Nationwide Verizon 4G LTE Outage Happens Again (Updated: Restored)

According to the massive chunk of emails in our inbox with “Verizon LTE outage again!” it’s safe to assume that Big Red’s network dropped somewhere around 5:00AM Pacific. I apparently have 4G here in Portland, OR, but that’s not to say that the rest of you do. As always when these things happen, feel free to drop your location in the comments so we can see how things are crankin’ across the country.

We are seeing Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Vegas, Cincinnati, Raleigh and more.

Update:  According to Verizon spokesperson Tom Pica and @VZWNews, 4G LTE service has been fully restored. Are you back up?

Cheers everyone!

    Not had 4G for over two weeks on the mifi nor the Rezound.
    What is going on?

  • spickle

    my 4G was out from 1-11pm in Philly. i kept toggling CDMA and CDMA/LTE on and it would bring it back for a couple of mins.

  • Mark Slomski

    4g went out in Scranton P.A at around 7:30 am noticed I had service back around 12:30 but connection speed is alot slower then what it was before the outage. verizon said there looking into it and fixing it.

  • Hemm Droide

  • Stephen D

    I;ve had 4G since 7 this morning in Pittsburgh. It wasn’t down for me.  

  • Tutunkari

    4G was never out in central Colorado.

  • 4G was out in Greenville, SC for half of the day, but it’s back on. Nice to see that I wasn’t the only one ready to loose my mind this morning!!! 

  • Nicole

    4G is spotty still. Getting 4 down and 2 up in Modesto, CA. When I am able to get the signal.

  • Jim McClain

  • It’s down in Cleveland, OH 

  • Had 4G all day today on my Strat in Cincy.

  • igotadroid

    3g out in NJ, in Warren County. Still no 4g. Still never turned on here.

  • brandon

    No 4G in San Luis Obispo this morning 

  • Stevenav6463

    I got nothing in Nashville! Still out!

  • Buzzy42

    I’ve been having a lot of trouble with 4G on my Thunderbolt in Los Angeles for the last 12 hours or so — it seems to be going up and down quite a bit. It’s been working better for the last hour…

  • MrSteve920

    4G is working but not 3G in Newark, Delaware.

  • All good in San Francisco.

  • Yep. It was down in Baltimore, MD. It didn’t even hand off to 3G though I was able to manually force it by switching to CDMA only and rebooting – it seems those hand off problems STILL haven’t been solved (at least not with the Bionic).

  • llwang

    ThunderBolt in Urbana, IL, been stuck in 3G since the morning.

  • Miguelh209

    4G back in
    Los Angeles CA

  • Snoop90044

    4g back in Los Angeles

  • Mike

    4G up again in L.A

  • And all the Iphone users laugh at us because they have had 4g for the longest time. Didn’t even notice a 4g outage (Knoxville,TN).  Although it was extremely SLOW last night.

    • RobMorris

      iPhone has never had 4g, the people who buy them are just dumbasses and think the 4 in iPhone 4 stands for 4g

      • Obviously :), just a little humor for my boring day at work.

  • RoadsterHD1

    In OC, CA and 4 G is good now. I did the *#*#4636#*#* and allowed it to fully go into 3G EVDO and then back to GSM.CDMA and all of the sudden 4G came back. I guess almost like a reboot, but i can’t be sure, it may have been a coincidence.

  • Br_d

    LTE is down in Indy.

  • Spoken Word™

    I never lost 3G or 4G here in NY. Downtime happens! Accept it! Carry on with life!

  • Patrickd35

    Dover, DE is still up and running.

  • Heck my 3G was down here in western Minnesota for about 2 hours

  • lightlong

    Down again in Boston. 

  • It was out in NYC until about an hour ago.  Not much of a shock it’s out in the surrounding areas almost daily.  What’s worse is that when it goes done my fancy new nexus does not fail back to 3G. I simply have no connection unless I manually switch to CDMA.  It’s ridiculous.

    all good 4g in vegas

  • Cubs0515

    Seems to be back on in Chicago

  • 4G back in Central New Jersey

  • Here’s an article that I found on extremetech.com that made sense on why the 4G network keeps going down. They also confirmed my theory as to why 4G phones eat thru batteries so fast. Page 3 explains the outages & page 5 addresses the battery issue.


