    I had the same problem. The tech told me that my phone had set itself to use a sprint tower for roaming or some crap like that. Open up Phone and enter ##778 and call it. Select edit mode and the password is 000000. Go under Home SID/Home NID and click Home SID/NID #1. Change the first number to 4002. Then hit menu and commit modifications. It fixed the problem for me, but I don't know if the number is different for different locations.

    Call Verizon and see what is going on. After all, you are paying them to deliver working service. You might just need a different number than the one I was given.

    This happened to me in Vegas a while back. They said something was up with the network.
    Told me to pull the battery and do a soft reset. I did that and everything was back to normal. I wonder if they are doing something to their network... some kind of upgrade or something.
