On IRC right now and it appears that folks all over the USA have recently lost data service.
confirmed the entire nation is down on vzw all data all 50 states lovely
Just got off phone with Verizon, nationwide data network is down (outage) and will be repaired after the 8AM "full service support" arrives to diagnose. At this point there is no known cause. Press release to be held after 8AM conference calls.
ATT is still up and running!
Steve Jobs wetdream came true
Approximate time of Verizon Wireless data service outage began about 0130-0200 Eastern time on December 8, 2010.
Just came back up.
I remember about a year and a half my area lost data, cell, basically everything and that was on at&t

I'm glad I was asleep during the outage....
I think it raised such a stink even though it was only unavailable for browsing because that's mostly what we do. A lot of developers have gotten really brazen about repackaging a targeted web interface and calling it an app. (I know that it technically is an app but if you're really just displaying the web page without the browser like that nonsense that Facebook was trying to pass off a year ago, I just don't see it as an app. It's just a window to me.)
