    Not sure how widespread this is (i live in the tidewater VA area)this but last night I lost 3g for a good few hours and now tonight I lost all service and even called a few friend with verizon from a landline and nothing...anyone else getting this?
    Maybe verizon doing some serious maintenance or LTE preparations???

    Was there a storm? We had one tower go down due to a lightning strike a couple months ago and that took down the whole network up here.

    Saw on another forum that they talked to Customer Service and they said it was statewide outage. No time frame on fix.
