I recently upgraded to a RAZR after having a Droid 1 for over 2 years and I'm having problems with the 3g connection. I live outside a 4g area, its about 25 miles away. Sometimes 3g will go slow... very slow, and when this happens I go to speed test and I ping 150-800 with .20 ish down to .01 up. Add to the fact that the phone is connecting to Wichita, KS and I live near Houston Tx. Like I said this only happens some of the time, and in certian areas of my town but all withing a 2-3 mile radius. When the phone is acting normally and one my Driod 1 my ping is around 80-90 with around 2.5 down and .9 to 1 up. Also on my Droid 1 I never had this issue and rarely dropped 3g in the 2+ years of having that phone in the same area.
I went back to the verizon store and they suggested that I keep the LTE on and try that to see if it helps, and of course during that time the phone was acting normal. However just 10 mins after walking out of the store it started up again, kinda frustrating to say the least. Anyone else have similar problems? Should i ask for a new phone? Is this a SIM card problem? I am still on my 2 week grace period.
