    Wow...Every thread I read has dlo running his mouth. If he's that unhappy with the Bionic, why in the hell is he on the Bionic forum? I LOVE my Bionic. It could use a snappier camera, but other than that, it's the best phone I've owned. And I've owned a lot. Phones are like everything else when it comes to technology. You get good ones, and you get not so good ones. I happen to get a good one. Dlo, you are not informing people with the correct information. The people with problematic Bionics are the minority. Fact!

    I've posted this before but anyway I was having data loss issues for a month or so until my area got 4g. Now I've had a perfect bionic with zero issues for over a month now. If my bionic was at fault with the data loss then getting 4g would not have helped my issues. My wives thunderbolt and my friends revolution both had data loss issues from time to time.
    Also, my friend and I had downloaded a battery saver app that would turn off data when it was sleeping to save battery. Well it caused more issues with data loss trying to turn 3g on when awakened.
    I don't think all these issues are on the bionic and that the towers and signal strength has a lot to do with it. If it were just the bionic then I wouldn't be loving my phone this much with zero issues now that I have 4g.

    I hate jumping in but honesty....."fact"? Fact? Even Verizon and Motorola reps acknowledged it so I guess its a "non" problem. That ota produced was for the 5% that had problems I guess? Highly unlikely.

    He didn't say it was a non issue or non problem. He said the people who were having issues are in the minority. That is a fact.

    Just look at the sampling if bionic users in the forum. Most of us are happy, and many of the parts you see are the same people just repeating themselves over and over.

    Nobody should be considered ignorant or dumb for choosing not to root or not to take a leaked update. The OP DOES need to know there have been at least a few issues with the phone. Nobody in this thread knows the exact statistic, but clearly enough people had Motorola's attention quickly to start working on an update.

    Keep it civil and productive as I'm about half a step from closing this one up. The OP asked for help and opinions, not bickering.

    Forget about the bionic and the razr? I don't think any one phone will move us to the next platform as both the razr and bionic will both get ICS, nexus will just be the first. I am pretty confident, and this is just my opinion on based on specs and what I've read, that I will be happier with a fixed bionic than a nexus, again, JMO..

    Mine is horrible, even after the 893 update - as a matter of fact I think it's worse, at least eight times a day

    Got to love this quote as it holds no real truth, just because it worked for you does not mean it's going to work for everyone else, I applied the update thinking things would improve but they went way downhill as did the battery life - I have an extended that ends up on 17% after 8hours off of the charger and my 4 data drops has doubled to at least 8 a day, now if I can't come to a Droid Forum and express my concerns about an issue I am currently having or an anticipated one I feel is going to be evident in my daily life as a direct result of my android phone then where else shall I go ???


    You have to think about the bigger picture and take more than yourself into consideration - yeah I am not complaining about it, but it is a problem, this is a forum, and the more people talk the more likely something will be done about it :wink-b:

    1. Which .893 version are you on?
    2. Have you pulled the SIM card and reseated it firmly?

    What he said!

    Have you guys reseated your Sim cards? I know that's helped alot if people that were continuing to have problems after flashing the patches.

    As far as your battery goes, did you wipe the battery stats and calibrate like you should have? how many days have you been running the update? sometimes it can take 2-3 full battery cycles before the system can read the battery completely accurate

    I've had 4 different Bionics and literally 8 different SIM cards b/c I kept reactivating my Inc2 when I had data problems, then wanting to reactivate the Bionic to try something new again. I rooted, updated with leaks, etc. Some days I thought it was better, then the next day it would suck again.

    I'm not saying 893 doesn't help, but it's not helping everyone. There's not a single solution that fixes 100% of the problems yet. The network is part of the problem as well.

    For what it's worth, has anybody tried getting into the modem settings and changing the phone over to evdo from eHRPD? That, theoretically, should fix it if possible on the Bionic... assuming eHRPD is the problem, which I'm convinced that's the bulk of the problem on most of the 4G Verizon phones...

    I'll run my mouth, you betcha!

    You all make me laugh at how hard you're defending this phone.... saying we should be happy to have it because other phones have more problems too, and that unless anyone has tried all the patches out there, tried rooting their phone and installed custom kernels and ROM's, then they have no right to complain that the phone doesn't work like it should.

    I LOL at this retarded reasoning! Especially because I know that even if you haven't had the data drop out problem yet, you will. It's just a matter of time. Those of you that claim otherwise just won't admit it. Fanboi style.

    You have no clue what y'all are talking about when you say "fact". LOL. You're stats are the number of posts on Droidforums, for cryin' out loud!! That one made me LOL the hardest!
