    Can anyone confirm that the update helped with data connection?

    I think the general consensus is that it doesn't completely fix it, and there are still issues, but a lot of people would say it definitely helps with consistency.

    I did it all last Fri night and it has helped 90%. Work was my biggest problem w/ data loss and I haven't been in since the update but everywhere else its been good. Usually only drops off 1-2x a day now and toggling ap mode has brought it right back every time...that almost never worked before. I was gonna do the 5.6.893 update which would I guess help it even more, but I can live with this just fine til the final build comes out.

    I have to agree withe thejacked1. Switch over from wifi to 3/4g is also much improved.

    Ive been on 5.5.893 and 5.6.893 and its nothing special. Not much improvement. Not even going to bother with 5.7.893
