Has anyone returned their Bionic and had the problem go away?
Kellex from DL did this and his problems went away. I'm thinking about maybe trying it... Worse case scenario it doesn't work and I need to wait for an update.
update for me! VZW fixed my non-existent 3G issue. No new phone, no factory reset. It was something on the network end apparently! Needless to say I'm stoked about it as I was ready to throw this thing back through the verizon window and wait on the Prime to get here. Now if they could take care of that pesky apps disappearing from the media area issue. or "insufficient memory available" for installs crap... 6 GB available... yeah try again -.-
and tjk thanks for the info on the prime, looks like it is an OMAP processor as well, and that's good enough for me!

I'm going to try and get another phone today. I hope they don't tell me to factory reset.....from what I see, that's not going to help.
Sent from my DROID BIONIC using DroidForums
they did some reset stuff on their side, and had me pull the battery and sim card and leave it out for about 2 minutes for everything to clear out. It took about 24 hours for everything to take hold, the tech said it may be a few hours... but sure enough to the minute, 24 hours later my 3G was back, and I haven't had data dropped since . Call up tech support... I also refused to do a factory reset after they walked through all of this other stuff, and they opened up a support ticket on the issue for me. Fair warning it took the phone awhile to boot back up after yanking battery and sim for 2 minutes.. maybe because of the changes on the VZW end? I dunno, but it was quite a few minutes before I even had a network connection after that. I don't know if the sim card pull and reset was what fixed it, or if it really was something to do with their network itself like the tech was saying it "might" be, but something they did fixed my phone *shrug*
I will note it does still take about 30 seconds to swap from 4G to 3G, but not the other way around *shrug* 4G is an instant on.

So I went to Verizon, and they put a new Simm card in my phone.
Only time will tell...However, one promising resut:
Before, when I switched to Wi-fi, 3G would go away. They didnt seem to co-exist in the notification bar. Now since the new simm card, they both are staying on in the notification bar.
Also, she warned me, that if it happens again tonight, I better bring it tommorow as the 14 day DOA policy will be gone....
keeping fingers crossed....
Also, another good sign, when making a voice call, immediately afterwards 3G comes up very fast. There was always a delay before...
