    The most reliable network hasn't been acting very reliable.

    Couldn't access the net for over an hour, thought it was my phone. Tried calling tech support and they weren't reliable either since they were closed.

    Anyone else have this problem in the wee hours of the morning? Sleep isn't a luxury for me so, I rely on Verizon to keep me entertained. (Starting to hate the word R E L I A B L E)

    Just wondering...

    Verizon is in the midst of tweaking and adding new 4G LTE sites. We are bound to experience some outages while this is going on. I would not worry about it, in the end, it's only going to provide an even more reliable and stable service for us all.

    They do routine updates in the middle of the night/early morning. Us zombies have to deal with it. Also with 4G rolling out country wide, it will effect many users,good and bad.

    Reliable

    I've had good luck with there service, but not sure about there phones. There phones are really cool when they work the right way. I've had problems with all of my Verizon phones. I'm on my second Droid X2 and still having some problems. I just deal with it because I think there network and customer service are the best. It's a Love hate relationship I guess. I had At+t for five years. Verizon's customer service and network is 100 times better.

    Phone issues are manufacturer problems. VZW has no control over product manufacturing.

    Manufacturer

    Phone issues are the Manufacturer, but the carrier decides what makes and models to carry. You would think they would want a reliable phone for their reliable network. :droideris:

    There are essentially 3 manufacturers for all carriers: Motorola, HTC, Samsung. Not much to choose from.

    There's LG too if you want to count them, but maybe they don't count since I know the two LG phones that I've had with VZW were really bad. I know they make good industrial A/C units though.
    Sure it isn't very many, but I don't think they have to carry a phone they make if it isn't quality, while still keeping the manufacturer.

    Ya but we essentially get the same phone on all networks just different names and minor changes. Hardware is pretty much the same. The atrix and bionic are similar, the d2, d3, and x have the same basic hardware. Those are just a few off the top of my head. The manufacturing process is the same across the line. I'm sure they don't just make phones for one carrier in one factory, another factory for another carrier, etc. All phones, no matter the carrier are probably made in the same factory.

    The Samsung Galaxy phones are pretty sweet. Don't really see anything similar for Verizon yet. I do know Samsung is making a new 4g Smartphone for Verizon that's suppose to be out pretty soon.:motdroidvert:
