    And if it's not, what are you going to do? Exactly, not a thing.

    Per Verizons twitter:

    We have determined cause of 4G LTE issue & are working with major vendors to restore connections. Details as they come.

    I've confirmed from several VZW sources this is not a hacker responsible for what's going on.

    Doesnt really matter what caused it does it? Fact remains it isnt fixed and they arent going to automatically extend a credit to the accounts of those affected. We will have to waste our time calling in and holding and probably argue because they will say it wasnt a total service outage so they arent going to issue a credit..

    It's got 4 likes - this will certainly make them shudder.

    There was no hackers behind this. This will be resolved, just like any other issue that has ever come up with Big Red. It's happened before, it will happen again I'm sure.

    It's a nationwide outage. No "those affected".

    Then every verizon wireless customer should b compensated if they are all affected. I strongly doubt they will.

    people are complaining about an outage which is out of verizons hands. We pay $30 a month for data. So far we havent been able to use it for a day. You think ima call and complain for a dollar credit. When it comes it comes. 3G is good for the moment dancedroid

    We pay $29.99 for data, it doesn't specify 3G or 4G or even a 100% data connectivity clause. I can still use data with 1X or 3G so we don't have much of a ground to stand on. The people complaining for a days worth of compensation need to get a life.
