    I didn't have the drops like others did; in fact it seems a bit better. Of course, since the update (for me) was only about 3 hours ago, I have to use the phone with the update for a few days just to get an average.

    I wasn't able to keep a data connection for the first 6 hours after getting the update. I tried all the same things I did before getting the update. My biggest problem now is that after my phone goes to sleep the data drops and I can't get it to come back. Meaning if I have a data connection then let my phone time out, when I wake the Phone back up the data connection is gone. It was super frustrating at work today when I couldn't listen to Slacker because I couldn't keep a connection. I'm not running any task killers or antivirus apps. I am running Juice Defender and im not sure if that is my problem or not. Hopefully Verizon is having issues today and this will get fixed because I've been waiting for this update for a long time and this is extremely frustrating.

    No data drops so far. Seemed before if i did a complete factory data reset they would always clear up for a day ir so. Been on ota for about 3 hours now. Ill just wait and see if it holds out.

    Before update I would get a data drop maybe once or twice a week, did the update this morning and have had six data drops today. I must say that the camera shutter lag is gone so that's a good thing....

    I did read somewhere in the forums that jucie defender was thought to cause a problem with data drops. Sorry I don't remember which one. You read through so many threads it's hard to remember where you read what sometimes. Try unistalling for a day or two and see if that helps.

    I have been running Juice Defender for a couple of months on stock Bionic. I have not noticed a change in network drops pre/post todays update. Working great!

    After I wrote my post I did a battery pull to see if it would help at all and ever since then I haven't had a single drop. Fingers are crossed it won't start acting up after this post! If it does I might remove JD for a few days as you recommended. Thanks.

    The update didn't help with my data dropouts. Still happens.

    But I already knew it wouldn't when folks started claiming that it was the same as the leaked patch, and that one didn't fix the data dropout issues.

    So, as far as I'm concerned, it's a useless update. Ya the cam focuses faster, but whoopdeedoo... the camera doesn't connect me online when I need to.

    I have no reason to be excited about this update. Still waiting for my Bionic to work right.

    I'm sure my area has a little to do with it, as I'm on the outskirts of Houston, and while I'm outside, I get OK 4G signal, and it improves as I head closer to town, but there are times when the signal drops down to 1 bar or less.

    But that shouldn't be a problem, the 3G signal is good everywhere around the Houston area. But instead of dropping down to 3g, it just drops to "no connection".

    My first Bionic did the same thing, so it's not just this one phone doing it.

    But I'm not complaining this update didn't fix it, from what I've read, the "testers" were still getting the drop out issues. So I wasn't expecting it to be fixed.

    I can't say why others are reporting their data dropouts are fixed when this patch is already documented as NOT fixing them, unless there are multiple causes for the data dropouts and the ones causing mine aren't addressed in that patch.

    Usually my test to see if data drops are still happenings is when I check my phone in the morning after being plugged in all night. My last email I received last night was at 12:08am. I had no data connectivity from then until I woke up this morning. I had over 10 messages sent after that time. I had to airplane mode to get data again. So no, data is not any better.

    I'd say you hit the nail on the head... For many it is fixed as they have indicated, since this just a partial patch and not all inclusive, your particular issues will hopefully beer fixed asap with another patch.
