Verizon Wireless service disrupted in Ann Arbor area for more than three hours
An unknown problem caused Verizon Wireless customers to be out of service for more than three hours on Friday afternoon. Verizon spokeswoman Michelle Gilbert said two sites being out of service in the area caused the problems.
Users were unable to send text messages or place phone calls, but some reported an ability to receive text messages at some points during the outage. It's unclear how many users were unable to use their phones during the outage. Verizon reported a total of 94.2 million customers nationwide in July, according to Information Week.
After being alerted of the problem, crews replaced the radios in the two sites and service was restored at approximately 2:30 p.m. Gilbert said no further disruptions are expected.
