My Droid Bionic is probably the worst phone I have ever had. The battery is terrible, lasting only about 3-4 hours. I purchased the extended battery; thank you for that extra hour after spending nearly $40 for the extended battery. It is also very slow when trying to go from inactive to active, but my favorite (please hear my sarcasm when I say favorite) is when it turns itself off while I am in the middle of a call, a reminder, a text, you name it. WOW!! and I still have more than a year left on my contract. Any suggestions???
You could try a system cache clear; shouldn't erase any of your data. You could purchase a phone off ebay or swappa or somewhere until you're eligible for an upgrade. Verizon also has their Certified Pre-Owned Replacement Program:
System cache clear:
Power down phone
Hold volume up/down & power simultaneously
Use volume down to navigate to 'Recovery', use volume up to select
Should see screen with triangle and exclamation point next to an Android
Press volume up/down simultaneously
Use volume rocker to navigate to 'wipe cache' and use power button to select
Once finished, use volume rocker to navigate to 'reboot system now' and use power button to select
Hearing about the problems with your Bionic truly saddens me, tglenn1025! Based on the depth of the problems encountered, I would suggest completing a master reset. I understand that this can be a slightly painful and time consuming task, but it resolves so many issues.

This would be my 3rd reset. I will pass on the re-re-reset and get an upgrade by transferring my hotspot upgrade to my phone. Thanks anyway.
