For all the Virgin Mobile customers out there, we hope to bring you an important service announcement regarding your cell phone. Virgin Mobile is currently experiencing a nationwide data and texting outage, as confirmed by many users and Virgin Mobile's official Twitter feed. A representative for the company posted "We're currently experiencing a national data & text messaging outage. Our engineers are working to resolve it. Thank you for your patience," on the Twitter feed around 4 p.m. Pacific time.

Curiously enough, Sprint, who owns the company, and its users have reported no issues on the Sprint Network. Virgin Mobile officials have been oddly silent on the cause of the issue. It could possibly be in relation to the upcoming data throttling changes that go into effect in 3 days. Do you have Virgin Mobile? Are you experiencing the outage? Let us know regarding that and your thoughts regarding the changes to unlimited data.
