I know that as soon as I call Verizon they will ask me to do that, so time to pre-empt!
I've tried all listed solutions to fix a host of problems, with a brief respite at best. I hate hard resetting, but who doesn't? It is the only option left without getting a new phone. I know it isn't network. My wife's is spot on smooth.
Wish me luck.
(List of Problems)
Random Data Loss
Messaging not allowed. Sending Errors. Complete Lockdown of incoming messages. I would receive a burst after a reset of 14 messages. They received mine. Other times, they did not.
Had a few battery drains but I think I fixed that.
