i live in the greater Pittsburgh area and have been having trouble using my cellphone. i'm wondering if it's verizon particularly sucking around this area or if my phone may in fact be on the fritz. i originally thought it was verizon, as i couldn't even call voicemail, but now it's been twice that my phone "locked up" in that none of the buttons were working so that the only way to shut off the thing was to take the battery out. i'm not a big cell phone junkie so this hasn't caused me any serious headaches yet (aside from the pizza delivery debacle when i was starving). as i don't really have the time to get it checked out this time of year (end of semester = crazy) i figure i'd just post it here and see what people thought about it.
