    Getting SO frustrated with Drops

    This is not one of those "I hate MY RAZR" or "I am returning my RAZR" threads. I do LOVE my RAZR, but I have to vent that it is almost impossible to leave my house without some sort of loss of all data where I am unable to get either 4G or 3G data for anywhere from a few minutes to longer periods of time. I live in the heart of the Pittsburgh area where 4G is strong and I rarely go beyond a 10 mile radius of my house. I have a constant and strong 4G signal at my house (where I generally use WIFI anyhow), but I have been left stranded without ANY data so many times this week when I am away from home and when I most need it.

    OK. I feel a little better now. I am patiently waiting for them to stabilize things.

    Vent away. I am about to return this for an iPhone. It's an absolute joke to pay $300 for a phone and not have data. My old blackberry always had data and the razr fails. My wifes OG has data but not the great razr.
    Their 4g map is an out right lie. I can't even consistently get 3G let alone 4.

    Ok, I thought that would make me feel better but not much. Still with a phone with no data connection.

    I am in Pgh, and mine has stabilized recently, luckily! But it has been a frustrating month! Hopefully it will continue to improve...

    Guys thanks for this thread. Because I was half way to the store to return my nexus. It seems like vzw really needs to get there stuff together.

    These dual processor 4G smart phones (which all have poor battery life) are like owning a brand new 12 cylinder Ferrari with a 1 gallon gas tank.

    This is such a strange deal. Each phone model has both good and bad examples. It's literally a crap shoot when you walk in to a store and pick up a phone. I just cant imagine what the variables are??

    Is this likely a problem with Verizon? Or with the Razr? I've been having issues too with data drops and even a handful of deadzones for voice, though that's less of an issue.

    I've had the phone now for a couple months and I want to like it.......

    Im having pretty good luck toggling airplane mode. If I get a drop that isnt corrected quickly, I use my airplane widget and it seems to help. Hopefully a better fix is coming soon

    What does airplane mode do, and why would it help?
    Thanks.

    VZW had 4g troubles last month. They had three nation-wide blackouts in as many weeks. I was thinking that the cells in my area sucked but it was wide spread.

    Perhaps they're still having troubles in certain areas?
