How is Your 4G LTE Connection Doing Today?

While my 4G and 3G connection seem to be operating normally today in Portland, we have had enough emails and mentions on Twitter from readers that are not having such a fun time to toss up another potential LTE outage post. We are getting reports out of Detroit, Indiana, Florida, Wisconsin, and more that have had issues for a number of hours today. Issues vary from readers have no connection at all to seeing their connection cut in and out sporadically.

So we’ll ask just as we always do – running into 4G or 3G connection issues? If you are, feel free to drop your city and state in the comments. With Verizon claiming to have (or in the near future) implemented a geographic segmentation fix, we could potentially narrow this down by region that is affected.

Also, it’s safe to assume that VZW is currently (as in this very minute) testing, tweaking and working on a number of fixes to prevent major outages from happening again. These issues that some of you are running into today, could just be from Big Red working to stabilize everything. At this time, we do not have enough reports to consider this a full nationwide outage.

     My 4g and 3g seem to connect fine. I have found that my WIFI also connects just fine; BUT my browser, market, and any other feature that SHOULD use WIFI will not. In fact as I am typing this note through my active network my phone tells me “no connection retry”.  I have set my wireless settings to static per a blog a I read, but that has not resolved the issue.  Any thoughts . . .and yes, my network is fine, my wireless connection on the phone is fine, password correct, etc.

    im in rochester NY and my bionic keeps switching between 4G and 3G sitting in the same spot at work…both are 3-4 bars…

  • tm3

    4g lte coverage out in los angeles (at least on my gnex).  3G is fine however.

  • Sarah

    I live in Richmond, VA. Bought a GNex last week (12/30). Richmond city has full 4G coverage. I was only able to pick up 4G a couple times….between work and home (which is a 3 mile trip). The phone would not pick up 4G in my apt or at work. One of my coworkers has the Thunderbolt and it picks up 4G fine in my work building. Also, had my wifi on and when I turned it off I completely lost phone signal and it took an hour to get the data signal back. Switching to airplane mode and back also causes a significant delay in gaining a data signal. Called Verizon and they said if I was in a building made of concrete or steel I would have problems picking up 4G or if there were tall buidings around.  Really? Wow. Aren’t most buildings made of those materials and don’t most major metropolitan areas have tall buildings?! Crappy answer from Verizon. So I returned my phone yesterday and am going to stick with my DInc until this issue gets resolved.

  • Round Mound of Rezound!

    In Cleveland, on the HTC Rezound and 4g hasn’t failed once!

  • Jhall

    Im located in Richmond,Va. But my issues are not Verizon…they are this crap Droid Bionic 4g phone…
    Drops data about every 30 seconds from 4 to 3 to no data…times out…have to air mode or wifi and sometimes that doesnt work. I’ll be lucky to finish this message before losing my data connection.

    Is there an update in the near future? Otherwise im going Apple!

  • Columbus, OH. Galaxy Nexus problems. 4G connection drops even with full signal strength. When I leave 4G area, it will not switch to 3G unless I reboot or make a phone call!? How wierd is that!?

  • this is getting insane, 3 weeks with intermittent data, being given the runaround

  • please call verizon if you’re having an issue

  • Anjama

    Hate to say it but here on Long Island, NY I’ve been having problems for the past couple of days. I called verizon, & they told me the best thing to do right now is to do a battery pull. Well guess what, it worked!!! I guess it will be a good new year!!

    It would be one thing if 4G was put and my GNex connected to 3G, i get no service and lucky for me i’ve been off work all week so i have been able to use my wifi. Verizon needs to get their act together… they are already the highest charging carrier and if i am paying to be on a “premium carrier” i want stable data connection 3G or 4G

  • GimmeData

    I’ve had data issues with my Nexus since purchasing it on launch day im on my second Nexus and still experiencing data issues. I will be in the same spot in my house and go from 2 bars on 4G to no data at all while my wife’s iphone has full bars. Now customer service is saying it might be my sim card. I must say i am pretty disappointed in the performance of the phone so far and im not sure if it is growing pains on VZW or if ICS is all this phone has going for it

  • Jamesmarcelino

    I had data issues yesterday in the Tacoma, WA area. Coming from a 3G area I was excited to be in a 4G area. Unfortunately, I had no data connectivity with my Thunderbolt. Pretty embarrasing when my brother with a 3G Windows Phone (on VZW too) was able to get the scores and I couldn’t.

