Like everyone else, I lost my network connection. No 3G, 4G, or anything. Tried toggling wifi and airplane mode with no success. I just finished going through the factory reset and that seemed to do the trick. Out of curiosity, for the folks that were experiencing this issue, was your phone rooted like mine was?
Droid Bionic - Running Eclipse ICS
Things to remember:
- A done bun can't be undone.
- Oh yes, we all float - and when you're down here with us, you'll float too!
Now you know and knowing is half the battle
My phone is permanently stuck on 3G. Verizon has done battery removal, soft reset, hard reset and replaced the SIM card. They say it needs to be replaced. Got it at Costco and they are completely out of them! Going to return it. FYI Costco does not sell phones - it is thru an affiliate company Wireless Advocates, LLC with TERRIBLE customer service.
I started noticing this problem shortly after I had installed the "LTE Switch" app. After using it for a few days I uninstalled it and am not having the issue any more. Not sure why that would affect my phone - from what I understand all the app is is a shortcut to the settings area - but uninstalling it seemed to solve my issue...
Still having the issue. Happened today when I was out driving locally. Just dropped the data connection for no reason. Tried airplane mode, turning on/off data, eventually when I got back home I turned on WiFi and the 4G came back.
I also had the LTE switch installed and removed it. If anyone has any suggestions on a fix, would love to hear it. Loving the phone but this is a major source of frustration right now.
I'm having this issue, it seems to happen when I use wifi at home.. I have no data BUT I can make phone calls and send texts... even with wifi off... it shows bars but no 3g.. been trying to fix it all morning, had this problem yesterday and thought it was something else. glad to know I'm not the only one... I don't think my wife has had this issue yet, going to ask her later if she's had it happen.
if this keeps up I will be moving to the D3 and screw the 4g which I only have at work anyways.
Well I had my Bionic for 2 days with the same problem. Good thing I bought it at Best Buy.. I went in and told them the problem. He grabbed a new one for me off the shelf and a new sim card, no questions asked. He said he knows about the problem. This one has been working with no data problems from 3g to 4g. Best Buy is awesome. If it was Verizon, it would be like pulling teeth.
