    So all day today I have no 4G or 3G signal. Was starting to get PO'ed and was really ready to go down to Verizon and tell them to shove their phone and 4G network (as I use 4G/3G all day for work purposes).

    I had rebooted the phone multiple times, toggled between Airplane and regular mode and nothing, made sure the sim card was seated correctly...etc.

    Then around 4 pm I am playing around with options, and get to the Mobile network settings screen and found that Data enabled was not checked off...I check marked it, low and behold 4G comes back.

    This would have been all well and good, had I ever unchecked it, hell I had never been to the Mobile network settings before.

    Anyone ever have this problem?

    Juice Defender will do that if allowed to manage your data connection. I don't think thats a default setting though.

    Also there's many toggles. I use Quick Settings. Do you use any of those?

    Nevermind, I am a moron.

    I use Gummyjar ROM and I think what happened was I toggled data off accidentally on the notification bar.

    This thread can now become the "Flame the new guy" thread.

    Thanks for posting, I would have been trying to figure this out forever.

    I was swearing so hard about Verizon today to...lol

    Same thing happened to me. I ended up calling customer support and the guy told me to go over to mobile network and it seems that mine was unchecked as well when I didn't uncheck it. I asked him why did that happen and he said it just sometimes happen with 4G devices.

    So I just said thanks and hung up.

    The Nexus is known to constantly drop data. That's why I returned mine and got the Rezound.

    Yeah, it didn't drop data. It was user error.

    Sorry to hear you didn't stick with the Nexus.

    Now, now.

    Don't turn this into a Nexus vs Rezound vs Whatever thread.
