    Here is Southeast TN we have had no service since around 12pm today. We cant use our cell phones but in only a sport or two, and then yoou cant move or it will drop the call. Has anyone else had any trouble today?

    Verizon told us they were updating towers and that TN had wide spread service outage. [​IMG] I know mine, DW, my moms my dads, my sisters, are all doing they same thing. [​IMG]

    I have had Verizon for over 10 years and I have FAR fewer problems than others with different carriers. I can handle 8-10 of no service for tower upgrades.......

    Here in Cali verizon is working just fine, I hope yours starts working soon. It's kinda a strange time to be doing updates?

    After they update towers you need to dial *228 on the cell. Also, just do it occasionally to keep all towers updated.

    Ive been satisfied with my service, until today. Weve had vzw, for around 10 years too. I thought it was odd that they would do upgrades in the middle of the day on a Friday. [​IMG] Ive needed my phone all day and havent been able to use it. (I turned my landline off a few months ago because we rarely used it.)

    It could have been a car accident, a shooting accident, a lightening strike etc., it is just easier to say towe update.....​

    mine has done that 3 times in the last couple of years here in GA... it seems the more rural you are the more it happens, guess we have fewer towers to catch a signal.
