    There are times in which my Bionic will lose connection to the Verizon 3G and the 4GLTE, but it shows I still have bars. The only way I can get it back is to turn off the phone completely and turn it back on. Is there a way to solve this?

    I have the same issue and frankly is becoming a more constant problem. I have turned of the device and I still have no connection. On top of that I have to deal with not being able to store the apps to my sd card because the apps will be deleted. I swear for all the money I paid to get this phone I am just about done with this crap. For all the waiting on this phone and for all the money this is not worth the price. This is ridiculous! Motorola and Verizon shouldn't push crap that is not ready for use. :angry:

    I am having connection issues as well. Most of today I have had zero data connection? The only way I am able to type and send this is over wifi. I'm really pissed off. I went to the store to exchange it and the damn thing worked.. I get home and no data, anywhere....... Just saying

    This is absolutely unacceptable. $300 phone + $30 data plan, this phone should NEVER have issues like this. I've been without data all night. The most important part of a smart phone is the data, I can't believe a company would bring a phone to market with known issues as crippling to the overall use of the product as this. I got rid of my OG Droid for EXACTLY this reason. Early November isn't soon enough for a patch. The problem is getting worse and more frequent, I have zero confidence in this phone. Seriously considering (shudder) the new iphone.

    Same problem here. Luckily I am near a wifi connection right now because it has been out for hours. I desperately need it fixed before work tomorrow. I am so sick if all the bugs on this crap.

    Many parts of the nation are out today. There is another thread going and people are chiming in from all over with all brands of phones.

    yes, but this issue has been going on since the phone came out. Apps randomly disappear from the phone and have to be re-downloaded and reinstalled. Very bad if one of them is say, an email app or some other productivity app that disappears without warning, while you're waiting for an important message via that application. Same is true for the data outages with this phone. several times I've been waiting for a contract to be emailed and never got it because the phone lost it's data connection. It's a known issue, that they claim they are working on, and that we may see a patch in November, then again we were supposed to have this phone in our hands months before it actually was released, so not holding my breath about any dates posted.

    Guys called Verizon there is a nation wide outage in the LTE network. The rep said to switch to standard 3G or take out the data card...Still...i told him this problem persists ....and of course the dude got an earful of my frustration.

    He's lying. Well maybe for 4g. But for 3g why is my bionic still out and the iphone 4 still going good right next to me? I think there's more to it than what they are saying. I'm not making anything up but from what I gather from today's posts is that our bionic has progressively gotten worse in keeping connected to data while other phones are doing fine. And Verizon's excuse is that their network went down. When in fact it didn't or isn't. They shouldn't lie to us. Just hurry up with the ota fix!!!!

    I have the same problem. Also, it seems that when I am using mobile hotspot, I have to keep my screen on in order to not have loss of data. Is there an option that turns off/on 3G/LTE to save battery life? I would prefer to keep my screen off while I'm just using my Bionic to wirelessly tether.
