    well i think i figured out why the data drops are happening an this is just my theory the current lte band on the bionic is LTE band 13 but the current LTE band on the 4G network is LTE band 14 if u dont believe me download dhackers ICS an check the LTE status when u do the network switch so my question is why hasnt moto noticed this? i also have the Droid 4 an the LTE band on it is 14 not 13 with a prl of 15098 where the bionic is lte band 13 not 14 with a prl of 15088 any body have any thoughts on this?

    Here's the fact sheet of the bionic, it does have a band listed as 13 but, it's hard to believe that this is the cause of the data drops.

    I mean Motorola and Verizon had to sign off on this device before it hits the stores. Also, I'm one of the few that hasn't had data drop issues, except when Verizon's network has hiccups.

    I don't understand this stuff, but is it soemthing that can be fixed with a software patch, or is it a hardware thing?

    That depends on the hardware but, I tend to agree with you.

    I'm interested in the documentation of the system updates to the Bionic, to compare against the original factsheet.

    I looked at specs for the Rezound, Razr, RazrMaxx Bionic and Droid4; on all specs they are listed with LTE 700 B13 or B13 700 or 700 band 13. Basically specs are all the same.

    And not everyone is having data problems. For example, I've had my Bionic since September and it never had the data problems others had.

    I have had an occasional data drop problem. But then again everyone else in the house has to. And we have Moto, Pantech, HTC, and Samsung. I still think that the datadrop issue is 95% network, and only 5% phone. All 4G networks are having growing pains. My personal belief is that many on here blow these things way out of proportion and create many of their own issues. Notice how many of the other issue threads have dropped off. I wish they would fix things faster, but I have patience. And on January I have three upgrades. So three new phones will all of their problems are in my future. I love it.

    I wonder on how many data problems would disappear (or appear) if we could stand "shoulder to shoulder." I mean, 4G is fantastic at my parents house, but would your phone do as well? Maybe yes, maybe no.

    Location aside, some people's phones are getting a connection approval easier from the carrier, or are able to make a request quicker if it fails.

    I have never had the data drops on 4G ( unless the whole 4G network went down), and I was always on LTE band 13. It would be nice if the fix was that easy, but probably not.

    I agree. These are just random things you found that are different on the bionic. Other than the fact there is this difference there is zero evidence, zero understanding of what these numbers mean and no explanation as to why this would cause problems for just a select group of people. A theory requires some kind of empirical evidence and/or explanations as to why something occurs. Dictating a theory based on arbitrary observations holds no merit.

    I have a bad theory. That those that are complaining of the data drops, are getting the same bad phones that were returned over and over again.

    It could be a combination of bad phones and/or bad 4G LTE SIM cards.
