    My Bionic data connection hangs when going from 4g to 3g. So i toggled off 4g to fix that. Now it hangs when i leave my wifi in the house. So to prevent data loss i now have to turn off wifi. I see a iphone in my future. This phone is crap

    I'm on the .901 build - but was having lots of data issues yesterday and stopped by VZW store. When walking in, I had zero data for the previous 2 hours. CSR did a battery pull, and everything was now good. No more data drops, got 4G back, switching between 3G/4G has been fine today, and acquiring 4G when I turn on the phone is pretty instant.

    I was considering a factory reset, but not going to bother since it's all good now. So, if you have been running a while without a battery pull, it might help.

    Njoy...

    I have been keeping my phone in 3g to keep from losing data. My house where I experience this is 4 miles from the cell tower. The 4g signal strength is considered good. At work where the strength is excellent today I had zero drops. As soon as I arrived home the problem surfaced. Appears to be the culprit.

    I recently upgraded to .901 and I have STILL been having connection issues in the Chicago area for the last 5-6 days!!! I don't really know if it is the fault of the phone or if this is still VZW still ironing out their 4G LTE network issues again.

    In SF Area...I get no Verizon 4g or 3g on my newRAZR. Only data connection I get is at home through WiFi. Patience is one thing. No public acknowledgement of their issues is another. If the technology is unreliable or not ready for prime time should they be selling it?

    Trust me, it's the 4G network; not the phone. Unfortunately, when the 4G network isn't working, 3G seems to get messed up even in CDMA-only mode. The only way around it is to get a 3G-only phone. The iPhone would solve your issues, being a 3G only device. Mine was rock solid with data, only problem is that it was slower than molasses.

    Still on 893 and up until the last few days I had great data service. Then since Saturday I have had issues 90% of the time I pick it up. There have only been a couple of times in the last few days where I haven't had to toggle airplane mode and I had one random reboot and one bsod. Prior to this week I had very few issues (aside from national outages).

    Ok so today I decide to try 4g again, and to my surprise my phone has improved. Its like night and day. For the most part I have solid 4g. Occasionally it will go to 3g and them back to 4g. Again I am four miles from the cell tower. Did Verizon send out a software update to there cell towers. I have had no drops at all and still running 893. Makes me feel like a have a 4g phone again.
