Is anyone else having network connection issues on their N4 after the lollipop update? At home, my 4G signal drops from 2-4 bars. At work it's the worse. It bounces from 4G, to 3G, and EVDO. It's never done that before until after the update. I turned on my wifi to help with keeping a stable signal, but that doesn't help. It keeps dropping my wifi and tries to switch back to the verizon network and starts switching through the different signals. In the meantime it my phone stops receiving a signal, so trying to stream music is almost useless as it pauses to buffer waiting for a signal.

I'm still having data connections. It's getting a bit beyond annoying now. Having one of the best phones on the "nations fastest" network doesn't do any good if you don't have a connection. Right now I can't even connect to 3G or 4G.
The issue began immediately after receiving the OTA update from kitkat to lollipop. I didn't have any data connection issues until the software update. Since the upgrade is when it became unstable. I've tried going through the troubleshooting process including a factory reset.
What happens when you go into Settings | Mobile Networks | System Select | Network Mode, and change from Global to LTE/CDMA?
Also, turn off Smart Switch. If your WiFi is weak, do you really want the phone reverting to sending data over the cellular network?
I tried limiting my network mode to just LTE/CDMA yesterday. I completely lose my connection rather than switching to 1X now.
I have the smart switch off, because my data streaming (music stream) kept getting interrupted even more then it was when it was bouncing between the cellular networks. adding wifi to the mix just added one more cycle for my data connection. Running purely cellular data isn't a concern. I simply want a stable connection.
