    Yup.....almost tossed the Bionic out the window today

    onto the highway at 70mph

    I simply am losing my patience with this phone.... I traveling in and out of a 4G area all day (I work on the road as a field tech) and the CONSTANT loss of data connectivity is maddening. the phone simply doesn't seem capable of switching from 4g to 3G without a reboot. Add in the fact I like to listen to internet radio stations (most of which are through apps) and the CONSTANT shutting down of the app because of this is making me crazy. I can not listen to the WEEI.com app today for more than 2 minutes without it shutting down. I must have had to reboot the thing no less than 15 times today alone.....just to get data back running

    Now I know that there is an upgrade I could do that is listed here but I am unsure whether I want ot root this phone because I am so displeased with it that I am thinking about just waiting for the Nexus to come out....selling this in a package (phone,charger,extended and regular battery and case) on Ebayfor whatever I can get for it and then just paying retail for the Nexus. If I am going to do that, I don't want to root this phone.

    I am sorry but I feel like I got sold a bill of goods with the Bionic....even with the extended battery my battery life is crap.....the lack of ability to set up separate notifications for different email accounts is moronic and a total oversight on their part....the camera on it is a total joke (push button...wait 5 seconds for focus.....wait ten more seconds for shutter to go)

    BTW.....is is totally impossible for them to have a reboot option on the freaking shutdown screen???? Is it THAT freaking hard to do???

    hopefully I can get 400.00 dollars for the phone soon and simply move the hell on to something that works

    very frustrating Bionic sucker

    Although I doubt you'll get $400, I'd say turn get rid of it and get the Nexus. While I don't have the connection issues you have (just watched a movie via Netflix with no problems) I can see you're frustrated with it.

    Get a replacement from VZW...just tell them it's essential for you to not keep losing data connection due to business.... my Bionic has only lost 4G when VZW had those two days of nationwide issues...my ThunderBolt used to drop $g regularly. I also happen to be using TH3ORY R3BLURR3D so not sure if you're on stock?

    While I'm a newbie with the Bionic, I have been reading the forums and every review out there since before the thing was released to the public. The first app I installed was "Restart Connection". I had read a few posts from folks who had been using it and didn't have connection problems. I travel in and out of 3 & 4G every day, several times a day, and use Wi-Fi when available. I have not had a single connection issue yet (knock on wood).
    If you haven't tried it, maybe it will work for you. I got it from the Market.

    FWIW

    Yes I am still on stock..... I havent been comfortable with the idea of rooting it yet because I just may end up selling it and dont want to risk getting the thing off the OTA path for whomever buys it.

    If I get a replacement it will be my third Bionic......the original one I had to return because an entire row of pixels just turned them selves off.....I had a dead line going right through the middle of the screen.

    just an overall bad experience so far

    Are you using any sort of battery saver even maybe the one that comes pre loaded?

    You can get 400 on ebay. But the new phone will cost you full price which is about 650

    What is it set to? I found out if you use a battery saver set to let's say extream it will stop all data when sleeping and has a hard time kicking data back on. I was having the same problem as you when I used battery savers.

    Are you using any task-killer or anti-virus apps?
