Hey, we've been getting a ton of reports that Verizon's network has been down for several hours in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, and California, possibly as a side effect of merging in the Alltell network. We're hearing a six-hour ETA on things being restored, but we're wondering if anyone else is being affected -- hit us up in comments!
