Did you look at your Verizon Droid minutes ago and wonder why you hadn't gotten any emails within the last few minutes? I did. I just marked it up as the start of a good day, but apparently I was exactly wrong. Verizon's data network is down and my Gmail inbox is full. Damn.
There's no ETA as of yet and New York seems to be fine. Your best bet is just to hang tight and let the VZW folks do their jobs. They want the network back just as much as you do.
