    Outrageous how horrid the service is. Razr is essentially a 3G phone. Ughhh!!!

    It probably has more to do with the service in your area. Here in Phoenix, AZ the 4G in pretty solid. You will double your battery life by using it as a 3G device. :icon_ banana:

    It seems to be hit or miss. I really have no 4G issues and from reading some other threads, it seems to be 50/50. The good news is that the new update coming fixes the 4G issues. Phandroid posted an article about it and the results from those that have it already have said that the Razr now connects better than any other 4G phone (their words, not mine).

    Here in North Charleston that sounds good Androidatic. Love the phone but this is frustrating.

    Wasn't the December update supposed to resolve these issues? I hope you're right, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I'm thinking its not so much the 4g in the phone but the actual tower. I used to have problems too then one day no more problems finding a 4g signal. And yes i had problems after the update, but its good now.

    Wait a minute, I had joined the the wifi network at my doctors' office when I made those downloads in Plano, and I've been using wifi
    around the house because i work from home. So let me scratch that, I have not tested 4g in Plano/Dallas. Sorry bud, I made a mistake.

    To each his own. When I have 4G service, the speeds are incredible. I have actually resorted to using 4G in certain rooms in my house (far from the wireless router) because it is so much faster and more reliable than my wifi. I get marginal at best wifi in my living room, and for the past month my Razr has provided the internet connection for streaming Netflix on my Xbox and playing Xbox live.

    However, I will say that I have an issue with the inability of 4G and 3G to play nicely together (not Razr specific, just the network in general). When I am in an area with spotty 4G coverage, rather than simply switching to 3G, the connection will typically drop altogether and I am required to manually disable LTE. Fortunately this is rare because the greater Seattle area is well covered by 4G, but if there is anything to complain about, this would be it.
