    Still had poor reception after getting the SIM card replaced. Just swapped out the board with the antenna on it, won't know until my commute if it will help.

If it still isnt fixed after the sim card i will look into making the swap to rule out one more possibility.
    This has happened to me as well. I'm fairly certain it's just a bad radio, because I noticed my signal drastically decline, with constant falling back to 3g all day... right about the time I got my replacement phone from Asurion. Now, my natural inclination would be to blame Asurion for sending me some refurbished POS like they usually do. However, this was a brand new Droid 4 in it's own sealed box. (Actually, they did originally send me a refurb, which had a busted power button, so I called them that night, sent it back to them the next day, and then after that, I recieved my brand new Droid 4...)

    ...with a brand new ****ty radio. So, with that in mind, I think swapping out the phone will be your best bet. Keep us updated if you do get a new phone, and what the outcome is. Because if it does make a big difference, I may call Asurion and tell them to send me another one as well. I'm sure it'll be another refurb, but finally being able to keep a steady signal again is well worth the trade off.

    Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I've tried the swapping of the sim with mine as well, didn't help me at all either.
