in NYC having no issues while others are. Phoenix, Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Portland are also being reported as down.

As usual, we would love to hear your city and state in the comments and whether or not you are having issues. If you are, be sure to let us know when you see network access again.

Update 10:45AM:  Realizing that LTE customers do not have 3G service either. Just checked a 3G-only phone and it still has data and 3G service. Appears to be only LTE phones, but they are left without data completely.

Update 11:20AM:  3G is back here in Portland. 4G still appears to be down. Anyone else seeing changes?

Update 11:21AM:  Scratch that. Toggled LTE back on and now I no longer have 3G either. It’s almost like devices are taking forever to reconnect to the network. If you see 3G pop back up, do not toggle LTE on or off or you may lose connection again.

Update 1:16PM:  According to @CNBC, Verizon is investigating the issue. I would have hoped they had started investigating hours ago when it first went down.

Update 2:09PM:  According to our Twitter timeline, a number of you are seeing your coverage return. Still out in Portland though.

Update 9:32PM:  4G has returned here in Portland almost 12 hours after it went down. Has your data come back yet?

Stay here for updates…

    No 3G or 4G for me at all yesterday… or, as a matter of fact, for the last three days. No voice for me yesterday, either.

  • SteveD

    It is 8am in Fremont California (dec 29th) and my data is down again!  Looks like Verizon may take over from AT&T in quality ratings for 2012 if this keeps up.

      Looks like it was my phone I rebooted and it works fine now.

    In Jacksonville (FL), my VGN still shows 3G (2 or 3 bars), not 4G, at 9:48 EST…VZW LTE is ‘Long Time Idiot’ to me!

  • Tadashi Andrews

    still, no 4g in Austin, TX… I had it set all night to 4g, woke up and it was still no 4g data and 3g off.

  • Not sure if anyone stated this – but in Columbus Ohio – I was out of the 4G service from approximately 11am – 4:00pm 12/28/2011.

    Luckily, I had a wi-fi fallback – did not help though as I needed the GPS with maps and my blue tooth headset was severely hampered – could not use voice activated calling or texting.

    LA is back up and faster than ever! I’m consistently getting 38-42Mbps DL, when before I was getting 17-23Mbps. For VZ a network outage means major upgrades are being implemented.

  • back on in annapolis as of 7:00 AM EST.  not sure when it kicked on since i was on wifi at home.  gnex.

  • I plan on calling them and demanding to be comped my Data plans fee on the two lines that have a 4G device, both Gnex’s. Just don’t take no for an answer and remember, that as long as you don’t become violent over the phone, they really can’t hang up on you. Keep on escalating the call up until you get someone who has the ability to do it. When I deal with situations like this in the past, I usually use the line “Well maybe you can’t do it, but I know someone there can, put me through to that person.”

      Good point, when BlackBerry services go out they are supposed to comp for the lack of service and if the outages are more than an hour and say run into a day or two or three they need to pro-rate your data.  No service, no charge.

  • In between Chicago and Milwaukee, I didn’t have any 4G all day Wednesday. Even at 10pm when I went to bed I didn’t have it. Woke up this morning around 5am and its back. This is starting to get pretty old Verizon.

    Got mine back in WA, but I don’t know when because my GNex got stuck in 3G mode.  I finally switched to CDMA and then back to LTE/CDMA for it to come back.

  • Angelbowler2002

    We still don’t have 4G in Hamlet, NC and don’t know when we will. So must use 3G until we do. However, most of the time we don’t have any data connection at all. Can be working on something and i t goes out. I understand we must wait for 4G to make it to us, but we should be able to rely on 3G until it does. We spend more time down than up. For what we pay this is rediculous (this applies to all phones not just 4G phones).

  • Still out in Fresno, CA

    4G back online 8:50pm….lasted 45mins back offline since 9:35pm Redondo Beach, CA. This is a joke.

