    I have tried all the available fixes including Airplane mode on and off, SIM card reset, and Verizon refreshing VLR but all were temporary.
    I called Verizon this morning and they stated to turn off Wi-fi completely. When you are not connected to wi-fi and it is searching for a wi-fi signal it interrupts the 4G service for some reason.

    I turned off Wi-fi several hours ago and have had no drops as of yet.

    Other people should try it and report back here!

    It makes sense. I don't have the data problem and WiFi is never on.

    I leave Wifi off and I still have drops with 905. Wasn't an issue on 902. Annoying.

    Wi-Fi isn't the cause of the drops. The drops are caused by the device not being able to correctly register with the network when the network reaches out to the phone...

    Its complicated lol


    DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!

    If your not connected to a network and it is constantly searching for a signal, then yes. Otherwise the wifi radio actually uses less battery than the cell antenna when connected.

    I was having the 4g data drops right before and after the update! So its just gotta be VZW signal issues across the board. Many people with many different phones are having the same problems across the country, so.........?

    Wifi is not the problem I never have it on when data drops and with mine it is 3G and 4G. I think my Bionic is dieing slowly (humid work environment)

    I started getting Network drops on my Bionic right around the .905 update. Since the update it was dropping a few times a day. It never did on .902 (if it did, I didnt notice it).
    I was starting to think it was my phone, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to get a replacement. The new one arrived on Thursday and it's been the same...Data drops a few times a day..I'm going through one now.

    I usually have my Wifi off and still have the "no data" issue in strong signal areas. It usually takes a reboot to clear it up. The other day I did a reboot because of it but was busy and didn't bother checking it afterwards. A while later noted that 3G watchdog thought I had a new SIM so reset its counters. Later yet, I noted that two texts didn't go and I had no data. Rebooted and all was well. Seems to data connectivity is worse since 905. I have to suspect that some of the connectivity issues are tower code too, perhaps that's why some have no problem and others do; location, location, location.
