I would not put much faith in what CS said regarding a date for the OTA, call back again and you might get someone telling you that they have yet to here of an update or a single issue with the bionic and that its a great flawless phone.
I too have a love/hate relationship with the help at Verizon. There are times when they are helpful and seem to know what's happening.
Then there other days when you have to smile and walk out.
The funny thing for me was a few weeks ago when the Razr was not available to buy but was in stores. I was comparing the Bionic to the Razr and
the rep was amazed I wasn't sure about the Bionic due to the drop outs. She actually looked at her phone and said "What drop outs, I've never heard of that?"
She insisted that in Sacramento they don't have any dropouts, but then she says, "It's probably the 4G network" she then advised that "you should keep you phone
on 3G and then put it on 4G when you need it.
If they start rolling it out on a holiday, it would only confirm VZW cluelessness. Holidays at a call center are difficult to staff, and a time where more experienced staff with seniority take the holiday, leaving less experienced staff to work it. One could argue that they are all clueless, so it doesn't matter but there are bound to be some good ones in the senior staffers. With high turnover that probably means they've been there a whole year. Based on past rollouts, one has to question whether VZW tells call center staff anything.
I called they said "Late November" yea lets see how long it will be delayed again. That's the second time they delayed they had a set date but they pushed it. So don't hold your breath.

guys just do this (I have been doing some thinking and i found out if you remove the following, data is stable the whole time, no more odd ons and offs. The following are: battery data manager and battery manager. Use root uninstaller to freeze them and connection should remain on. And if using a custom rom, you can control with the on and off switch. Also froze data manager service. Let me know if this helps and if anyone needs help doing this. Works for me, I'm in control of data on and off now) till then
