    Has anyone else noticed that Verizon's service seems to be getting worse? Lately I've been having 3-4 bars 3G, but I've been getting the message that the network is unavailable and to try again later. Other times I will have full 3G, then it cuts in and out a few times and goes back to 1-2 bars 1x, and it keeps switching between 3G and 1x so I can never load a webpage without hitting refresh a few times.

    This is my third Droid 1, I've always had some issues but they seem to be occurring more often these days.

    I've done it a couple times a week or so ago, but once more couldn't hurt.

    So from what I'm seeing from others this doesn't seem to be a nationwide issue, just my area for now, awesome :(

    Although there was a thread not that long ago about Verizon's 3G network going down across the country.

    I think they are starting to get to big for their shoes, time for some network upgrades. I have also noticed a few places that just seem worse than in the past as well.

    It could be something as simple as a bad cell, group of cells or MSC. Even a software update gone blooey could be the cause. If you are in a location that has had some bad weather lately, it could even be a freeze / thaw problem.
    If you go say 10 miles from where you have the problem, does your service improve?

    It doesn't help that I live and work in the same area, so you're right, it could be one bad cell/tower. Although I've noticed it as well in another areas, it's just not as bad.

    It's been happening quite regularly still, here is a screenshot for those who aren't sure what I'm referring to:

    I've been having the same issue, and I basically live out in the country. I know it's not overloaded. It'll cut in and out constantly, and it's quite annoying.
