Emergency Calls Only and Low Signal

We have 2 of these Droid Maxx in the house.  They both show horrible 4G signal compared to any of our other phones. Quite a few times, they switch to 1X for data.  Again, other phones are not showing this while these do it.

Secondly, one of them also periodically goes to "Emergency Calls Only" mode after a restart.  It takes another restart or 2 to get it to work again. 

I don't think these are both related, but mentioning them together anyway.  Any thoughts or things to try?

Hi DevItHere,

Let's see what's causing the problem! When did the issue begin? What is your current zip code? Do you experience the issue in and out doors? Have you recently downloaded any new applications? I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks for your contribution to our community forums,
