    If i'm in a solid 4g area... it stays 4G.

    If you are on the borderline like where I live, it bounces around.

    Make sure the battery door is on securely... I read somewhere that it acts as an antenna

    Yes but where in the area? If you are on the border between a 4G and a 4G extended area, u might see that.

    I sometimes do in certain areas, and look forward to an app that let's me hard-shutoff each radio when needed

    Are you serious? Dude, you're not always gonna be on 4G. There are lapses in the network. Sometimes, a small portion of land only a few metres in area might drop you to 1X, and everywhere around will give you LTE. It's normal with a cellphone. If you bought the phone expecting 100% all the time LTE connection, you are the one at fault.

    have some patience... 4g network is still new and is constantly being worked on.. give them a few months too smooth out all the deadzone areas for 4g... there rolling out 4g to lot more areas by the end of 2011 which is pretty impressive... a few months wait, for a lifetime of highspeed wireless internet is worth the wait isnt it?

    Im in the same spot right now.. the thing is cycling thru 4g/3g/1x..

    i just dont remember having "page not available" this many times in a day.. on my INC.... ill give it some time.. but.. just testing and browsing.. i see "no network connection" one too many times..

    Id be fine if i can just put the thing on 3g.. until 4g is fully propagated.....

    in my office.. 3 other people got the phone and all exibited the issue.... like.. "no connection".. im not B1tching.. just telling you what we are seeing.. Im an HTC/Android guy.. and i dont wanna see.. "page cannot be displayed" The INC is solid on 3g here.. i dunno what to say.. i was expecting a little more stability with all the delays.

    This isn't good. I'm in a borderline area and I certainly don't want the phone constantly cycling for a signal. Talk about a battery killer; not to mention the inability to connect to the net.

    Thanks for the info. This could be a deal breaker.

    i can bet this is why all the delay.. vzw doesnt need their rep to be tarnished.
