    I've noticed the same thing when I turn on wifi. I have 3G, switch to wifi for use in my house, then I plan to leave the house so I turn wifi off. The 3G does NOT come back. I have to reboot the phone.

    Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes...
    Mine does the EXACT same thing. Sometimes takes 2 reboots to get it going again.

    Had my Nexus a few days and so far the connectivity has been pretty darn good.

    My Nexus currently shows a -79 1 asu

    3G Droid X -63 0 asu.

    Clearly the Samsung seems to have a weaker antennae then the Moto, but so far I haven't nitcied any negative effects.

    I'm getting -100 dBm at work, which is a large metal building with lots of steel and concrete. Outside I get -96 dBm. Pretty sad if you ask me.
    Please ignore the above post.
    I am just trying to increase my post count.

    Is everyone who's experiencing reception problems ACTUALLY experiencing real problems? I'm not trying to throw salt in any wounds here, but for the most part, everyone is just throwing out signal strength figures. Maybe VZW is right and there really is no problem...it just LOOKS like there's a problem. I just drove from blacksburg VA to Alexandria VA taking a bunch of country back roads I've never traveled before. Obviously I used my GPS on my brand new nexus! I hit many dead areas on 66 after I passed Charlottesville and got into the back country. I had zero bars of anything...forget about 4g. All I saw was a gray triangle. And not ONCE did I lose GPS and no I didn't pre download the map. So has everyone actually checked to see if the really even have a problem?

    Yes!

    When I'm at work, the signal strength alternates between -120dBm 99asu and -100dBm 1asu.

    This causes my battery to drain rapidly. And my pocket gets really warm to let me know my phone is sucking the battery dry.

    If I didn't keep my phone plugged in at work, I wouldn't make it through half the workday without my phone going dead.

    That is a problem.

    Mine frequently hovers around there (like any place in my apartment), and I don't get those battery drains or terrible signal issues. You should check for a rogue app.

    Is Blacksburg covered with 4G or is it just Roanoke?

    I was surprised to find out that Blacksburg DOES have 4G despite not being listed the signal strength and data speeds are WAAAAY better on campus than even a mile off campus though...its weird. Its like VT got their own tower lol

    At home I don't get battery drains or terrible signals (not great signals, but not terrible). So unless there's a rogue app that only runs when I'm at work, I've got no reason to blame anything but signal.

    Could be something with GPS or wifi, or it could be signal strength. I've just never had issues like you describe and I'm typically closer to the -120 dBm range in my apartment. But I suppose every phone could act different. I just wouldn't necessarily rule out apps so quickly, especially when the phones heating up.
