Verizon network outage during iPhone 4 unveil

While Steve Jobs was delivering his keynote during WWDC 2010, Verizon Wireless suffered a network outage during the iPhone 4 unveil – this could not have come at a worse time. Maybe it was all those on The Big Red hoping to learn that they too were getting the new 2010 iPhone.

Firstly we would like to inform you Verizon customers that you have a little while to wait yet, as Jobs did not mention anything about the new iPhone 4 being made available to you. We wonder if the preferred U.S. carrier will ever see Apple’s smartphone?

Going back to this outage problem, it is only affecting those in three areas, Pueblo, Grand Junction and Wyoming. 11 News has been in contact with a Verizon spokesman, who said that engineers were working on the problem and hopes to fix things soon.

It is uncertain if the issue is resolved, please let us know if you are experiencing any problems.

    Is there still an outage today, June 8th? I'm asking because my sbcglobal/yahoo mail is coming through, but my mail is not. Just in case, I'm going to give you a 3rd e-mail address…

    I'm in Grand Rapids (Kentwood), MI.

  • Homer

    Intermittent service (at best) in Grand Junction, Delta, Cedaredge at this time

  • Pam

    7:20 p.m. now and still no service in Grand Junction or Delta, so they obviously missed their 5:00 p.m. repair deadline. No info on the Verizon website all day. I had to search local news online to find out what little info I could.

I can make calls but they drop within minutes of the call. I am really starting to get pi$sed of! They need to get this fixed soon! Or there is going to be He|| to pay. And I am also mad because how can they still not know if we are getting the iphone or not! GOSH! Verizon I’m not to sure how many fans you have right now! Get your $hit together and fix the service!

  • Nancy

    No service in Durango either….as of 5:16 and has been out most of the day.

  • jerry greene

    Verizon service in the Telluride-Ridgway area, at least, is barely operating. I saw a news report from Torrington, CT, as well describing problems especially in the rocky Mountainn States. I hope they give us some credit for the (so far) two days with useless service.

  • cjc

    no service in Cheyenne, WY

  • james

    wtf come on verizion

  • Hello,

    We are visiting family in Laramie Wyoming and nome of our 3 phones can make calls or send emails. 5pm Mountain time June 7th

  • eah

    i haven't had service in Cheyenne since about 1.. and still don't. I will get texts about once an hour but you can not reply to them

  • James

    It seems I can get thru if I repeatly try calling a number. It will connect 1 out of 5 or 6 tries. Text messages seem to have worked all day but right now 4:40 mtn time, does not seem to be working. I like Verizon but I'm wondering why nothing is posted on the website nor any coverage on this outage… It has been all day long. In this day and age it seem like Verizon would have reasons why coverage is CRAP in CO today… C'mon!, it's pathetic. Why no reason for us, Verizon ?

  • MTN

    Not service in Rock Springs, wy…I need to make a call to the IRS with questions!! Not Happy!!!

  • ErinK

    It has been mostly out most of the day in Cheyenne. The service rep I talked to at 2:30 p.m. didn't have an estimate on when it would be back.
