    Have you tried turning off all connections, since then, and then turning back on? Sometimes this will re-sync you w/tower. There have been occasions where I have been down for 24hrs. due to VZW equip. damage. Rest assured, VZW will have it back soon, they always do.

    I guess it's possible the storm knocked out a tower near you and that could cause a problem. Any other opinions?

    it might be both. It could be a malfunction in the cell towers. Call customer care and they should be able to tell you of malfunctioning towers in your area. If it's not towers maybe it was just a data outage in your area?

    Here's a thread you can check regularly for data outages:

    Didn't see anything specific to the Chicago area.

    I grew up in Elmhurst and my Mom still lives there. Thought I heard that a tornado touched down there.
