    Not ALL Bionics have the data issue as somebody claimed.

    No not all. Just a majority. In fact all my friends who upgraded or flat out bought it here in Hawaii.... all have lost data. Well except one who says he doesn't use it but just connects to wifi. But then he said he tried to 3g/4... it wouldn't come back so he went back to wifi...lol.

    Maybe YOU just jinxed me! Just kidding, I have had mine since Sept 15 and it has just been a great phone. I came from a DX that had every ROM you could put on it and was starting to get a slow. Same day I got the Bionic I rooted it and have kept it ROM free as of now, don't know if that has helped or not but no problems!

    Not keep it a secret, I was agreeing with you, if I had those issues I would be bitter too!

    It's actually a small percentage.
    The only people who post about problems are those who experience them. Those who dont have issues dont seek out forums to ask questions they dont have.

    No, I'm well aware of the fact that you are an "interwebz expert" with all the facts™. (not real facts at all, just going of what you see on Droidforums)

    Wow I really cant believe that there are still people out there complaining about the data issue when the fix has been out there for 2-3 weeks now!!! Like I've said in a few other threads, if you have the issues and have not applied the updates that are available, then either do it or stop complaining.

    The fact that you're so scared about voiding you warranty just shows how ignorant you are of these processes. I've flashed custom roms, leaked updates, etc... so many times I could probably do it with my eyes closed. You know what?? I have NEVER gotten to a point where I couldn't return to 100% stock. The only time you have to worry about "voiding" your warranty is if YOU are stupid enough to return a phone for a warranty replacement still modded/rooted.

    99.9% of the threads that you see that have titles something like "Oh no I bricked my phone" are just people that haven't learned how to recover properly yet and will most likely have their issues addressed and fixed within the first ten posts.

    dude I write firmware for a living. my customers expect my software to simply work. but if there's a bug than I am expected to fix it ASAP, not 3 or 4 months later. it's not a question of not knowing how to apply patches to the phone, it's about the fact that the patches that are out there don't fix this problem. it's about the fact that even motorola has admitted the patches aren't the final fix. It's about the fact that motorola said there'd be a patch early November but now it's 30-60 days from now.

    for someone claiming to be so smart you sure haven't done your homework on this problem.

    Forget both of them, the Bionic and the Razr. I'm a bionic owner and its a great phone. The Razr looks comparable spec wise. Wait for the Galaxy Nexus and be on ICS. It's Time to take it to the next platform.

    Actually, the patches have fixed the problem for 99 percent of us. Have you even bothered trying it? I'd put my money on your answer being no to that question.

    And for those it hasn't helped, its more likely user error or signal problems from the actual tower.

    As far as your attempt at making yourself sound special by saying that your a firmware writer, I highly doubt that you deal with the volume of customers that motorola/Verizon deal with. Could they rush an update out? Absolutely!

    But then guys like you would be complaining about a rushed update that was buggy in other ways.

    Be glad that we are getting an update at all, or go buy a device from another mfg and see how long they take to update their devices. Motorola has been and will continue to be the best at updating their devices, not to mention they are also the quickest in most cases.