  • Alex

  • Guest

    No 4g or 3g on in the Bay Area on my bionic since about 2 am this morning.  On my Xoom I can pick up 3g in CDMA only mode but in CDMA/LTE I get nothing.  

  • phonepeasant

    Today, right now at 2:05 I’m going to VZ and returning my Nexus I love the shape and ICS but the phone simply doesn’t pick up 4g very well, there can be test, Kellex can talk about dbm, abc, defg. Point is I live with my cousin and he has a razr I have a nexus. I have 2 bars of 3g and he has 3 bars of 4g sitting side by side, same place, this whole week (I live outside of dc). His screen also looks just as good as mine. And i still cant get my apps from my droid x to the nexus because there isn’t removable storage. So it is what it is.I’m paying for a slight upgrade of the droid charge but 150 dollars more. To be honest the nexus right now is faster than the razr, but my guess is like all things about the nexus that advantage comes from ICS not the phone itself.

    For a bit I had 4G turned off because I rarely saw more than 2 bars. I was happy with the situation but decided to run 4G for a bit just to see the difference.

    Calls were the same but I discovered a GIGANTIC different in app loading speed. OMFG! The load time is cut down to about a quarter of the time with 3G. 

    Even when 4G went down, I was still making calls and doing my thing via 3G. What’s all the bellyaching about?

  • Nkmett15

    I’m seeing some people say that they traded in their Nexus for a Razr. I sold my DROID X2 for $200 bucks and was planning on buying the Nexus. Should I get the Razr instead?

    • Eric

      Depends on what you’re looking for in your phone. I chose the Nexus because I wanted updates sooner and be able to unlock and root at will.  I struggled for the first week with ‘supposed’ signal issues and battery life. Battery life is much improved after a few charge cycles and my signal is fine. Never a call quality issue or data issues (except for the 3 times Verizon’s data went down). I love the Nexus- no regrets here.

      • Nkmett15

        I’ve heard of some random reboots while using the Nexus. Have you had any issues?

    Now that I traded in my Galaxy Nexus for a Droid Razr my reception is great! I’m getting between 63dbm and 75dbm at one spot where i was getting 110 on the Galaxy Nexus!  I must say even though I waiting so long for the Nexus I now wish I went straight for the RAZR. I’m very happy now that I have reception and the call quality is better, the speaker is better, and it feels much smoother when i have home screens loaded with live wallpapers. Yes it’s not as developer friendly or dosn’t have a hd screen but other than that it’s loads better than the Nexus.

  • took my 4G off for now. helps to keep battery in good range. only turn it on when necessary. so it’s been ok for me.

    I am in Central Florida (Orlando). When running 4G I get from 1 to 3 bars. But 3 bars tops on rare occasions. 

    My question is: Does the signal indicator mean anything? As I still get the same call quality. My email and SMS traffic runs the same with no issue. Internet is fine. Apps run fine. I have yet to have a dropped call. My sister who is on TMO in Texas still drops our calls occasionally. Mine has run absolutely fine.

    So what does this 4G issue mean in the grand scheme? I say this not to be antagonistic but nothing has really changed for me in terms of functionality; other than having a new kicka$$ cell phone.

    Verizon has a funny definition of “fixed it overnight.”  Yesterday I was stuck 3G until the afternoon, then 1x until late in the evening.  Woke up this morning with 4G, which almost immediately became 1x.  I’m still at 1x as of 11:30am EST (the 31st).

    I know it’s not my location, either. Prior to Verizon’s issues earlier this week, I’ve had reliable 4G in every room in my home, near Pittsburgh PA.

