    Mine is doing the same thing. I'm already on my second RAZR because of this. I called Verizon and did everything that the tech suggested and in the end they just sent me a new phone. He even said that he had no idea what the problem could be. Suggested I go through and reset my router even though every other wireless device in my house works perfectly.

    It really is. This "new" phone is now doing the same thing. I live in a dead zone so I need to have it on when home. Everything else in my house (laptops, ipad and even other verizon phones) that are connected to it have no problems whatsoever.

    well i think it might be software related, because i was on ventrilo on the phone and the wifi dropped again, but the verizon connection stays maintained, something tells me theres a setting in the software that has a set data threshold limit for wifi and when an app or the phone oversteps the limit the wifi crashes

    Have you updated the router software?

    I had this issue, changing my wifi router settings so it broadcasts on Channel 1 seems to improve stability greatly for me.

    I thought it was my router and I was always resetting it....
