March 14, 2012 – Verizon seems to be experiencing a rather large data outage that is affecting Alabama, Georgia, and several other states. We’ve received word that is may be as late as 11:00pm before the issue is resolved. Another story online about the outage can be found at http://wirelessandmobilenews.com/2012/03/iphone-verizon-3g-northeast-mid-atlantic-data-outage-fix.html. Some people are reporting it only affecting iPhone users, but our staff can definitely confirm that Android is also having an issue.
Update: Apparently, the issue affecting other states (like Philadelphia) was actually separate from the problems in Alabama and Georgia. It looks like everything had been restored by about 8:00pm. We have heard that the issue was a switch in Birmingham, but that is unconfirmed.
