    Went through 4 charge and still got issues and same with my hubby. VZW offered a free replacement. Since upgrade is in 4 mos we went for the Tbolt andBionic then we will upgrade to Rezound.

    I am just leaving work now to take this pos back. It is amazing how crappy this phone is. No 3G, no 4G, no LED, cheap plastic, dropped calls, and it is sloooooow. I can't take it anymore.

    We called and complained. We wanted the ReZound but its too new to do a replacement. So whynot get rid of the charge than waiting another 4 mos with same issue. Bolt only have battery and I have access to the plug.

    So, I ended up trading it in for the Razr. This phone blows the Charge out of the water, it isn't even close! Best phone I have owned for quite a while. I honestly can't believe they put the Charge on the market. That phone was THAT bad.

    Rip thats a bold statement since you've only had the Razr for a day. Not saying it can't be true but i think it would take more then 24 hours to be the best.

    Coming from the Charge, a rock would be a better phone. Honestly though, the Razr is amazing. There isn't a phone on the market(until maybe the Nexus comes out) that compares(that is android). What other phone is better?

    I have a charge and have had no major problems with it. The only thing i complain about is the small amount of ram it has. Then again i got the phone as a free upgrade from the fasinate that had the problem of not recieving phone calls. So to say this phone is crap like you have is IMHO a bit over board. But your experience could be different from mine.

    My experience along with a ton of people was pretty bad. I understand all phones are different but the Charge had a high percentage of unsatisfied users. It was laggy, 3G&4G never connected(so no data anyway), had to turn data off if I wanted it to last over night, the battery was horrid at best, and the plastic feel of it was a huge turn off. It felt like it was from the dollar store.

    The data connection issue has been on all of the 4g phones that I've read about. I charge my phone over night but my phone lasts me though the whole day with moderate usage. The Charge has the same build quality to me as the Fascinate. I won't lie i'm already looking at getting a new phone and with my wife's upgrade coming up next month (and my wife not caring what phone she has as long as it makes call and send txts) i'll be looking at getting the :hail:Galaxy Nexus.

    My T-Bolt finally arrived. Big difference I tell ya. We drive thru a spot daily and always drop calls on the Charge. The T-Bolt never dropped the call. I am just overal disapointed that all roms are abansoned for the T-Bolt.

    The charge def had radio issues for me as well till i updated to ep4 leaked radios and now i have a better signal then my old droid x which always had great reception. Also i had a thunderbolt that thing was like lugging a 5 pound brick around. Razr is def way better i want one!! I know alot of people dont tweak there phones but my charge is crazy fast no lag even with livewallpapers. I get 2400 quadrant which is pretty decent. Im running a custom rom with ext4 and 1200mhz oc.

    So is the issue that the charge had problems in the beggining , so many people got upset with it.... then updates came in allowing the Charge to perform much better?

    is this why people talk so badly on the Charge.

    The overall reviews of the charge don't seem to be that bad. :S

    I'm hearing that after the OTA leak that's out there this phone's running as fast and smooth as anything out there. That and the fact that my area is fully saturated with a full 4G signal i'm pretty excited about the upgrade this Tuesday!