    Just heard blip on local news that a solar flare could cause radio blackout. Not a clue what that means! Do any of you smarty pants know if it could it cause cell/data outage? Hope this isn’t a dumb question. Just very curious, though.

    I love how people love to hate on Verizon for having the guts to try and actually roll out a nationwide LTE coverage in a 3 year time frame and get pissed for a day of downtime. I bet these same people claim that their phones must suck when they have a force close. They must believe in a magical perfect technology that exists somewhere that never has problems and has unicorns and rainbows and…

    i am more than angry – i was sold my phone in the middle of this mess – they didn’t inform me – now  I have no phone service – over $300 later- I can’t contact work or patients – time for a civil suit? 
     I want some justice for them out reaching – INTER and INTRA NATIONALLY-  laying off workers during the heaviest seasons( ie Christmas holidays) while counting their change in pennies without regard for the consumer – and I’m an independent Republican, TIME TO RE-THINK how the business of providing is ruled by the business of  lying about what is provided – not the American dream- quit bitchin’ and start doin’. I am grateful for the effort and disappointed with the result of our ‘greatest software minds”.  Please quit insulting my intellegence. I may be ” Tech challenged” but I am not stupid! Forget the “beta tests” and ‘time to get online’ – if you can’t produce- don’t say so-
    I am continually amazed at the younger population accepting – ‘oh,they will make it right in a year or so’ all the while paying for the final produce without the service —  I am also angry I listened to the same– meanwhile waiting for service——

  • I’m sorry, but I must also add that Verizon has given me 12 years of above excellent service, and this 4g is the bomb, I live 23 miles from the nearest 4g tower in Hilo… and I get 2 bars of 4G service, which is enough for me to get 20MB/s download speeds. I just can’t say enough to truly thank Verizon for such a wonderful service… Aloha

  • damn it i want my 4g!!!

  • I, like many other apparently, am phoneless due to this. My Nexus delivered today, tried to activate, only to be put phoneless while attempting to port my number over. Went to Verizon to see what was up and the lady told me I had “burned up the SIM card” because it had a temporary number on it from Radioshack and it could not use a new number (I switched from Sprint so the device shipped with the SIM installed and a temporary number on it). How exactly that makes any sense at all considering I did exactly what the prompts said, is beyond me. Anyway, hopefully I’ll have my Nexus activated without having to get a new SIM by tomorrow. Can’t take being phoneless much longer…

    • Anonymous

      Same here, pretty much have spent the day looking at my G Nex and sighing(after spending roughly 45min on the phone with verizon while they were trying to activate it).  Might as well try to get a refund for shipping costs from this….

      • For some reason I was never even charged for mine. I bought it from Radioshack for like 229.99 shipped and it originally took it out of my available balance in my bank account, but then it went back into my account, and I have the phone and the money. Don’t know what the deal is. I am going to be more than pissed of if I have to go back to Verizon for the 4th or 5th time this week to get a new SIM…and if they try to charge me for it I am going to raise hell. I’m not paying for something that is not my fault.

    • Dbs

      Call he port Dept with veizon. You don’t need a new one. I changed a number 2 days ago. I didn’t know until then.

  • Rick Portillo

    Nothing yet in San Diego 🙁

  • Dma1984

    If you pull your sim card out and re-install you should be able to pull 3g. This is for 4g-lte phones only. I had the same problem, at least you can get 3g until 4g comes back online. Hope this helps

  • Jmtanzo

    Still nothing here in Newport Beach. I got my replacement Thunderbolt around noon and that’s when I noticed no 4G when I switched the 4G Sim over and tried to activated the replacement, but thank god it worked. I didn’t even need to do the #228 but I will do it just in case once the network is back up. Just wondering if Verizon is gonna credit us something for all these outages….

  • Jonathan Ly

    I think what makes all of this funny is that people think its “being smart” to “keep their options open.”

    Let’s be honest. The unreliability is only a factor, which, in an effort to provide a better network, I personally can forgive, is TRULY only a factor if you have the 2GB Plan. 

    If you were lucky to have the 4GB plan for 30 bucks, I think its pretty dumb if you’re willing to give that up for AT&T’s BS. 

    Look at it: AT&T is late to the Party. In real world tests, Laptop users were pulling down 25 MBps in 40 cities. When AT&T launched their network in 5 Cities, they matched double that, BUT, the five cities were: San Antonio, Houston, Dallas (All within a 300 Mile triangulation of each other), Atlanta and Chicago. No Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Miami, San Fransico at launch, WTF? Verizon LTE is still pushing 3 MB a second now, and being in LA, I know a lot of people are using LTE phones. 

    And if anyone with an Unlimited Data plan is willing to drop that for 2GB, THAT is being shortsighted. Look at the way Google Music is being handled: The Cloud is an inevitability. At home, sure, at work, probably, Wi-Fi will work for you. But if you’re driving around, if you’re traveling, good luck.

    People need to be rational. If you really have so many escape plans, you might as well have used them already. You’re looking for an excuse to complain and look all smart and **** and you look more like children than anything else.

    3G only here in KC, MO. I didn’t realize there was a problem because I leave my GNex on 3G unless streaming video or hosting wifi hotspot. Tried to switch over and no 4G so I started troubleshooting. After 15 min. with no success, I decided to check Droid-Life. Should have known it was Verizon’s issue again. This is getting out of hand. My phone automatically dialed *22899 while I was typing this. After about 2 min. the call ended without any announcement of success or failure. Looks like I have 1 additional bar but still no 4G.

  •  Central Los Angeles here, had no network connection for about 30min or so I would guess but it’s connected again. Not the end of the world for me, but maybe there are people with a longer lasting outage

  • Also, if you work at a Verizon store, be wary of anyone calling “on behalf” of Verizon, asking for your login information or computer information to help assist them with “getting the tower back up”. Weve had two phishers call in the last hour trying to capitalize on the 4g outage.

    • Anonymous

      VZ network operations doesn’t need to call anyone, they can see devices connect and authenticate to the nodes and towers before you do. the only reason they would call would be to ask you to look out the window to see if some drunk parked his car into the tower or if there is an ongoing power issue in the area (which they would know anyway since the battery system would kick in and alert).

      Really wild that phishers are on their game for this one. that is almost impressivly fast to be honest.

      • Yea. Well even some of our reps have been duped before by these guys. They called this time in such a timely fashion that any relatively new employee would consider it legit. It was pretty incredible…

      yea,,, the LTE network is actually up but the services that authenticate the LTE SIM cards in the phones is the problem. if you can’t authenticate the data traffic won’t pass on through to the edge routers and out to the internet.
      that authentication happens every 6 hrs i believe, when that service croaked as that timer on each phone went off and couldn’t authenticate you “lost 4g”.

      either way no SIM authentication service means no high speed porn for me and no new SIM activations for you… i am sure they will have it fixed in a couple of hours. sucks though

      in the galleria right now, lost 4g about an hour ago, 3g rocking like it always did after i set it to CDMA only.

  • Go to just CDMA.  It will bring up 3g coverage.  For some reason, when you are on both LTE and CDMA, it will not pick up the 3g signal or won’t switch over.  On LTE/CDMA I was getting nothing.  Switched over to CDMA only…got 3g fine. 