    • maxoct97

      That was excellent, thank you. 

  • Zgillat

    No 4G in Vegas. 3G works fine.

  • sylent101

    Oh I thought my nexus was going wonky, its back up though.

  • skltr21

    verizon’s 4g is an effing joke….. i’m lucky in socal to get like 8mbps download speeds.  and i say lucky to get that.  that’s if it’s even working.  and i have to say i do have the thunderbolt, which in my opinion is probably the worst 4g phone ever.  i’m lucky to even have data most of the time.  the radios need to be updated or something.  it’s constantly switching between 3g and 4g and i live in a full coverage area.  but when it switches you lose all data while it’s switching.  it’s incredibly annoying.

    • SD_Scott

      I live in San Diego and get 14-20 down when I’m at home and around 8-13 while at my office…

    • sounds like a bad update install. on my thunderbolt in ft lauderdale beach, i hit 37Mbps download. Verizon did say 5-12 Mbps, so theres no joke. you have 8 which is better than the others. On my galaxy Nexus on 2 bars, i get at least 10Mbps. dont’ blame it on the network. blame your specific device.

  • jdomann

    No problems here in Stillwater, OK.

  • Q

    ALL Gs down in San Diego 🙁

  • Jorge Leal

    still no 4G in Orange County, CA

  • zizzybaloobah

    We left Harrisburg, PA about 10am. No 4G at all, 3G was OK but erratic.
    Traveling down I-83, at York, PA I could only get 1x, and once we were
    south of York, I got nothing. As we approached the Baltimore beltway
    (I-695) 4G seemed to be working again.

    Every time they have a 4G outage, they say 3G isn’t affected, but it *always* seems to be affected. Why you say that, Big Red?

    • maxoct97

      Same, live in socal and lost my 4g coverage 8:48am. 3g looks like it’s working though. 

      If you have a bionic you should change the network to 3g (cdma) only for the day until this is resolved. 

  • 4g in Utah

  • James Friedman

    Holy shit….I’ve been sitting here looking for reasons as to why my Nexus couldn’t catch a LTE signal for the past half hour. Even went as far as wiping the AOKP B25 ROM and reinstalling and it was just an outage. I just installed it last night but when I got to work this morning couldn’t connect. Thanks for the info Droid Life, at least I know I wasn’t crazy o_O

  • Afaaron25

    4G still out here in temecula, CA

  • fauxshizzl

    I live less than a mile from my nearest tower and I get 4G about %80 of the time. The rest it either drops completely or switches to 3G. Not sure if it is the Bionic (as my brother has the same phone and same issues at the same time I do consistently) or Verizons sub par service. Amazing I average 800Mb down and 450Mb up on 3G, and roughly 32Mb down and 12-15Mb up on 4G. So when it goes, I notice to say the least.

  • Joe Fischer

    Erie, PA. I don’t think I’ve lost 4G at all today

  • cleffy

    I had outage since 2am, went to sleep woke up at 8:30am and it was still downed. Searched all the web for outage and didn’t see anything so I thought it was my Droid Bionic so I was gonna call Verizon but I decided to wait a little longer and then my 4G comes back up 1 hr ago.

  • MattCrouse0509

    I have 4G in Charlotte, NC this morning.  That said all of last night I showed having 4 bars of 4g but had a download speed all night of only 100-200kbs.

  • I am located in Northern Indiana, and I also noticed a drop in coverage this morning. In addition to the 4G outage, it appeared that my 3G had dropped as well. However, both 3G and 4G data service seems to be up and running again as of 10am.

  • David Davis

    Yep, mine lost 4G about 5:30 CST here in Huntsville, Alabama. When I called in – they had me check my phone, because there wasn’t an outage – I am a Network Manager for NASA, it wasn’t my phone. When you have a smart phone that is not able to utilize any of its arsenal of tools, it is just a phone.

  • MikeCiggy

    Last night in central jersey i was receiving 4g where I never have before. Seems like they were testing. They probably crash there own network trying to launch new 4g markets. It’s not that big of a deal you can usually still use 3g when 4g is down and if not texts and calls still work. Keeping you connected.

    You guys need to realize they are implementing new services and with that takes time and there are errors.  They are trying to cover the entire country in 4g before years end meaning there working over time to get there goal done. Some down time while they work is expected. At least if you have knowledge in the tech field. The unknown can always happen.

    I’m not looking for a fight here, but when I had ATT years back, I couldn’t keep service when driving on I-84. Verizon was and still is a vast improvement over that even with the problems they has been having.

      I forgot to add that a reboot fixed my problem with having no 3g.

    Oh good, I came off wifi this morning when I left and noticed that I couldn’t get either of my radios to connect, neither the LTE nor the CDMA. I’ve finally gotten my CDMA to come up after numerous reboots and switching back and forth, but LTE is still down. And now that I tested it and tried to switch back it won’t connect to CDMA again 🙁

  • Tony

    I have no g’s in Cleveland

    • TC Infantino

      Damn, you were G-less?  Me too actually, but I did have an X, so I wonder if Verizon is trying to trade Gs for Xs.

  • Joey Miranda

  • faganm24

    St. Louis is in and out between 3 and 4 g for the last 30 min. Loaded the article in 3g, posting the comment with 4g

  • Had 4G back for a minute so I manually switched my GNex to 3G.  So far I’ve managed to keep 3G connected for about 10 minutes. I guess the trick is to switch while 4G is connected?

  • Dhuff44

    No 3g, 4g or anything in Cincinnati, Droid Razr

    • guest

      i’ve got 3g with my razr.

    • Love this.  Poor B-lo is so spotty I get full 4G at work then just 3G a half mile down the road

      • Adartilth

        I usually get 3G / 1 bar of 4G when I’m at school… Today is a good day, =] unless Verizon somehow secretly pushed the radio “fix” …… hmm….. 

        • I go to UB and usually get 3-4 bars of 4G on south campus but some buildings drop to low 3G when I’m 10 feet inside

    • Yes!  For once, we win!

      • Daryl Johnston

        Sorry, Shawn, but under no circumstance does Buffalo win. Just sayin’…

        Glad your 4G is up, though…

  • Willeminx

  • celliott113

    So much for “Most Reliable Network”…I’d say class-action lawsuit on the basis of false advertisement and charging for a network with much less than 99.99% uptime. Thank God Verizon isn’t in the datacenter business. They might be worse than Office 365 or BPOS from Microsoft as far as uptime is concerned…Stupid Big Red! >_<

    • The thing is, you won’t leave them. You want to know why? Their 4G coverage is larger than most competitors 3G coverage. You can get your pitchfork out if you want, but you will be cutting them a check this month, and you will continue to do so. Why? Because they are better than their counterparts. 

      • celliott113

        I’ve already left them this morning and went to AT&T since my contract was up. Finished with their downtime. 😀 Sorry to disappoint…

        • Michael_NM

          Cool, now you can enjoy a crappy network 24/7. 😛

          • celliott113

            I’ll take a crappy network over a down network anyday.

          •  We’ll see how you feel in about 30 days.

          • Mcx3rbm

            No kidding, i thought the grass was greener going to AT&T before……BOY WAS I WRONG. Back with Big Red!!

          • Jason Frasier

            I left Verizon back in November for AT&T and have no regrets.

          • jathak

            Their network isn’t down. Just 4G. 3G is working fine.

          • LiterofCola

            I lol’d

          • Abundis5555

            Or better yet, on an.droid life lol

        • Calumnium

          haha good luck with that bro, have fun with their 4g coverage…. all 28 markets of it

        • Daryl Johnston

          Hope you have a 30-day opt out clause in that contract! I also hope you’ll be as vocal with your displeasure with at&t as you are about our smoking fast (occasionally unreliable) 4G network. With shivering hearts we await your return…

        • MotoRulz


        • Towelie420

          wow you really showed them. Who can live without 4g for a couple of hours Max? (the most I’ve ever seen 4g outages last is like maybe 2 hours). And whenever they happen I am usually at home with my wifi anyway. Their network is by far the fastest and makes any competitor look like a slug. What a goofy thing to do.
          You mad bro?

