    Is it me or was 893 better than 902. With 893 I maybe had 1 data drop a week and it ran smoothly. Now with 902 it is way slower. I struggle with it even got so bad that I couldn't make a call. I have called Verizon and they didn't have any network issues. It ran good for about two days and had been downhill from them on. Am I the only one fed up with 902 already?

    I was on .901 since December, which was better than .893 for me. Not really noticing much difference between .901 & .902 though.

    I've been running .902 since last Tuesday, so almost a week. It's working great for me. No data drops.

    Same here, 902 has been fantastic. No data drops at all, just like with 901.

    I haven't had a data drop (that I've noticed) yet, and my battery life has been just the same as it's always been (pretty good, I guess, it'll last a work day without a charge).
    My battery did act real weird when it got super cold a few weeks ago. I had it out on a ski lift at like 11000 ft altitude and 10 degrees F and it went from 80% to 20% to 5% in about ten seconds, then stayed at 5% for the rest of the day.
    I had to reboot for it to be able to say the battery was any more than 5% full after that.
    I've heard of people doing "battery cycles" to fix weird battery issues: drain battery till dead, then fully charge.

    Its either you or where you are located. Deodexed, bloat frozen and signal and battery life are significantly better.

    the bionic actually seems to run smoother with 902, and my ext battery lasts longer now than it did with 893. I will deal with some new bloat since phone runs better

    902 is way better than 893. Battery and signal are no comparison.