    Springfield, MA – RAZR.  Been getting consistent data drops during radio switching after phone calls since I got it, sometimes lasting more than 10-15 minutes.  Powercycling/Airplane cycling doesn’t help.  Turning on CDMA only mode does.  Had lots of problems with the outages(until I went CDMA only).  The RAZR update that supposedly fixed data drops after phone calls did not in fact fix data drops after phone calls.

    • LionStone

      I’m curious if you are able to drop it down to 1X only? On my TB, when I’m in a bad signal area where I don’t even get 3G, I drop it manually into 1X (LTE on/off app) and it remains stable so I can still use data even if it is a lot slower and saves battery.

My 4G in my house is sporadic, as I get one or two bars of 4G in my room, but only get one or two bars of 3G in my family room. I think Verizon needs to beef up the network somehow. Clearly having major network problems this month. But what you guys are experiencing, I have been experiencing since this summer when they flipped the switch here in good ol’ Erie.

    For those who haven’t done so yet make sure that you call Big Red and ask for a concession based on all of the outages.  After 3 during business hours they really have no justification for not refunding part of your data service package.  In my case I called and kindly explained I was beginning to get fed up with the ‘during-the-day-outages’ and told the rep that I rely on the service for work (which is true).  She offered up $10 per data package (2 in total on my account) so I received $20 credit for next months bill.  Worth the outage time?  Heck no – but across hundreds of thousands of customers this may make enough of a dent to warrant more scrutiny going forward.  As a network engineer I understand their position (new technology in the process of rollout) but complete outages like this should be better engineered for containment or not reliant on specific points of failure.  It’s not the Verizon we’ve grown to expect in terms of network reliability the past years on 3G.  But, just my $0.02.

    Dear Verizon CEO, here is reality for me (your Loyal Customer)…the signal (3G and 4G, voice and data) on my brand new Galaxy Nexus simply keeps disappearing even in a place like NYC (outside and Inside the bldg). I get 0 (yes Zero) bars and sometimes I see 1 bar with 4G and 2 bars with 3G, my speed is 1-4 mb download and barely 1mb upload on a sunny day! And even though I have unlimited data plan (as tech support confirmed) having no signal does not do any good for me. No 2 dollar bill for you Sir!

  • Travisgary

    Northern mn. 3g just showed up on my phone. I dont think 3g was down just down on 4g phones..

  • Anonymous

    They are bound to have a few growing pains.  The roll-out of 3g wasn’t flawless either as I remember.  That and they are expanding 4g at a much greater rate than any expansion before that I can remember.  Sure it is inconvenient, but if they start getting things stabilized in the next few months I am fine with that.  If it turns into daily outages, then that would bother me, but Verizon won’t let it get there.

    • Anonymous

      They charge enough for the service. I don’t want to hear any BS about growing pains. Fix the damn thing. 

  • Sk102704

    Anyone notice that these issues started arising not long after the big 3 of 4g phones (Razr, Rezound, GNex) came out? Sounds like verizon’s 4g network has a capacity issue.

      How bout the micro Sim cards? Wifes thunder bolt didn’t miss a beat for a change. Usually its dropping calls and only has one bar and no 3g while the razr has 4 or 5 bars

My Nexus was showing 2 bars no “3G” or “4G” symbol beside it. And when I tried to open the browser it gave me a “can’t find the address for google.com” error message.

  • Johnzenobia

    Verizon needs to fix this and fix it right. The excuse that it’s such a new service doesn’t cut it anymore. I want to know if I will get a three day credit on my data charges for the month when the service was so poor.

    Im in LA and I have a thunderbolt.
    All day I have been stuck on 1x and I got so frustrated that I pulled out the battery, sim card, then put the battery back in and booted it up. After I got the no sum warning, I pulled the battery back out popped the sim back in, booted up and now everything is working normally!!

      Yeah I’m around the same area, Montgomery County. I get drops a lot. It seems stronger and more consistent as you go closer to DC. A lot of times I just get gray bars. I’m guessing that  means just 3G, or just voice and no data. Either way I haven’t been over the moon excited about my first 4G LTE connection.

    While driving across town earlier, I did check my phone at one point only to find I had absolutely no data signal at all.

Dunno what happened. East Lansing, MI.
