    Just recently 4g was turned on in my town and the first day was awesome. Now a few days later I only get 2 bars of 4g and if I start to watch YouTube or crackle or such I will drop 4g and it switches to 3g but my wife's thundrbolt will keep a full strength 4g no matter what she does. Also my phone will only charge to 100% lately if the phone is off like something is consonantly draining it even when charging. I'm on the 215 leak and am wondering if a fdr might help or if I should fast boot back to the ota ics?

    You may need a new SIM card. Your local Verizon store should have them.

    I've noticed mine does the same thing...quickly switches from 4g to 3g at times. Not sure why the difference between the Tbolt and our Razrs.

    Jaye, That's an interesting point about the making sure that the SIM card matches the plan. That's the great thing about these forums: I learn something every day.

    Wow I went into Verizon on sat and the amazing employees there wouldn't give me a new card and said any trouble shooting has to be called in........ they also seemed confused when I told them I already did an fdr . I ended up doing another today since my texts stopped sending but it seems ok for now my 4g seems a bit stronger I just need to call I guess to try a new SIM but I'll get to that eventually lol thanks for all the suggestions
