I've had my Bionic since a couple of days after it came out. Like many I love the phone apart from the data drops and in truth, at times, this makes me hate the freaking thing! There is no doubt this is by far the fastest & coolest smartphone I've ever owned but the regular data drops cause me so much frustration. GPS lock, although improved by the version updates, is also very unreliable - turn GPS on/off, switch phone on/off ad nauseum etc. I use the phone a lot for navigation at work and once I lose the data, navigation stops working as well.
My question is, is it only the Bionic that suffers from the data drops & GPS issues or does it also affect the other 4G phones?
Do you think Verizon would be willing to bargain with me on replacing the phone with an alternate 4g phone? I was reluctant to do this for a long time because I have invested quite a bit in case, chargers, car dock, screen protectors etc but enough is enough, I think I have been very patient despite the frustrations.
I would be willing to pay partially for an upgrade, I don't know if that is an option but interested to know what other posters would advise or of any successes or failures.
