    According to posts on the VM Facebook page...from customers...they are being told by VM escalation that the data network is down nationwide...with a fix expected in a few hours. The major outage began mid-day on Wednesday. Yummy.

    Note: As of 1:30AM EST on Thursday, 3/10/11, service is back up...here at least, and per other reports, elsewhere. I ran an SMS test and that was received and sent okay as well.

    Just got off the phone with vm. The guy told me they are upgrading the whole system and "are working as fast as they can" to get it up and runing again. Then he said I should wait until the morning and check my phone then. Let's just hope...
    Btw I am also in NJ. Maybe it's a regional thing. Who knows...

    Thanks for the post since I dont use FB.

    I have not had 3G since 5pm (California). Been searching online and tried to 'activate' the phone again, restart, etc. to no avail.

    Phone still works fine for me, outgoing and incoming.

    As long as these types of outages are not common, Im OK w/ it. Considering the price and all.

    Anyone know how I can "test" if its working. I had to return one phone (because the wiring was switched and it was acting tarded) now it's hard to know if this phone is being tarded, or it it's the network.

    Make sure the phone is switched over to 3G with Mobile Data Enabled, and try it.

    Mine just came back up here as well.

    Upgrading? Well if that is true I hope it means that all the other problems most of us have been having with the 3G before this outage will be fixed once and for all

    I would love to know if this problem/upgrade in any way is tied to a drastic increase in subscribers.
    Anyone heard something to the fact?