    • Anonymous

      if you want to know why it won’t switch to 3g when on LTE/CDMA because you are getting a 4g signal (you should see it connected to eHRPD:13 or 14 but you can’t transmit any data through the VZ network. but the phone sees a 4g signal so it won’t switch since it is only supposed to connect to 3g when there is no 4g, it isn’t programmed to see if data will actually move over 4g just if it is there.

      changing it to CDMA only of coarse is the answer right now. FYI if you are curious.

      seriously? ok so verizon charges you the same wether you are on 3g or 4g it
      is “data access”. the 3g network hasn’t been down this month, the 4g well we all
      know that story. so you are going to sue them why? they haven’t broken their
      part of the contract to provide data access, it is slower than the 4g but it is
      still there, you can still make phone calls, still send text messages and still
      surf porn on the browser, it just takes what seems like forever for the video to
      load on 3g.

      the sue first mentality is not always the right one. now if a company sets
      out to intentionally screw you i would agree with you but you have to understand
      sh*t happens by accident. they don’t want you to be without 4g anymore than you
      want to be

  • Raleigh, NC – My Galaxy Nexus just dialed *22899 by itself.

  • Bryan York

    If you guys switch from EHRPD mode to Hybrid mode, you’ll get 3G, FYI. It can be found in the “secret menu” on most phones.

    • Anonymous

      How do you access the “Secret menu”?

      • Bryan York


        I think HTC has a method as well. It might be ##778# in the dialer.

        • Bryan York

          Actually for HTC and maybe Moto, Dial *#*#4636#*#*

        • Anonymous

          On my Galaxy Nexus I did the 4636 one and it took me to the menu, but I’m not finding the setting to switch between EHRPD and Hybrid mode. It has a “select preferred network type” setting, and it’s currently on “GSM/CDMA auto (PRL)” but i’m assuming this is the same setting you can access in the regular menu that lets you switch between LTE/CDMA and CDMA only

          • Anonymous

            no just go into settings->wireless networks->more->mobile networks and change it from CDMA/LTE to CDMA only. then wait a minute (you may have to kick airplane mode on then off if it doesn’t get 3g back in a minute)

  • DCABuckeye

    Have had no interruption in 3G service while in LTE/CDMA mode.  Have not toggled, but there is no 4G.  Last week Verizon denied that there was a problem with 3G when the 4G went down.  That’s true, UNLESS you own a 4G device, then it indeed was down.  That’s semantics.

    I miss AT&T.  Well….. maybe not.

  • At the very least 3G is up in Baltimore, MD. I get no 4G service in my building so I just leave the phone in CDMA mode at work. I’ll have to check 4G when I leave here in about an hour or so.

  • 08fordranger

    I don’t believe this is nation wide due to the fact I am using a 4g phone and still have a data connection. No I’m not in a 4g area but this article makes it sound like if you have a 4g phone you have no data coverage at all right now.
    secondly just wait till Att has had their 4g up for more than a couple month. I am willing to bet once it becomes bigger Nd more customers have 4g phones in their hands that network won’t handle near as well as it is now. We all know how their 3g service is what really makes you think their 4g will be different? Lol

    DC had 4G for at least awhile when the outage was first being reported (I upgraded a couple apps to verify my Bionic wasn’t lying about having 4G). It dropped sometime after the lunch hour, but 3G seems to have returned sporadically in the last 15-20 minutes.

    Weird thing happened to me….I had no 3g data on my RAZR starting from about 1am Tuesday until sometime last night after midnight.  BUT I did have 4g service.  I didn’t think this was possible but it’s true.  Because of the area I live in here in Phx (by north mountain) my 4g cuts off when I’m home and can only get 3g, but yesterday.  VZW tech support couldn’t figure it out and is sending me a new RAZR.   

  • Dustin Wehmeyer

    I just got off the phone with customer service (11:30AM PT) she did say that the outage probably better described as a “SIM card outage” as it was affecting all devices with SIM cards regardless of 3g/4g LTE/CDMA.  Other than that not very helpful.

  • Flyinion

    Apparently I have to take back my last comment, SF has infected Sacramento and 4G is gone.  Just got out of my meeting and my Nexus is stuck in 3G.  It has data though and 3G is working fine.

    Frakking Verizon.  Figures I finally get the Nexus and keep getting 4G outages.  Idiots!!!

