    I've been noticing that recently as well, but I think part of the issue is the ICS ROM I'm using.

    I've tried that, but the problem still lies. Do you recommend a factory reset?

    I think my phone is trying to tell me I need the new HTC DNA, lol.

    In the past week, I've been experiencing tons of data drops. When it says 4G LTE, sometimes it will turn off the data for a few seconds, while other times it will continue to say 4G LTE but I can't use any mobile data. The phone has been acting a lot slower, and now a few apps are force closing...

    They just replaced my phone with another TB. It still giving me spotty coverage. From what i understand, TB runs on a certain spectrum from VZ. I am wondering with all the grids they are purchasing; if this has anything to do with it.
    Now that the DNA is out, i am curious but does anyone know if this DNA has an SD slot?
    I am hearing it doesnt have it.

    that stinks. I don't want another thunderbolt especially with all of the issues I am having. Software keeps crashing and now this signal issue.

    I've loved my bolt since I got it at launch. Yes, I know I'm in the small percentage of people who actually loved his phone. But now with the data acting all crazy I think its time I finally used my upgrade. The Note 2 caught my eye and has held my interest. Just waiting on big red to unleash it. Was considering the new HTC Dna, but in my opinion the lack of sd card expansion and a non removable battery have turned my attentions back to the Note 2.

    sent from my Rezound powered bolt of thunder!!!
