    after many replacements and network surveys being done, VZW has decided to send me a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, should be receiving it Tuesday due to the holiday..
    thank you all for the good conversations and i wish you all the best in the future with your Bionic..

    Unfortunately I think I'm headed down the same road, I just started dropping 4g a few days ago after almost a year with no issues.

    if you have it in you, do it, the bionic is a great phone but the signal problems is driving everyone up a wall, vzw even went as far as waving the contract cancellation fee if i wanted to break away from the contract..

    They're calling me back tomorrow to see how my connection has been over the last few days and to see if I want to make a warranty claim. I just don't want to get another bionic and have the same issues all over again.

    FYI, I left the Bionic 2 weeks ago after some truly bad replacement CLN phones. I have the GNex and loving it. Just installed the VZW JB leak 4.1.1 JRO03O. If you thought ICS was worth the wait JB is running much better. Make sure you check out the Galaxy Nexus Forum; lots of good stuff there. Oh and another perk with the Nexus; unlocked bootloader..... lot of custom dev fun to play with. Good luck my friend.

    Me too but there are some decent roms & kernels for the GNex that will help with that.

    Joined the RAZR MAXX club. Got tired of the BIONIC data drop fest (2 phones - both did it) so I called their support. Was lucky enough to have a tech tell me the BIONIC was a data dropping fool and replaced it with a MAXX. They offer the Nexus, HTC thunderbolt and the RAZR. However if you tell them battery life not OK with RAZR they will offer a MAXX :) Suppose it helps that I told him I rely heavily on my phone for business and couldn't take it anymore. :)
    I highly recommend if you are tired of the BIONIC and are also in the data dropping SOB pool then call Verizon abd get it traded out.

    Even with the few ICS bugs on MAXX - it's still miles better than the BIONIC.

    PS - I wish you BIONIC people the best of luck - may your ICS come sooner than later.

    An ur point is? We have ICS to an a way back to GB for the OTA plus the bionic is superior the only phone that can beat the bionic is the maxx on battery life but only by a mere 4 hrs if the bionic has an extended battery the bionic has superior hardware but had bad software thats all an ics fixed the bad software