  • David Richins

    Well, came here to find exactly this out… Can care less about the 4G, 3G is just fine for me… but no data at all is a serious problem. I use Google Voice for my text messaging, it’s how I communicate with my wife. Now that I’m on my work computer I can access it, but this is a problem.

    • Anonymous

      in the same boat – GV is awesome but with these outages it’s getting a bit difficult

      • David Richins

        I can handle fluctuating bars too, even at 2 bars you can still get solid service, but when it switches between 3g and 4g it takes a few minutes of no service before it refreshes. That’s annoying. I desperately hope it can be fixed in software. worst part is I factory reset my phone before I checked the news like a dummy… now I’ve got nothing til it’s back up.

  • I lost all data for about 10 Minutes in NYC.. i’m back on 4G LTE.. and as for AT&T’s LTE being more stable, they might have taken cues from these Verizon outages, but as more and more phones get on the LTE bandwidth, I think outages are inevitable in any case.

        Yeah, i got nothing on the North East side of GR for my Bionic.

        Maybe Verizon should be paying my Comcast Cable bill since my phone is using up bandwidth from my cable modem for data at the moment.  So, I guess this means that my data limit is down to 250GB from unlimited.

      You know, this is really getting old.  I demand a legitimate explanation from Verizon as to the root cause of the problem.  Is it the same issue every time, or are the outages simply coincidental?  I demand to know what the problem is and what they are doing to make sure it doesn’t keep happening.  My company’s clients demand that of our hosting services, so I’m now demanding it from my service provider.

      Boo-hoo. So it goes down for a few hours, a few times a month, in a few markets. You realize you are still getting in the neighborhood of 98% up-time on a network that is barely a year old, right? This right here is the problem with Americans, their ever-expanding sense of entitlement.

      • It’s the third time this month. If I pay $30 a month for a service, excuse me for expecting it to work.

      • Are you kidding me?  My 70 year old father is much more expecting of service than I am.  If anything, expectations of entitlement are decreasing.  However, I agree with Tony K – I am paying $90 a month JUST for data on 3 lines and that contract is for a full 30 days of service.  I’m not expecting them to refund the full month for one outage, but I want the money returned for the period of time the service was unavailable.

  • Mike

    AT&T is likely to have less problems with their LTE rollout. They might actually advertise they have the most reliable 4G network. Verizon 3G is reliable. 4G, not so much.

    • Anonymous

      Since it was released with the Thunderbolt I would have to agree with you. It seems as though it’s still in “Beta”.

      I am going to keep an eye on att. I think they will do 4g in a more “correct” way

    • Locke

      I’m keeping up with AT&T’s LTE rollout. If it turns out well then I’ll be switching. Plus, I don’t have to be subjected to Verizon’s whims on releasing global sliders. With AT&T, I can get any slider either here in the US or in Europe.

      • Anonymous

        I’m not going with AT&T no matter what for many reasons

        1. AT&T’s current network is piss poor
        2. Their tech support is a JOKE
        3. They drop calls…… way too often. 
        4. They have horrible 3G coverage
        5. They just suck

        • Tre

          As a former AT&T customer (now with Verizon), I have to say that I don’t agree with you. I think you’re just jumping on the bandwagon with everybody else who believes in those TV commercials. AT&T’s 3G network is definitely faster than Verizon’s. I never had any problems with dropped calls on their network. Granted that AT&T’s LTE network is a lot smaller than Verizon’s, but has it failed yet? NO! So, maybe they’re doing the right thing by testing it out in large cities first before deploying it all over the country (like Verizon did). Can you text and surf at the same time on Verizon’s 3G network? NO!

          Anyway, I only switched to Verizon for their big LTE network and the Galaxy Nexus. And I’m regretting the decision every time the network goes down.

          No, this post was not sponsored by AT&T. I would rather switch to T-Mobile if they have the Galaxy Nexus. 

