Verizon customers are experiencing service problems with their personal phones. 

A media representative with Verizon released this statement: 

Verizon Wireless is currently experiencing an intermittent voice, text and data services interruption for customers in some markets in the south. Our engineers are aware of the issue and are working diligently to resolve it.  

Verizon Support acknowledged the problem in tweets to inquiring customers: 

 

A Verizon retailer in Green Bay acknowledged that people are experiencing some sort of problem with their phones. The retailer suggested people make calls on their WiFi until the issue is resolved. 

According to DownDetector.com , the number of people reporting problems with Verizon spiked this morning from a few dozen reports to a few thousand. 

Verizon Support on Twitter says "it is unusually busy today" for calls into customer service. They did reassure one customer that it was not due to a zombie apocalypse.
