    I had some data drop issues on my Razr prior to the .173 update, but since updating - no issues with data drops. Are you thinking about switching to a Razr or Maxx?

    My RazR has been loosing all connections-no 4g or 3g-in common areas(closer to the city) that have never had any problems with service and are known for have the 4g-but when I am at home, and I live far out in the sticks(well sorta) I am able to get 4g all the time, even thou we wasn't suppost to be able to get it...but anyways- I called Verizon and found out that it was because I didn't have the newest update..thou I though I had...guess not.... because my phone wouldn't update, and some other issues with the phone they are replacing it....I got lucky with which customer service I got, in Iowa, they talk to you like they've known you for ever...but then again, my husband says the same about me...

    I live on the fringe of 4g and I don't even have a problem with hand-off to 3g. No complaints on the stability of the Razr. I would buy another one tomorrow.

    Another advocate for the .173 update, I live in Austin and my connection has been great since that update. So good in fact I leave it in CDMA/LTE mode all the time now, where as before I kept it CDMA only because of battery drain. My 4G stays strong pretty much everywhere I have gone, and the hand off between the two has been great as well.

    still have connection issue, but I don't think it has anything to do with the phone. I think Verizon just try expanding its 4G coverages that I been having issues with 3G and 4G as well. Because the phone always searching for data, it drains the battery quite alot.

    Same here - darn near perfect since the latest OTA. My phone locks on 4G (where available) now and rarely drops back to 3G. And when it does, the transition is seamless. The difference is night and day. Motorola got it right!! :biggrin:
