To the Novatel MiFi users: Have you been able to use 3G during this 4G outage? My Samsung SCH-LC11 has been unable to provide 3G coverage during the 4G outage. Even though the device indicates a 3G connection to the network, it never receives DNS information from the Verizon server so it doesn't get an IP address. My iPhone and my 3G MiFi device (which I dropped back to during the day) both work fine in the same locations the 4G hotspot is failing. Verizon tech support told me it's because my "4G hotspot has a SIM card and SIM cards don't work when 4G is down." Odd, since I was previously able to use the LC-11 as a 3G hotspot when outside of 4G coverage.
Any of you 4G Novatel users able to check your 3G connection during this outage?
