    I am returning mine tomorrow and do have the choice for a refund or any phone I choose. I am don't feel any better about waiting for the razr though. Is there any reason to believe it won't be the same situation? I am an absolute noob, so fill me in.

    I doubt it...the RAZR has nearly identical guts to the Bionic and Atrix 2 and has the same firmware 2.3.5 so I have a feeling, unless they applied an update that will fix the issues we've all been having, that it's gonna fall victim to the much of the same.

    The other thing about the RAZR is the battery is built in. I believe there's a reset button, but as the Bionic has the "Black Screen of Death" that can only be resolved by a battery pull, it's something to keep in mind. Since the update may resolve that it may not be an issue.

    I must've gotten lucky. Got mine on release day and haven't had enough problems to warrant complaining. I figure alot comes with technology. You want the newest, then you deal with the tech issues. Otherwise go with something older that's had the bugs worked out.

    if you're getting a new phone have you looked into the nexus? but as far as bugs are concerned that might be even worse sine it is the first 4.0 android phone. i would never want to deal with the terrible battery life the rezound is sure to provide.

    I too have had Bionic HELL! I'm on my 4th Bionic. 2 new and 2 referb. I wanted to get the Razr instead. But current reviews say the camera is just as bad as the Bionic and the data issue is still present in the Razr. So I don't want the hassle to swap. Now if the Bionic gets worse I may change my mind.

    I guess I was lucky except for the day that verizon lost data,I have not had any issues. My 4g to 3g was a little slow but since I enabled roaming even that is working flawlessly now could it be location are just a bad batch of phones.
