    My Droid keeps dropping calls as soon as 5 seconds outbound and almost immediately on some inbound calls. I'm using Google Voice, as i have for quite a while, and do not believe that is the issue.

    Is anyone else encountering this problem? It's quite frustrating, and my office has never been a dead spot before. I've been using the Verizon network for many years now.

    no I haven't had any problems with dropped calls, not even up in the mountain area where my bars go down, where I never got signal with AT&T.

    what you can do is dial *228, i believe it was and it resets your signal to the cell tower? I haven't had any problems and clarity is 10x better than AT&T so i have no reason to, but it is in the forum somewhere...

    k, dumb question since I do not have Google voice. Have you tried not using google Voice? If so how does it work then? I have never dropped a call with my Droid at all.

    Spend a week making normal calls to rule this out for sure. I haven't dropped a call yet.

    Never dropped a call. I used to once in a while with my voyager but never on the droid.

    No dropped calls for me either on my Droid. I dont use google voice all the time but when I do I am not having an issue. I use google voice maybe once or twice a week if that.

    I believe it was because i was running evrc-b switched over to 13k and it quit.

    Thank you for all the helpful replies, by thee way. :) It's appreciated.
