Still trying to get more info. But BGR posted this up recently.
"One of our Verizon Wireless sources has just forwarded us an internal email detailing some data issues in the Midwest. According to the email, the issue affects only data, not voice, and is currently happening in over 3 states. Additionally, it looks like there is an issue with RIMs Switch that is playing with the emotions of all carriers nationwide, not just Verizon. How you looking out there BGR friends? Phones working ok?"
I'm on ATT in MO and have been having data issues all day. Really strange issues. I was unable to connect to the internet thru ATT or Wifi. However, I had no problems with Twitter. I am now able to connect (extremely slow) using the internet browser and firefox. The Blackberry browser is inoperative. BBM, text, voice, email are not affected.
I'm on Verizon in Nebraska; no issues with any data if initiated from my device - I can browse, send email, Twitter/FB are pushing fine. However, I'm not getting email in the evenings past two days and messengers are hit or miss. Sometimes I get messages and no one sees the reply, or I'll send a message and the reply never comes.
my berries having trouble in ohio started tonight ...bb internet down but i can use opera and i have no emails coming through and some stuff works but no twitter or facebook ...wierd. Also i think i can make a phone call havent needed too but not sure its late /early here . I have a 3g symbol but no BB symbol on my theme and no gps..not sure whats up
I just spoke to someone at Verizon and they said they were only notified by BB about 45 minutes ago about an outage. No voice is affected but data is. I noticed mine about an hour ago. I am located in Kansas City. Hopefully Blackberry figures out what the heck is going on and gets it straight!
I think they are connected. I now have no data and I'm completely on wifi now. Best thing they did on storm2 was add wifi. Lol still don't understand why the first didn't have it jeeze especially when BIS can go down like this.

At 5 AM this morning, east coast, neither the BlackBerry browser nor BerryWeather could connect. The browser actually said "Insufficient Network Coverage to process your request". The signal meter on the home page was showing "1xev" and three bars. After a QuickPull, the data connection was restored.
