I'm really getting frustrated at this. I've had my Bionic since launch and it's been a great device, but lately it's developed this quirk where it just likes to drop the data connection for no reason. No, this isn't because I'm resuming from a battery saver or anything; it happens while I'm using the phone actively just as often as not.
These screenshots were all taken today during periods of interruption. It's worth noting that:
A) I live in a 4G LTE area (Phoenix metro), but for some reason LTE cuts in and out at my house though there is always 3G, BUT
B) These were during times of use in one nonmobile position (which varied throughout the house), and
C) there was still signal, and
D) the Bionic, despite having signal, just decided to drop data
This has been worst today but has happened before. Any suggestions? I may have to stop by the VZW store anyway tomorrow (my Bionic also picked up an annoying buzzing during phone calls) but I'd like to see if anyone else has thoughts.
I'm fairly upset about this. I waited a long time for the Bionic and sunk a good chunk of change into it on launch day. I have treated it very carefully: it has never been dropped or wet, for instance. I'd hate for this to just be something I have to deal with for the next two years.
Also, I've tried rebooting the phone, installing a fresh battery, turning airplane mode on and off, etc. Nothing has fixed the problem.
Thanks for your help, folks.
