My data service has been out at least since I woke up at 4:30 this morning. It is still out. I waited on hold with VZW customer service just for them to tell me that their data network is out nationwide and that the have no ETA to fix it, but it should be up in "less than 24 hours". As nice as VZW's website is, it'd be even nicer if they had a network status page. Then again, this is a pretty rare event.
No data service... oh, the humanity! I'm fortunate that my office building has a guest WiFi network that my phon ecan connect to, but everything except for web browsing is blocked. No Gtalk, no Pandora. :-P
Greater Philadelphia area - I didn't notice any VZW data issues from about 8:30-9:30 this morning. Emails and Google Voice messages came through fine, though I'd been on wifi before 8:30 and back on wifi now since about 9:30. But no trouble during the hour window where I wasn't on wifi.
The network outage, which was resolved by 8:15 a.m. ET, affected customers of "east of the Mississippi," according to spokesman James Gerace. He cited "bad switch software" which resulted in a deterioration of service and lower wireless speeds.
Not everyone in the area was affected, Gerace said. Data access in New York, for instance, continued to work Wednesday.