          • Anonymous

            No. Driving through the country in central parts of my state I have always had 4 bars of 3G. 
            AT&T’s 3G is not fast when your ping is through the roof: http://d.pr/omHS

            AT&T dropps calls like flies near me.
            Can you TALK and surf the web on Verizon 3G? Yes you can. My HTC Thunderbolt can talk and surf on 3G. Who cares? My attention is on the caller.

            I switched to Verizon for the exact same reasons as I said in those reasons above. I have T-Mobile provided by my employer and I love them. Don’t think I am bias for vzw…

          • Go SVDO

            You can text and surf on verizons 3G if your using a Thunderbolt or Rezound as they seem to be supporting SVDO or something like it.  I have been on a Rezound in an area where there was NO 4G LTE, and it was very happy surfing the web while on a call..

      • Mike

        I’m doing the same thing. Coverage and reliability in areas I would use it is the same based on several friends’ AT&T phones. The automatic global capability is a big plus for me too.

        • Open Minded

          I always keep my carrier options open. I’m not blind. I don’t forever
          judge something based on the past. I’ll keep up with the AT&T LTE
          news. Who knows, it may turn out better than Verizon’s LTE.

          • Linden

            I agree. It only hurts you if you keep yourself ignorant of alternatives. Kind of reminds me how some older people still think Hondas and Toyotas are still the most unreliable cars you can buy.

          • Elliot323

            All you guys are retarded, AT&T sucks. Their analog sucked, their 2G sucks, and their 3G sucks, it has sucked in the past and it currently sucks, so based upon that AT&T’s 4G will also suck. Just because Verizon 4G is having some outages as they deploy LTE that absolutely doesn’t mean AT&T’s will be better.

          • Mrboombastic

            i agree. everyones getting all worked up cause verizon had some issues. Tmobile and sprint and Att have way more issues with their networks all the time. Im speaking from expierence since ive had all three before. But ive come to Verizon and hands down they are the best by far. 4g speeds are amazing. Im not switching cause of a few outages.

      • Malus

        Keeping track of AT&T also. Friends using AT&T here also have zero reliability problems.

          Doesn’t change the fact that AT&T blows. 

      • Skinja99

        CDMA does warm handoffs. GSM does not. That is one reason why ATT always has the most dropped calls.

        With CDMA your phone can actually be using two towers at once.

    • Jason Frasier

      I have the Skyrocket on ATT and have never had a problem with data connectivity while in an LTE area, or outside an LTE area for that matter.  It’s been very reliable.  

      • Tony Allen

        Then you must live in a bubble that AT&T loves.. In fact, I know you do, if you’re using AT&T LTE.

      Why would AT&T’s LTE network be any better than their 3G network?  They haven’t been able to provide their customers with a reliable network before so I don’t imagine they will be able to change their ways now.  That is unless they intend on putting copious amounts of their profits into improving infrastructure, which I definitely don’t see happening. 

      • Gus719

        I certainly hope AT&T puts more resources into their LTE network. I wouldn’t want Verizon to have more reason to increase fees and phone prices. Monopolies are bad.

        • GizmoDude

          At this rate Verizon won’t have a monopoly because it seems all carriers are going to be unreliable.

      • richard melcher

        I definitely don’t see it happening especially after they just lost 4 Billion for no good reason. AT&T spends more money bribing congress than updating infrastructure.

    For those who have 4g once it goes out and its out for lets say 1 or 2 days are you calling up and asking for a refund of your data plan (Partial obviously). You bought a 4g phone for 4g service and paying accordingly a month. If those services are not available your entitled to a refund. At least that’s how it use to be. 

    • akhi216


    • Irishfascist1986

      How do you figure, your paying accordingly its the same price as 3g besides do you really need another $2 credit on to your bill, its a new network its going to have problems.

        Have these outages only affected 4G devices or 3G as well? I think even the 3G only devices like iPhones have been affected as well!

            its been 4g authentication, and the 4g sim that has been having problems. Even when in a 3g area it still uses a different authenication to connect to data.
