    He's lying. Well maybe for 4g. But for 3g why is my bionic still out and the iphone 4 still going good right next to me? I think there's more to it than what they are saying. I'm not making anything up but from what I gather from today's posts is that our bionic has progressively gotten worse in keeping connected to data while other phones are doing fine. And Verizon's excuse is that their network went down. When in fact it didn't or isn't. They shouldn't lie to us. Just hurry up with the ota fix!!!!

    I have the same problem. Also, it seems that when I am using mobile hotspot, I have to keep my screen on in order to not have loss of data. Is there an option that turns off/on 3G/LTE to save battery life? I would prefer to keep my screen off while I'm just using my Bionic to wirelessly tether.

    I had been traveling this weekend in NC, TN and VA and during that time I lost data connection with both 3G and 4G. It still showed bars but no connection and no 3G or 4G showing. I called Verizon and they tried to reset, etc. but did not know what was happening. Are you folks saying that this is widespread? What is to be done? Take it to Verizon?

    Thanks

    Connection Problems/try this

    Was having the same problem and after a call to Verizon Tech Help I think it's fixed. If your in a 3G only area make this setting change. Settings/Wireless&networks/Mobile networks/network mode/CDMA only. When you go to a 4G area change back to CDMA/LTE. After doing this I have had no further problems. According to the tech this eliminates the phone always searching for a 4G connection.....Don

    I wish it were as easy as setting it to CDMA only. Sometimes it works for a bit, but (for me) it will ALWAYS lose data eventually, no matter what setting I'm on.

    Verizon is aware of the issue and a fix is due to be in the next update in early Nov.
    Power cycle is the only option.

    Same problem

    I understand there is a patch in the works but this is really disappointing.

    I don't live in a 4g area but my 3g still goes in and out a lot. I also just had to do a battery pull because I couldn't get the screen to come back on after it timed out and didn't have a data signal...after about 10 minutes it came back. Very spotty...very upset! My fiance got a Droid 3 and hasn't had one problem.

    I have been having the same problem and it seems to be getting worse over time. The most convenient way that i found is to go to the market and get the app called restart connection and set a shortcut on the desktop and when you loss connection simply tap the shortcut and it will restart connections. I know it is a band aid but it will get you to early November and it is allot better than rebooting your phone 12 times a day.
