Ok so the town where i work at has never had a verzon tower. Basically if I wanted to use any kind of data feature on my phone I was stuck with 1x unless there is wifi available. Many of the places I go to have free wifi so it wasn't a huge deal.
I mainly use my phone for email and texting (i rarely make calls from work)
Verizon finally got around to installing a 4g tower and now my texting is fubar.
at first i was getting 3g in my office and everything was working like a champ. For the last few days I don't have the 3g icon on my phone and the signal i get is horrible, so i am unable to receive or send texts.
Strangely enough calls are working fine. If I get a phone call i end up getting a bunch of texts immediately after i answer the phone. (its like immediately after i receive a call the texting connection magically works)
i tried calling *228 option 2 to reset my towers but it tried to connect me to US Cellular I did reset my towers last night from home but it didn't seem to make any difference today...
I am wondering if they are still working on this new tower or if there is a problem with my phone. All I know is that my phone was working fine - verzion turns on tower, i get 3g (in my office) wooot all is well
now a few days later and I no longer get 3g and texting is fubar.
I have an (evil) theory..... my contract ended a couple of months ago and somehow verizon is shitting all over my phone to get me to buy a new phone and a new contract....
I guess i will have to call support (shudder) and see what the problem is
