    Verizon issues around Jack Trice Stadium last night

    Anyone else with Verizon Wireless service have issues with not being able to make calls or send text messages? I know it wasn't my phone because my wife's didn't work either..

    Didn't really care once the game started, but tried getting ahold of family and friends prior to the game to let them know where we were at and got nothing.....

    Yeah, I experienced that same thing. I persisted for most of the game but I was able to make a call afterwards.

    I noticed that during tailgating and the game I was not able to make calls. Not sure about texting but I am sure they weren't working either. Really one of the only times I have ever had problems with Verizon.

    Sprint was fine, but I've had problems when I used to have USCellular in years past.

    This is a common problem with all the cell usage in one area. I know us cellular brought in a mobile truck tower, but it's still gonna happen.

    Re: Verizon issues around Jack Trice Stadium last night

    Yeah me too which is weird because it's only been an issue during the Iowa game in the past because of having ~ 70,000 people around the stadium. This is the first time it's happened that I can recall during a normal game.

    They blocked out everyones cell phones so the coaches had a clear signal during the game.

    You have 75,000 extra people in a small area. What do you expect?

    For them to bring in mobile towers.
