    Wow! Maybe you need to search these forums...(again no disrespect)

    Keyboard issues....coming up out of the factory reset...the auto punctuation, with ? <>;: symbols.... no capitalization at the beginning of sentences. Shift key 1/2 way works / cap locks light don't work / have to hold the shift key to captilize any word instead of pressing once and letting go and typing. The fix for this is going into the keyboard settings and setting it (even though it is already) to defaults, you have reset it again!

    Phone calls drop....( I have stopped making calls because I am so tired of them dropping on me) within 1 minute of a call..more noticeable when the phone is receiving email it will drop a call...so you have to turn off the push notifications or set it for the longest time in between so you don't have to worry about being dropped.

    Battery drainage....how long have I been typing about this one topic today? Check for me please ....because I have to go plug my phone in for a charge....my battery just told me to connect my charger..... I was at 90% when I started this topic!

    More later after I charge


    Ughhhh!

Yes there is open access to Wi-Fi in the areas that I try to use Wi-Fi ...so its not that it is not accessible. GPS won't turn off and constantly searches for my location unless I turn turn off at least one setting in the locations and then when I reboot my phone it turns on all 3 again! So what I want...is when I install the OS (ROM) ....I do not want to have to tweak anything. I just want it to work.....CORRECTLY....like it used to.
    Interesting. I don't remember having those types of issues on stock JB. But I wasn't on it all that long either. Like Kenji91 said you may want to try a factory reset first. I know that has helped some people with issues after an OTA. It sucks having to re-setup your phone but it might be worth a shot. Avatar, and all the ROMS really with the exception of Eclipse, are 4.2 based. If you decide to go the ROM flashing route I would suggest starting with CM or Liquid. They would be a little more similar to stock in look and feel and should be relatively easy to get used to. Avatar is really nice, but it changes the look and feel significantly. If you are interested in Avatar you can find that ROM in the D4 dev section on XDA forums. Liquid and CM both have dev threads here on droidforums.

    Well, the battery issue has been a D4 problem since day one. It's been significantly better since I've used custom ROMs (Eclipse and Liquid), mostly due to the removal of VZW bloatware. You can also make lots of changes to make the battery last longer.

    Everything else leads me to believe you got a bum phone. Capitalizing the first letter is a default of the stock ROM I believe, and can be set in Languages and Input. I've never dropped a call because of any notifications. I would definitely go to Verizon and get a warranty replacement.

    I never felt the need to search the forums for these issues because I never came across them. I'm on them daily (well, this and XDA, but only for development) and have not seen anyone say anything bad about the JB OTA.

    I maybe lucky but I haven't had any battery life issues gps I fixed when I turned on wifi, gps, and all location settings. Then I went into maps and navigation and got it to lock my position and it's been good ever since even after reboots. The keyboard on the other hand I tried all fixes doesn't stay fixed for long but I have purchased swift key that fixes all issues with keyboard and auto correct even works with physical keyboard which is an issue with lots of 3rd party keyboards but swift key works perfectly and worth every penny. Hopefully Motorola will push out a fix soon.

    Putting this away for the weekend....put my phone on the charger and got it up to 40% in 2 hours. Have too much to do this weekend to deal with this right now.

    Thanks guys for the thoughts I do appreciate it.

    I've had none of the issues you've described, maybe sans the battery issue... but that has never been this phones strong suit.

    I get about 14 hours with moderate to heavy usage on JB Eclipse.

    But I haven't had any of your issues with stock JB; i'd consider warranty replacement.

    Okay, back to the drawing board.... and I am hoping this is what is wrong...
    Because I uninstalled it and my wi-fi / gps / 4g stopped fighting!

    The root of my problem could be the Xfinity Wi-Fi App.

    You see, I know it is not a warranty issue, not a battery issue... I knew it was software... because all my issues were happening away from my home... and not when I was at home on my wi-fi signals. I was just getting pissed because I had this issue even during the soak test... and it stopped after I did the factory reset after the soak test ended, but started again within a week ...

    With the fighting between the 3 it was causing my phone calls to drop within a minute or when I was receiving emails. The Keyboard issues and the other little things I can deal with... but my battery drainage and my wi-fi not staying on or switching between that and 4g and watching my GPS signal try to find me when it was all switching and losing signal because of that... I could not stand for... so maybe I don't have to go the route of Rooting my phone....

    Thanks Guys for giving me thoughts to ponder on!

    For the record, I rooted and have never looked back. I've even gotten a warranty replacement from Verizon for my rooted phone (because the light sensor seemed to have broken).

    I'm currently running jszweitzel's nightly of the LiquidSmooth ROM (v2.3.1), which runs Android 4.2.2, and almost everything is working well. Battery life is fantastic compared to what I've had over the past year of having this phone.
