    Here's the scoop I've had my charge for about 7 months and have never had a problem till the past month. My service drops off. I get no 4g no 3g. I can't make or receive calls or texts. No web. HOWEVER if I turn wifi on and hook up I get service till I shut it off. Sometimes restarting my phone works. Sometimes cycling the data on and off works. Sometimes nothing works and I sit there for 4-6 hours waiting. I notice almost every morning I wake up to no service. And at least once or twice a day ill lose it. Once I get it ill receive all emails and texts.

    I had this problem on a stock charge so I had my buddy root it and change a bunch of stuff. While the phone seems much better, the problem remains.

    Everytime I visit Verizon they just say its probably where I live....yet I've had Verizon for 8 years...cmon guys really?

    Similar thing happening here, started last week about a week after I updated (stock). Was on a strong 4G connection while sitting in Compuware arenas parking lot in Plymouth, MI, suddenly dropped to 3G then 1x then nothing. Tried to go into airplane mode and couldn't get out of it without a reset. Then lost all connectivity a couple times over the weekend. Today, at home, has been better for the most part but not as good as it was, til lately.

    Notice GNex's are having issues also, beginning to think it's network/Samsung related, but who knows, others are having problems too! It's very frustrating when my buddy's iPhone (AT$T) works and I can't even get on the network.

    I have been reading in other forums that VZ has been having network outages recently, maybe that is what you are experiencing?

    My recent experience is similar for the past month.

    VZ has launched the Bionic, Razr and Nexus just weeks apart. I think it's a netwirk management issue where VZ is bumping people off 4G to handle the massive demands. I have no proof, but thinking of how an infrastructure would be managed, it makes sense.
