    Didn't Verizon say something last year, or earlier this year, about having all 3G-only phones phased out by 2013, or something along those lines?

    Their 3G network is so rock solid... their 4G network is not. I know that's up to two years away, and obviously LTE is still in its infancy, but still... that thought worries me a bit.

    FWIW, the 4gLTE network should eventually be as reliable as the 3g. They found a way to quickly upgrade every 3g tower to 4gLTE, according to a CS rep I spoke to. Now it's just getting all the towers/phones to play nice together.

    I'm on my 3rd hardware unit. All three drop data. Could it possibly be a problem with the SIM? I'm not even using LTE (battery suck); CMDA. It appears to happen when I get to a low signal, then the bars go white with no 3g or 1x symbol, and won't come back until I reboot. This totally blows. Can I go back to Verizon and give up this phone for good, or am I stuck with this lemon for two years?

    I don't think it's with the SIM.

    I am on my second Bionic and my wife has one as well and all three have the issue. I believe if this was SIM related that there wouldn't be so many issues with so many SIMS. I honestly feel it is a problem with this phone on this network. I think that Verizon and Motorola are trying to fix the problem without acknowledging it. I think that are hoping a software update fixes the problem. If it doesn't get resolved by the next OTA update then Verizon is going to have a lot of angry customers. This is Motorola's first 4G LTE device and it is definitely filled with bugs. I believe Motorola should recall the phone and offer a working model. If the OTA update fails to fix the problem then Verizon will have to decide if they are going to offer a replacement and/or a release from the 2 year contract. Many people are banking on the supposed November OTA and I am as well. Don't hold your breath waiting for Verizon to do the right thing. We may be stuck with a 2 year deal on a phone that doesn't work right. I know I will be returning mine if the OTA doesn't fix it and I suggest that everyone with the issue do the same until they get one that works.

    Guys, I'm having the same issue. My data connection drops constantly, I don't even get 3G sometimes. My fix was turning airplane mode on then off, or power cycling if the airplane mode trick doesn't work. I called Verizon today and the rep told me they are aware of the issue and they are pushing out an update the beginning of Nov. that will address this issue.

    I was on the phone with VZ all morning bouncing back and forth from from rep to rep (even one from Moto). I found out that they wont replace the Bionic with something different and the software upgrade/fix will be coming sometime early Nov. After all was said and done, I got one $50 credit for the October and another $50 for next month's problems. If the fix isn't here by Nov, I'll try like Hell to get another $50 credit!
