Try going into settings > data manager and make sure that "backgound data" is checked with a green check mark. I assume that it will be. I tried my phone again and I have exactly the same issue with slow wake up of data after phone inactivity ONLY if my smart action battery extender is on. It turns off background data sync until the phone wakes up.
When you first wake your phone back up the 3G and signal strength icons are white correct? Does the data sync icon appear to the left of the 3G or bluetooth icon for 10-15 seconds? It looks like two circular arrows indicating data is syncing. That would indicate that your background data is turned off for some reason and it has to re-sync which slows your data connection.
OK....problem solved. First of all since I have the Maxx I am not worried about "smart actions". At this point they are not needed. I need data 24 hours a day with my kids and school. (I am updated through email on delays and special needs for school times and those email come in during normal sleeping hours).
Anyway, to make a long story short, I called VZW tech support and they said my phone had a issue after an hour of troubleshooting. Believe me we did everything. He said he could send me a "certified like new device" but he didn't want to since I have been a customer since Oct. 23rd 1999. He told me to go to a local VZW store and they would put me in a new one......not needed...... It was an app i downloaded called "2X battery". By default it sets your data to turn off after 30 seconds of no activity. Once I uninstalled it I have been fine.
Most battery monitors do indeed have built in features such as this. So, if anyone has a similar issue, check the apps you have that have a data saving feature.
Excellent! I'm glad you found it. I knew something was turning off your data while asleep. Way better than getting a new phone and then putting all your apps back on it (including the offending one) and having the same problem pop up again. Those pesky little apps.
2x battery strikes again.
I have it installed but basically using it just for the battery icon. I noticed no dramatic increase in battery life with all the other options.
