    OK, got my TB about a month ago, worked great for about 4 days...absolutely loved it.
    data started to drop out
    flashed MR2, no fix
    rooted and ROM'd - no fix
    returned to stock- no fix
    new sim Card - no fix
    new phone- FIX
    worked great for 2 days
    went to root it - auto root process failed while pushing RUU, so root failed S-ON and all that stuff.
    immediatly lost 4G and had terrible reboots after the failed Root (rooted successfully using same files from before)
    went to Michigan in a 3G area - all was well
    Reboots and no data in 4G area
    when data is on i get 4G icon, but no data downloading and no sending/rec calls/texts
    if i turn data off, i can send/rec calls/texts, but when i hang up on someone, is says "call ended" but status bar still shows a call and glows green and i can hear them on the other end still
    rebooting phone makes data work for roughly 2 minutes, then it stops (still have 4G icon tho)
    i have the latest OTA - no fix
    new sim card- no fix
    2 hours at VZW store - no fix
    VZW sending me a new TB. got offered a revolution or a charge. still want my TB b/c it is simply a better phone when it works.
    hopefully the new TB will work fine, it is going to stay stock this time and see if i have any more issues

    love this phone, but it is driving me CRAZY

    Hey, when verizon sends you the replacement phone 1.Do you have to return your old one and 2.Does your upgrade eligibility date resets itself? I got a droid X sent to me to resolve the reboots issue and I didn't have to send my phone in but I just checked my account and my upgrade date has been reset. Curious if I should call verizon.

    That's a pretty crazy story, I've been through 2 others before my current one, and so far I've had this baby for around 2 months now? But it's been working pretty good so no complains thus far. Honestly the only thing that turns me off about the phone is its shape...I like square-ish phones lol

    Yea, you have to send in the old one back. You can switch the batteries around if you want/need, but you do have to send back the phone.
