    Dropping 4g every few mins.

    I seem to be dropping 4G every so often when using the internet or data. The 4G system symbol disappears for a few seconds at a time and anything data related comes to a halt.

    Is anyone else seeing this or did I get a lemon?

    Are you on the border of 3g and 4g? I'm in a solid 4g area and it doesn't drop at all.

    I am in the center of charlotte which is nowhere near the border of the 4g coverage.

    I came from a DX and after my TB was activated I could still use the DX data but no calls. I cut my DX off and since then I haven't had an issue. Jfk if its a coincidence or not...

    I am experiencing the same thing when on 4GLTE. The icon constantly appears and disappears and data is spotty. It's like it is "refreshing" the connection to get data going. Then sometimes it drops to 3g and I even saw 1X quite a few times. I thought I got a dud. I did look up the 4g coverage map and it appears I am close to some 4g extended areas and the map states if you are in one of those areas, you will see the phone go into 3g from time to time. I guess I am going to have to go to a solid 4g area to see what I get. Maybe this was the heart of some of the delay.

    I hope when this phone jumps from 4g to 3g and lower, it's not completely killing the data connections. If so, streaming music and whatnot while mobile is going to be a nightmare until they get the 4g infrastructure going full boar.

    An update. Went and ran some errands in a solid 4g area. Well, I guess my house is situated on the edge of a 4g/3g area, cause at home, the 4g icon is constantly disappearing. When I was mobile, it locked on and worked really really fast. The handoff between 4g and 3g (or lower) is causing data to stop. Good news is, I didn't get a bad device. Now all I need is for the 4g network to get better and stronger.

    Good to hear you got it figured out. I truly believe my issue was that the data still working on my x was causing problems

    Greetings. Am in Jacksonville downtown and have downloaded a couple handy monitoring apps due to this very same driver -- the 4G data flow is constantly being interrupted.

    Hasn't been much more than a nuisance so far, but am starting to get to the point where I'll be wanting to broadcast live content over the network to one or more people from my team in a conference (Skype-like) setting.

    Anyone have stats on the cycles of signal interruption? I'll see about posting mine if anyone has an interest.

    I am in Mooresville, not too far from Charlotte, and i am getting drops when using the mobile hotspot, frequently. It seems when i use the USB tether, I do not have an issue. I am not sure whether the issue is with the network or just the mobile hotspot software.
