My Bionic doesn't have this issue. Most people in my immediate area with Bionics don't have this issue. I believe the issue IS Verizon, they own the cell sites, and it is obviously certain sites that are not functioning up to spec. Moto's LTE chipset just seems to be a bit more sensitive to the flakiness. Could be a driver issue on the device, but i'd more likely think it is something on VZW's end. I have a feeling that a firmware update for some piece of LTE equipment or the other was issued prior to the release of the Bionic, and a majority of the sites were updated (which accounts for people with no issues) but some were missed (accounting for the connectivity loss).
Heck, firmware mismatches can wreak havoc on wired network installations, the same thing holds true for cellular networks. I think VZW is blaming Motorola because VZW cannot figure out the issue, so they pretend it is not their issue.
If I have a loss of signal altogether (like going into an underground parking garage via elevator), it takes almost 5 minutes to have the phone finally register back to a 1xRTT, 3G or 4G LTE signal, even in an area that will give me 3 or 4 bars of 4G. Its just dumb.
