    Are you in an area that could be experiencing heavy usage on the tower your currently bouncing off of?

    Have you tried power cycling your phone?

    I Have tried restarting the phone, and it seems to be the entire city not just a select couple of towers

    Seems to be a network issue then. Call and get a ticket going on it with vzw, do you have speed test? It does 3g, see what your speeds are, and tell the cs rep

    If I call them will the fact that I'm rooted cause problems?

    I really don't think so. If I'm wrong then someone correct me. Lots of people have rooted phones and get them warrantied, so I don't think they can tell. Unless they see it firsthand
