Default Lost all cell service.

Please Login to Remove!

My Verizon Curve dropped a call and now, an hour later, I still have no service.
I'm using the Alt+NMLL trick to see the db's and it is reading -256.
I've pulled the battery a few times and nothing has changed.

I'm in a place that definatly has cell service.


Other than this, my BB has been a champ.


Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin, one, have you called your carrier to see if there is a tower issue in your area, OR is there someone else near you with VZW service whom you could politely ask if they have coverage? First things first...

I traveled ~40miles through multiple cell areas and there is no one I can call in my area.
We have had severe wind in my area (northern PA)

I'm going to call Verizon from a landline and see if anything is wrong on their end.

There's a clue.

Good luck and stay safe. Those storms have been deadly.

Verizon said there have been a lot of outages in the area.

My paranoia had me convinced that it's my phone that died.
Thanks for talking me through these trying times. Ha ha ha
