    So i called Verizon explaining my data connection problems with my Bionic. I was trying to tell them ever since the .905 update my data has been dropping consistently. I already had a replacement bionic for a cracked screen and told them i did a factory reset already. They tried offering me the Razr but i refused i wanted the Nexus instead. So know there going to investigate the situation in my area supposedly. I don't think these idiots understand its a software issue. Basically i am stuck with these data issues unless the ICS update comes soon. I have a friend though who works with Verizon and hooked it up when my screen cracked. (i didnt pay a deducible) Should i just ask him to send me a nexus instead?

    You could just upgrade to ics. No data drops since I've been on it.

    my experience with the nexus if your dropping data now just wait. that is why mine sits in dresser drawer. they are great phones if you live in a strong signal area. .. just keep calling verzion they may eventually give in

    I think he means that he's on ICS and has no data problems, while his wife, who's still on .905, is.

    I would recommend trying out one of the ICS leaks (232 specifically so you can go back to GB if you need to) before wasting any more time fighting with VZW to send you something else. ICS on the Bionic is truly like having a totally different phone.

    Give it a shot, You won't be disappointed, or if for whatever reason you are disappointed, then you just fxz back to 905 and then give VZW hell about getting a new phone.

    I agree with the above. Data was horrible on 905, but very solid on 232.

    I just recently FXZ'd back to. 905 in anticipation for the OTA and my data immediately started derping off like before. I always had a hunch it was software based even on .902. Thats why i stuck with it. Now i feel its pointless to wait for an OTA if my data wont stay on long enough to download it Most Verizon reps are less knowledge than someone who's come on here and read even just one post. Persistence and escalating to the right people are key in getting what you need through Verizon. Don't even bother with a store, just call 611 and get escalated to tech support. I guess back to .232 for me

    .235 or even. 238 are smoother than whipped butter. Sam is the man for. 238
