    If you are one of the rare users that is experiencing data connection issues with your new Droid RAZR, we thought we'd share an idea with you that can temporarily mitigate the issue, and possible improve your battery life as well. Even though this little quick tip is really common sense, it is still useful if you haven't thought of it. Also, keep in mind that this is really just a temp fix until Verizon/Motorola works out a more permanent fix for the issue. Here's the tip:
    So, there you have it guys... a decent temp solution, until the issue gets a permanent fix. Obviously, it isn't perfect, because no-one wants to be without their 4G speeds permanently, but it could save you some hassle and frustration for a while. ;)

    I'd like to get a check in the mail from Moto and VZW for beta testing their flaky phones and 4G network. Or at the very least some sort of thank you!

    Surprising and disappointing that the RAZR has this issue considering the Bionic had (still has for most people) an identical issue which was fixed in the maintenance release they're about to push out (I have it installed and it works flawlessly now). Why they would launch a flagship device with a major flaw that they're obviously able to fix is a mystery.

    Well that sucks.

    First time I've heard of the problem with the Razr, though considering the Bionic had these problems it doesn't surprise me.

    This fix doesn't help me

    I have no connection at all on 3G. My 4g seems ok, wifi works, but my 3g connection is completely f'ed. I'm exchanging my phone tonight for new one.

    This makes me a little skeptical about getting this phone, but it's not too late for the Nexus to come out and have problems either so we'll wait and see.

    It's not a total fix. I've been on CDMA only from the start (Saturday) and still managed to drop data once. But that was the only time - that I know of ;). Other than that it's been great, and I haven't had a problem with battery life.

    This isn't a fix. If my Corvette keeps stalling, unplugging 6 of the 8 spark plug wires is not a solution.

    One of the main reasons to get this phone is 4G. To disable that defeats the purpose. Why would you even consider accepting that as a "solution"??

    Luckily, mine works fine, else it would be going back.

    My razr holds data perfectly .... I did notice when I first activated the phone it wasn't acting right but I guess it was figuring everything out

    Sent from my DROID RAZR using DroidForums

    I'm feeling pretty fortunate. Both 3G and 4G work just fine on my Razr. I get pretty good battery life using JuiceDefender, easily getting through a day with moderate data and voice use. My company is addicted to Conference Calls and I'm a remote employee. I love my Razr.

    At least moto working on a fix quickly. When the thunderbolt came with all sorts of battery issues and reboots, took them a while. Thanks to our lovely developers who helped us with those issues :icon_ banana:
