Have you tried resetting your SIM card?  Turn off the phone, remove the SIM card (be careful not to touch the gold contacts), wait a few minutes, then reinsert the SIM card, turn on the phone, and allow it a few minutes to establish a fresh network connection.  If that doesn't work, you might try a new SIM card, they're free at your local Corporate Verizon store.

I had the same problem with my phone. I changed two sim cards and didn't help . Verizon ended up sending me another refurbished phone that happened to be better. Some refurbished phones are worse than the one you have, sometimes. I have more of a stable signal now.

Customer service is very understanding.
