Verizon data network suffers US-wide outage

Run Windows on Mac OS X with no reboot!“Verizon cellphone customers on Wednesday reported a seemingly US-wide data outage,” Electronista reports.

“The issue affects both conventional data for all devices as well as messaging services like BlackBerry e-mail and MMS,” Electronista reports. “Service problems don’t appear to be region-specific and have been intermittent, with some already being back to normal while others have lost service a second time or have only gotten back certain features.”

Electronista reports, “Verizon hasn’t provided a public response, but those who have contacted the carrier were told there was no estimated time for when data would return to normal.”

It was a network error, not the result of their fledgling 3G pipeline collapsing under the (over-promised) weight of data congestion. And since voice and data are separate with CDMA EV-DO, Verizon customers maintained their stellar voice coverage throughout the short ordeal.
