    I've had the bionic since the release date, and I was very excited to get it, but all I've had was problems. Update after update, the problems seem to not get wholly fixed, and some others seem to appear. I now have the 902 system, and I've been experiencing more data drops, random black screens, wifi connectivity issues, and very slow LTE speeds. My friend has the nexus and he gets much better service than I do. I just feel like Moto is trying to lose customers, because they're about to lose one.

    I also called VZW and they made me do ANOTHER device reset. This is also my 4th Bionic because of software issues.

    Since you're on your 4th Bionic, I think if you insist on a different devices Verizon may give it to you.
    I wouldn't expect a Gnex, but maybe.
    I had a Thunderbolt swapped for a Bionic, 2 days later had the Bionic swapped for a Stratosphere.
    Ended up buying my wife an iphone and using her Thunderbolt.
    The Bionic couldn't hold a data signal and the Stratosphere was just too underpowered. They both made me miss my Thunderbolt.

    Did you have better service on some of the ROMS you listed in your sig? I'm assuming you have wiped data and performed all the steps to cleanly install the update, just as if you were installing a new ROM. Just because .902 hit the street doesn't mean you have to use it, if one of your ROMS operated better for you, why not use that?

    From day 1 of owning my bionic only issue i had was the constant switch from 4g to 3g. Living in Orlando,fl 4g is pretty much everywhere. Since all these updates .902 is very stable. Had 1 drop in connection but only lasted a few seconds. Been a little over a week since .902. Im rooted with no roms or other tweaks. So if you want to sell your bionic ill buy it. Then again your not a Icrap trolling are u?

    Please don't read this as confrontational...just another POV...but I don't understand how someone will root a phone, throw all different kinds of ROMs on there, and then complain about the phone.

    I came from a D1, rooted the hell out of it and enjoyed it. When I upgraded to my Bionic, I liked the UX enough to keep stock on it until I felt the need to root...or just got bored with it. Hasn't happened yet, still stock...and I am one of those with 0-complaints about the phone overall and I have never had to return/exchange for another one. I really, REALLY love this phone. Very excited about it even today and not wavering when I see phones like the RAZR come out right after it.

    I can see that there may be a defective phone that will need to be exchanged every once in a while. It happens. Factory dud. However, if one person is HAVING to exchange a Bionic 3, 4, 5x...then that seems more than just bad coincidence. It seems like you're putting too much in the punch bowl when it may have tasted just fine. I agree...it would SUCK if I had a phone and needed to exchange it 4 or 5 times, but I think that if that was the case and it was the PHONE'S fault, then the problem would be much, much more widespread...to even those who don't root.

    I support rooting. Loved it on my D1.
    But I think that if you go in, tamper with the device to root, throw in someone else's code/OS into the device, there are GOING to be hiccups...and I don't know that I, in good conscious, blame the device itself for the multitude of exchanges that IT'S not necessarily making you go through...but you yourself are making you go through.

    Again, this is non-confrontational...it's just that it seemed the blame was aimed at the wrong recipient.
    I think we all know Moto isn't "trying to lose customers." They released a product...but you're complaining not of the product they gave you, but the product you turned it into......no?

    I doubt he's trolling. But I am kind of sick of the whining. Not because I don't believe the phone has issues, because it does. But because so many people trash on the Bionic that once someone reads it, every little issue suddenly becomes a travesty.

    My advice is this: get the Nexus because I assure you, it is 100% bug free, and you will NEVER be frustrated with it. I've also heard it can read minds. Oh, and once you get it, hope that none of your friends have a Razr Maxx or else your nexus well see it and it'll start to suck.

    I read about all these people having trouble with their Bionic and I think I must be lucky not having any issues. I have had mine since launch and I have had a total of 4 bsod which required battery pulls and the occassional data drop but for the most part it has been a solid phone. After playing with the Nexus though I do wish I had waited to upgrade, especially now that it looks like ICS isn't coming anytime soon.

    I dont know but if it was me with returning the phone 4 to 5 times , i think i would have stopped at the second return. I would have switched to something else. Majority of the times when you do return your phone they give a refurbished one. But then again someone is out to get you. :blink:
