    I read the same info, it did require that the phone be rebooted without the sim, I don't know why, but it worked. I went from 1x at my house almost all of the time, to 3g. The signal strength is now on par with my Thunderbolt.
    Sadly, if I walk 100 yards in either direction out my front door, I get solid 4g.

    Got my replacement. Reception is a tiny bit better, but I think this has got to be a thing with this phone.

    I do not know IF the two issues are related but my reception was spotty and 4g was non-existent. I went and got new SIM cards (it took three if you count the one it came with) the third one was the charm 5 bars AND a 4G signal where there really isn't supposed to be much of one (border area)
    Would love it IF a new SIM worked for everyone with a reception or 4g issue.

    Back to MAXX, returned S3

    Back to MAXX

    Had the S3 for over a month and cannot take it any more! The reception is horrible is areas that were fantastic with my MAXX. Sticking with Motorola (rooted).

    Little history: Verizon store changed out SIM. No difference. Then went to the phone support folks and spoke with Verizon Level 2 techs. They reiterated that there was a solution in the works and did not know when it will be out. They are taking back my S3 and giving me a new MAXX. Cannot get one of the newer phones as a swap (DNA, MAXX HD, ETC) but a Maxx will make me very happy.

    Learned my lesson - my friends tell me newer is not always better and now I believe.

    Just curious where are you at? I just came back from a spot where neither my Bionic or my Gnex got good signal with S3 4G and all. Im in strong 4G here S3 dont skio a beat. I did have some problems on the way to Wi but seem to be much better after HE. I was gonna try JB leak but working so good I can wait.
