    I had been traveling this weekend in NC, TN and VA and during that time I lost data connection with both 3G and 4G. It still showed bars but no connection and no 3G or 4G showing. I called Verizon and they tried to reset, etc. but did not know what was happening. Are you folks saying that this is widespread? What is to be done? Take it to Verizon?

    Thanks

    Connection Problems/try this

    Was having the same problem and after a call to Verizon Tech Help I think it's fixed. If your in a 3G only area make this setting change. Settings/Wireless&networks/Mobile networks/network mode/CDMA only. When you go to a 4G area change back to CDMA/LTE. After doing this I have had no further problems. According to the tech this eliminates the phone always searching for a 4G connection.....Don

    I wish it were as easy as setting it to CDMA only. Sometimes it works for a bit, but (for me) it will ALWAYS lose data eventually, no matter what setting I'm on.

    Verizon is aware of the issue and a fix is due to be in the next update in early Nov.
    Power cycle is the only option.

    Same problem

    I understand there is a patch in the works but this is really disappointing.

    I don't live in a 4g area but my 3g still goes in and out a lot. I also just had to do a battery pull because I couldn't get the screen to come back on after it timed out and didn't have a data signal...after about 10 minutes it came back. Very spotty...very upset! My fiance got a Droid 3 and hasn't had one problem.

    I have been having the same problem and it seems to be getting worse over time. The most convenient way that i found is to go to the market and get the app called restart connection and set a shortcut on the desktop and when you loss connection simply tap the shortcut and it will restart connections. I know it is a band aid but it will get you to early November and it is allot better than rebooting your phone 12 times a day.

    No problem

    It's been two days since I switched to CDMA only and not one drop out. Maybe I lucked out!!!

    As far as the apps randomly disappearing issue... The bionic has problems with applications that are stored on the SD card (aka the media area). Go through your apps list and make sure they are all moved to the phone storage. This will solve the apps uninstalling themselves. Some apps in the market are set to automatically install to the SD card, so if you are having issues with specific apps, this is the problem.

    Restart Connections from the market cleared this up for me even after a restart wouldn't. Definitely worth a try.
