I've been doing a lot of research before getting a new phone and just about decided on upgrading from my Droid X to a Razr M. But then I started coming across posts about the M having signal issues. This would definitely be a problem for me as my husband and I do a lot of traveling. For several months out of the year we are in a rural area of Missouri that I term "the middle of nowhere". It is a dead zone on Verizon's coverage map but we are able to use a network extender to get cell service. It's not 4G, and sometimes not even 3G, but it is enough for us to use our phones to make calls. We have wi-fi and use our laptops for internet, but in the surrounding 3G areas we use our phones for internet. We also use the GPS feature while traveling.
I would like to hear from Razr M owners, especially those who live in non-4G areas, as to how the M is performing for calls as well as data. Many of the posts regarding the diminished signal strength were written back when the phone first came out. Has there been any resolution to this issue? Does using a case with the phone improve reception? And if the Razr M has a problem with signal reception, would the Razr HD (or another phone) be better choice?
