    So I signed into myverizon to update one of my lines to a normal Droid Incredible (since it's gunna come out free for my father) look what I got:



    Error 503--Service Unavailable
    From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
    10.5.4 503 Service Unavailable

    The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If known, the length of the delay may be indicated in a Retry-After header. If no Retry-After is given, the client SHOULD handle the response as it would for a 500 response.

    Note: The existence of the 503 status code does not imply that a server must use it when becoming overloaded. Some servers may wish to simply refuse the connection.


    now I REALLY hope this isn't something thats gonna happen at 3AM!!

    I'm sure it's just maintenance to get ready for the launch.

    or a server hicup. I've experienced that on a lot of sites.

    I'm sure Verizon set up some extra servers to handle everything. If you do experience a crash. Don't panic as that will only make matters worse.

    I suppose next you will tell me that in the event of an emergency my laptop CAN be used as a personal flotation device?
