Update has completely ruined Droid Razr Maxx Hd

As stated I have a droid razr maxx hd and ever since the kit kat update my phone has been close to useless. I have browsed the forum and seen multiple complaints and proposed solutions to the problems like mine and I have tried them and none have worked. My wifi signal reception is half as good and no changes have been made to the home wifi setttings. Areas in town where I would have full 4g reception including at my home are now 3 bar 3g reception. I have been missing calls for work because the phone is constantly searching for signal and is in between 3g and 4g in areas that before were always max 4g. With wifi turned off, if I pass an open wifi spot the phone will lose all data connection until im out of reach of the wifi spot. The phone shuts down on its own and battery life has been cut in half with absolutely no changes since the update. No new apps no change in how frequent the phone is used. I have done the very harsh factory reset and re-installed apps and no luck. I feel like im out of options and don't know which direction to go because I've still got 5 months before im eligible for an upgrade and I don't think I should have to pay full price for a phone when I enjoyed the phone I had until this update was forced on me. The rep at the local store told me about a plan to pay for the phone monthly but Verizon would be making me pay another 20 bucks a month to buy a new phone that this update screwed up along with me GIVING them the phone I paid for. I don't want to leave Verizon as I liked their service before all of this happening but I cant see paying 600 for a new phone that I didn't tear up. Im almost at the end of my rope...any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also have had the same misfortune. I am appalled that I was forced into updating my phone to Kit Kat. My phone just randomly freezes, shuts down, reboots itself, and now I don't have the battery life that it used to have. I could normally leave my phone on for 2-3 days and now it just shuts itself off more than once a day.

It seems none of the "fixes", that have been suggested, work. I don't know about you but I also lost my Swype and this new app they had me download is not nearly as good!!!! Wasn't it Motorola that "forced" the update? ...not Verizon.  I know I had to call Motorola for any issues.

We need to have them change the phone back to its original programming... I wasn't asking for an update so why did they send them to all of our Razr Maxx HD phones? AGGRAVATING!!!

If you find out anything new please post it so that everyone can benefit from the knowledge.