    • they are in the data center business!!! http://www.verizonbusiness.com/Products/it/data-center/

  • Rufastenuf4me

    Phx, Az is out.

  • Tempe, AZ is down for the count. Had to toggle off 4G on my GNex to even get 3G again!

    • Does that actually work?  Seems like if there is no data at all, switching to 3G doesn’t do anything.  

      • RadicalPie

        Yes it should work. not a 3g outage just 4g

    • Yeah here in phx my wifes 3G works just fine on iphone 4 but my bionic even after toggling 3G doesn’t work

  • MJL

    Chicago is fine.

  • Still going strong in Phoenix, we’ll see how long this lasts.

  • Kinfolk248

    millions and millions and millions and it cant stay up smh… i wonder if vzw manually shuts the system down b/c even with a shortage of only a few hours thats a ton of data that vzw doesnt have to bother with lol. 

    and if the data network goes down for a day then i should have a deductible taken off my bill b/c i pay for a month not 26 or 27 days out of the month!!!!!!!!!!! 

    • Ray

      And every single time the network goes down i call and get a credit you should do the same it works like a charm!

    • Travisjshepherd

      I found out your billing really is a 28 day cycle. 4 weeks of 7 not a full calendar month, sorry.

      Hey – is Graham Central Station still open?  I used to go there allll the time, 03-06.  I lived in Alamo, so that was like the China Club to us.

  • Gmontano74

    No service in Chicago …..won’t even pick up 3G….basically phone is a paper weight right now

    •  I’ve got full 4g bars in the loop.  Are you in an outlying area?

  • Guest

    DC. I really needed it this morning too…

  • Flying_Hellfish

    Chicago is down as well

  • I’m in an “extended coverage area” in CT, so I can’t rely on 4G anyway

  • John456

    Sprint 4G working fine here.

    • By Sprint 4g do you mean Verizon speed 3g? WiMAX is a joke.

      • John456

        Yes, my consistent 9mbps 3G data connection, sorry.

        • That’s it, 9mbps? That’s cute.

          • Sqube

            That’s all well and good, but please stop acting like Verizon’s 3G is worth a damn. In D.C. you’re lucky to get 1mbps down/800kbps up.

            WiMAX won’t win a lot of awards (as demonstrated by the fact that Sprint themselves are dumping it), but it’s faster than VZW 3G any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

          • Mmoreimi

            Yesterday with the Rezound, I used the speedtest.net app indoors.
            34 down and 12 up.

          • Smeckle

            I am lucky to get above 8Mbps down when I’m on LTE on my GNex and I’m in OC, where I would expect the network coverage to be really good. And this is consistent; my average is probably in the 7s. I have no idea what the deal is and how people are getting in the 20s and 30s for their down speed.

          • Skltr21

            same here

          • Smeckle


          • TC Infantino

            It could very well be that there are many more people on the network where you are at.  Alot of people sharing the limited bandwidth will reduce your speeds.  I could be wrong though, I was wrong once…it was a Wednesday.

          • mustbepbs

            I have to agree with John456. Having a reliable, modest connection speed (yes, 9 Mbps is decent) is better than having an arrogant carrier claiming to have the most reliable network that crashes A LOT. Sorry.

          • John456

            Yes Grizzly, I can download a song in 30 seconds where you download in 15 seconds… f my life.

        • Benjamin Mackie

           32mb/s 4g=win

    • Mmoreimi

      Sprint 4 what?

    •  I must have missed the part of the article where Sprint “4G” was ever being reported down.

    • Adartilth

      Those are just…. no… just stop

  • Still out here in Detroit.

  • going in and out in Chicago, IL

  • no 4G in rockford, IL . . spotty at best. 

  • No 4G here in DC… will keep you posted.

  • huskerhog

    Memphis, I do have 3G but no 4G.

    • huskerhog

      4G back up a couple of hours ago

  • I have only intermittent service in Lansing, MI. I don’t have 3G or 4G most of the time, but I am getting it occasionally. 

    • I lost my 4G connection last night in Dallas, TX around 8:30PM local time. I have had a consistent 3G connection since then, with 4G sprouting up occasionally. I imagine they are working on it based on my 4G flickering from time to time.
