Only getting 1x and spotty 3g coverage in Las Vegas

Its been like this for a 3-4 days. I have the OTA update and I get 1x and when I do connect to 3g there is no up or down link.  I've restarted my phone, took out the sim and did a factory reset. Don't even get me started with 4g. I'm apparently in a 4g area but cant even get 3g. I also dropped 3 calls yesterday.( could have been the horrible overseas expedia support)

 

My girlfirend has the Droid X and it seems to  be doing the same thing

 

Will verizon expand their 4g coverage ever? I've been pretty dissapointed with the service/speed and coverage thus far. 

 

Are there network issues in SW Las Vegas? 

 

oh and besides not getting any data I'm getting the awful random reboots too.

I'm experiencing the exact same thing.  I've only had a random reboot once.  But, on top of what you expressed, I've also had horrible battery drain. 

 

I've toggled back and forth between CDMA auto and CDMAauto + LTE.  Go from 1X to 3G to 4G.  When I hit 4G, everything stops.  I can't run Pandora, browser or SpeedTest. 

 

I got on another forum and did the dial ##78# to reset the RevA to "enable" from eHRPD.  That was supposed to fix it.  It was working for a while.  My 4G was up and running.  I have 2 bars at my house and have been able to browse and run YouTube for a while...and then...nothing.

 

Something seriously bad has apparently happened to the radio with this past update.  I was buckled in for the battery issue. After all, I basically have a laptop as a phone.  But, this connectivity/radio issue is crap.

 

I called Verizon, who conferenced in a rep from HTC.  The HTC rep actually said that they had nothing to do with the update.  Obviously, that wasn't accurate.  So, I told the rep that I would do the hard reset and if that didn't work to my satsifaction they would need to send me a new phone.  She agreed.
