    I haven't gotten a 4G signal since the 4.0.2 update, and it appears we aren't the only ones with the problem. There is a thread open on the Verizon forums, and several others in androidpolice and xda-developers.
    I'm hoping they realize there's an issue.

    So far there is certainly an issue. Just as you described. I am getting 3g when I am usually on 4g, and the 3g is even very slow. If it were not for wi-fi today I would be a bit upset. I am going to see if things get worked out before I lose my cool. We wanted the phone and it was delayed for a while, so we need to give them a bit of a break.

    However it will need to be worked out inside the return timeframe in order for me to keep it.

    I guess we see now why the phone was delayed?? :happy3:

    Though my 4g has been fantastic all day. I've always (well, since September anyway) had a pretty good 4g signal, and mine has been 2-3 bars since I activated it 6 hours ago.

    Will know for sure in about 3 hours when I go home and use it to tether. Netflix usually starts playing within seconds on a 4g tether and never stops playing (always gets way ahead). So we'll see how it goes tonight a little more north in town.
