Joey, how do you know this?

 

I'm probably the last guy to ask since I gave up on my Bionic already, but I find your claims that the Bionic "can't be fixed" to be of a dubious nature. But for those that are holding out hope, please state how you know this. We aren't talking about the time frame, just your claim in general.

Who are u saving by returning it joey? this phone isent as bad off then the thunderbolt. U can't say that isent true. Doesent even gave gingerbread and might not get ics. It isent a bug deal if it worked. I love bionic better. The person who bought the phone obviously needed a phone. Any phone can be saved especially a keyboard issue. They just fixed Droid x with an update.

Or any issue can be resolved. But no data is bad.

Ok, so it's not just me. I'm in Maryland and yesterday I got a connection error. The first time it happened, I just closed the browser and then opened it again and was fine. The second time, I had to power off and then back on to restore connection to the internet. At least I know it's not my specific phone. Hopefully this rumored update in November will do the trick!

I'm in Northern Cali, and i haven't had a data connection for 24 hours now.  I've reset the phone, removed the battery, did the whole airplane mode thing.. NOTHING is working...  I'm about ready to take this phone back, and expect a FULL REFUND.  YOu guys shouldn't release phones before they are ready to with these types of issues.  This issue and the missing apps issue, are two very fustrating issues with this phone.  Which really makes me NOT want to deal with the phone at all...

Re: DROID Bionic No Data Connection

Same here with connectivity.

 

Have to employ all kinds of tricks just to get the Gs (3G, 4G).

And the phone switches between 4G and 3G, in between I have no connectivity (happens exactly when I need to know some info).

Who has time in the car when looking for traffic information to reboot the phone or start playing with airplane mode etc.

 

I complained at the store, they sent me a replacement. I could reproduce this with the replacement on day one.

I meant it can't be fixed now. If it could we would not be complaining. We have a dubious promise of a future fix, they dont' know if that will work because they don't know if it is software or hardware. If you are still in the time frame to return this phone, why would you want to keep it?

For me it is not only Annoying but has other potential fall out. I need to either have someone read results to me or I get them in an email that most of the time when I need it doesn't come up unless on Wi Fi.

Loss of 3 and 4g is really a big problem when you depend on your phone for more than a toy. Honestly it is mostly a toy now since I can't depend on VZW to deliever a reliable device or signal. Now with loosing the phone signal it is really getting bad. This is my 3rd phone and simm.

I've been having the same problem (in the Dallas area); it happens both in 3G and 4G modes.  My house is in a low spot for 4G so I thought it was related to that.  However, it's been happening a lot over the past few days and it's making me crazy!!  I've been reading that many people are having the same problem, and not necessarily just Bionic owners.  Haven't called in yet but it's on my list of things to do.

I can't get data in my house either, and i amin a strong 4G area. In my original Droid, it was never a problem.  If I did not have WiFi, this would not be a data phone. I hate it.
