    Got a summer home in Wi was also on an extender they work really well keep your phone cdma only. You may also want to use Juice Defender because the phone is always searching for signal bad battery.

    Ok, so i love the phone defiantly an awesome peace of technology yet i know it has its problems.
    Besides all that i been seeing lately under the battery management area that certain apps or programs like "google maps" and my "capital one" app have been having high percentages in battery usage...for example my capital one app was using 94% of my battery and i havent even touched the app yet. Or google maps which was using 50%.
    Needless to say i deleted the capital one app for now because even if i force stopped the app it would still say 94%
    So my question is....is it the phone and one of its many issues or the app?
    Anyone that maybe seen this before or have any tips that would be great!
    Thank you

    I did have that problem...for some reason apparently like youtube and google maps were listed as "not installed" but when I went in there it said there was an update...plus I might have wiped stored data a few times for the market...Idk if that'll help but I have found it didn't hurt xD

    If the Bionic was working like it should there would be no decision I just came back from verizon and tried one out my Bionic worked perfect. Butit always does in solid 4g its switching that is the problem. Personally I just like the feel of the Bionic better. The Razr worked perfect also up load and download speeds were the same that is a concern for me. So if you got the Razr snd are happy with it go for it

    I love my bionic! Upgraded from a fascinate which I had problems with ever since the froyo update. The bionic is very fast and you can print and retrieve from your computer which were the key selling points for me. Not sure the differences between the bionic and the razr other than I know you can't pull the battery on the razr(don't think I would like that!] The only gripe I have is the camera which is rumored to be fixed in the next update, and I wish it was louder on the cardock

    I would go aheyad and try Petes deal. The new OTA is supposedto come out any time now and you know if it does its gonna break root. So your best bet is to root and do forever root so if it does come you wont loose root. Thats why I asked about firmware if ts different you may not be able to root. So if you can do it
