    My work is forcing me back to VZW. I currently have both my work and personal line on ATT. My work phone is a Note 3. He's my concern is that the VZW Note 3 since update to KK is lighting up forums with signal issues. I travel all over the Midwest and all the way out to Washington and Alaska.

    So is the signal issue blown out of portion? What are you suggestions? I like the LG 3 but will be forced over before the release. I do like the look of the M8 but take a lot of pictures and concerned about the negative thoughts on the camera. I have also considered the S5, but had horrible luck with the S4. My Note 3 on ATT has been pretty good.

    Thank for your thoughts. As for price it not an issue.

    Do you have to get a brand new phone with the switch to Verizon? If not, maybe a used phone can hold you over until the G3 comes out or if they fix the Note 3 signal issues?

    I can buy a used phone it's all up to me. That thought crossed my mind.

    Well if you're waiting for the G3, maybe that would be the best option.

    Would they let you pre order a G3 and muddle through the next few days still on AT&T?

    I was able to start the process by preordering G3. Got it up and running on Thursday. Liking it so far.

    I'm glad you purchased the G3. The Note 3 signal issue is huge. My mom, with the Note 2, has the issue.

    On Tuesday I returned the G3. I was disappointed in several things. 1. battery life, 2. Camera, 3. Some of LG UI

    I opted to get a VZW Note 3. To my surprise reception has been better on the Note 3 vs G3.

    That's actually really surprising. Verizon's forums have been blown up by Note 3 signal issues.

    I agree, my son had to do a warranty exchange because of the signal issues.

    I do see fewer bars in places but not dropped calls or slow data.
