I'm wondering if I'm missing anything in terms of the signal working correctly/overall bugs. Evaluating the device for another week, because the VZ rep convinced me that there was no reason not to. Details are below. I didn't receive any replies on the 3G posting, so I'm posting again here. VZ sent a replacement device (but no SIM) for an issue with 3g/4g signal. Initially, my rezound wasn't picking up any 3g signal. After toggling back and forth last week, the device started rebooting and wouldn't stop. VZ's answer (it always is) was to perform a factory reset. Factory reset got the phone working again, but I lost all my settings (Maybe google services hadn't backed them up yet? I've had very little luck with google backups). In the mts this past weekend, I had 1x and 3g service but couldn't send messages or make calls. I could receive them, but could not send. I was standing next to someone with a VZ device that was receiving perfect signal. Once I returned to the city Sun, the messaging was working again, but not well. On Mon all of the failed messages were sent after I rebooted (I rebooted multiple times over the weekend). I was going to activate the new device today, but they didn't send a SIM card. I'm interested in others opinions on these issues as the support from VZ and HTC has been terrible. Is it possible that a device or SIM card issue could cause these problems or is it more like a (beta) 4g network problem? Is this HTC, or 4g devices in general? Will rooting and installing custom ROMs fix this, and will that void my warranty? I know HTC allows you to root, but VZ does not. I will try to continue to be a part of the forums, because I support Android at work, but I may have to make the switch to the darkside. I just can't take the lack of ownership/support for issues and flakiness as a tradeoff for having the abilty to customize.
