just talked to Motorola and talked to Verizon 6 times, asking a simple question, when 3G is weak would the bionic go into 1X mode? Motorola said NO, the bionic is only 3G and 4G no 1X Verizon was 50/50 some said yes it should do 1X some said no 1X from my experience: If you are always in a strong 4g area then you will be ok most of the time If you are always in a strong 3g area then you will be ok most of the time If you have weak 3G, the older droids would have connected using 1X, the Bionic will just loose connection. and If you move between 4g and 3g or have weak 3G or 4G you are going to loose connection and it may not come back for a while or rebooting the device. Verizon says it’s a known issue and it would be fixed next release. I really don’t get the logic of Verizon to offer a phone that would not go into 1x until the entire network is 3G capable. Congratulations Verizon, your data coverage now is worse than AT&T if anyone has any insight into this please reply, because at the end of my working day (4pm eastern) i will go back to Verizon and return this phone and wait for the next phone. unless someone tells me that Verizon is dropping 1x support from ALL new devices. I am returning my bionic today, you have only 14 days to return a device to Verizon.
