    Does your 4G ever drop for a few seconds or a couple of minutes?

    From my house I usually have 2 or 3 bars of 4G...so sometimes (about once a day) when i'm web browsing on 4G it will just drop (4G logo in the top right corner disappears and its just bars...then the 4G logo comes back but it is white (it only works when it's blue.)

    this just happened to me for a few minutes, turned the 4G off and then on again (i use a widget from Go Launcher EX to do this), didn't do anything. but now it's back but did it on its own

    Yep, I get this often. It does not seem to happen when I have it set to only 3g though

    Yep, mine does this a lot and my data will drop completely. Its really pissing me off. Have tried everything from pulling the SIM card to getting a new SIM card to a new MAXX. About to dump it for another phone because this is ridiculous and Verizon has zero answers.

    This happened twice in the last ten minutes it's ridiculous. And we shouldn't have to settle for 3G because we paid for LTE.

    Where do you guys live and how long has this been happening? Only been happening to me the last week or so. Download an app called Restore Connectivity Settings from Motorola Mobility and run it. I don't have any battery saving apps or task killers installed but this seems to restore my 4G for a good 3-4 hours. Another irritating thing is your battery goes much faster when its constantly searching for and losing data connection.

    Bay Area over here and I did install that 2 hours ago and rebooted the phone and so forth...then like 10 min ago it dropped. So this can't be a serious fix...

    Facebook app has been known to cause these problems on the razr. Not only is it a battery hog, it also causes other problems. Other apps could be the culprit too. Also, not every tower has 4G, and you may be actually connecting to a tower further away from the 3G tower, and thus you will see it switch back and forth between the closer 3G tower and the further away 4G tower. I notice that at my house. When I lose my 2 bars of 4G, 3G comes in at 4 bars, so I know my phone is trying to connect to a tower further away for 4G. i did remove my Facebook app and then did the following. it will make your phone more stable.

    Turn phone off.

    While off, press and hold both volume keys and power on phone.

    Press volume key down to highlight recovery and then press volume key up to boot into recovery. Then you will see android icon with triangle.

    Press both volume keys.

    Choose clear cache partition using down volume and press power button to clear cache.

    Highlight reboot / restart and press power and your phone will reboot.

    I used to have a very solid 4G signal in central NJ, then I moved to Fort Lauderdale....ugh. My phone indicates 2 or 3 bars in 4G, but it's slow with frequent loss of a data connection and it only takes driving a few blocks to notice I'm down to 3G. I was talking to a sales rep in a Best Buy Mobile store about it and his opinion was that ATT has a more robust network down here. I switched from ATT to Verizon a few years ago in NJ because of poor reception and I don't relish the idea of having to switch back.
