    It came to my attention that Verizon Blackberry data/internet services are down effective as of today (Sunday, March 22, 2009 at approximately 3:30pm EST). I just spoke with a Verizon customer service rep and was told that there is an outage across the US. They do not know when the data/internet services will be restored. However, you may still use text messaging.

    Are anyone of you Verizon customers currently experiencing the outage at the moment?


    UPDATE: I just got off the phone from talking with a Verizon customer service rep (again) and the good news is that the VZW data is slowly being restored. The some of you still will be experiencing some data connection difficulties throughout the afternoon/evening and is expected to be fully restored later on tonight.

    LOL! The same here! After I installed Hybrid V2, I no longer had the access to data and was just about to blame the V2 OS. Until my roommate told me that he had no data connection and that was when I called Verizon. Ahh... this really sucks!

    That's kinda odd. Maybe in some parts of the US. But the rep told me that the outage is occurring throughout the entire country. Hmmm...

    Aha, I hadn't even noticed! Sure enough, can only get 1xev. I'm in Virginia, near DC. No wonder AIM didn't work.

    Mine is still out. From what I read in the other thread... I did the following:

    1) Turned off the network connection
    2) Did a battery pull
    3) Turned the network connection back on

    It actually went from 1xev to 1XEV... BUT...

    I'm still unable to send or receive messages via email and BBM.
