    Looks like 3G\4G is still sleeping in Dallas as well. I get that this is new technology but you can't use the entire country as your guinea pigs. Verizon and any other 4G carrier needs to have some sort of redundancy plan, in my opinion.

    I spent some time as a supervisor at Sprint customer service back in the day (before smartphones). Once we had a total blackout of the West Coast for about 13 hours. It actually affected normal internet too because a trunk line had been cut. So once service was restored we were inundated with irate callers demanding money. Our standard offer was a $5 service credit. One guy had been cursing out my customer service rep so I took over the call: I gave him the standard apology and offered him the $5 which he said was like a slap in the face. He had business deals! OMG! He said he wanted to be compensated for all the time he was without service. After suggesting he take the $5 he decided to fight so I gave him what he wanted: I refunded him for all the time he was without service. I even rounded it up from 13 hours to a full day of refund. He ended up getting about $3 instead of the 5 when I was forced to disconnect the call due to profanity.

    He was probably better off missing those business calls, because while on the phone with me he talked away 40% of the credit that was coming to him. Oh well.

    I switched mine to 3g only until the network is back online. This is what the second time in 2 weeks that 4g devices have lost all connectivity even to 3g. My D3 is working just fine but my GNex sits there taunting me going HAHA....

    Some people are just idiots... I dont see how cussing out a CSR is going to help make your case at all...not like they control the backbone themselves.
