I live well within a LTE area and my phone has horrible problems maintaining a data connection. It keeps dropping from 1X to 3G to 4G to nothing. This is a huge disappointment seeing how I came from a OG droid phone which constantly had 3G full bars in my area(literally everywhere). The phone is very impressive with data speeds when it does work (1/10th of the time). I left my house and took the phone on the road in San Diego, the phone still has a problem maintaining a data connection, OUTSIDE! Has anyone else had this problem? Is the phone a dud? If Verizon cannot resolve this issue in 15days, I'm returning my phone, a smartphone is POINTLESS without a stable connection(when you're in a known good area).
