I downloaded the new 4.04 update, hoping it would fix the LTE connectivity issue. I turned LTE on in settings, I was able to browse for a minute then the connection dropped. No change from 4.02 to 4.04. The droid bionic I had before this phone had 4 bars 4g everywhere in my area but now I have to keep the phone on CDMA mode so I can make calls and to keep the battery from dying in 2 hours.
Not any consolation but Samsung devices are notorious for poor radio performance when compared to Motorola, HTC, etc. Motorola tends to have the best so that would explain why your Bionic would receive and maintain a more stable connection. Samsung really needs to start working on their radios.
The strange part is if i reboot the phone I will actually have 4g service for about a minute or two, then it will just drop. There is a verizon tower only a mile from my house so I should be getting full 4g.
I have the same issue. So have hundreds of others. I've gone through 4 replacements and all had the same issue. Good luck. Verizon needs to do something about this...
There are countless threads from users stating they have gone thru several Nexus phone and finally had Verizon swap it out for a Razr or Razr Maxx.
Sounds like a class-action suit. This is ridiculous. Then Verizon has the nerve to end the grandfathering of unlimited data?! Greed... When my contract is over I'll take my business elsewhere.
