Sally were you talking about enabling the data in the phone settings? If so it is enabled.  Still nothing.

Yes, in the Menu settings of the phone, not the JD app.  

  1. Am I understanding you that in the JD app, under Status>Profile  do you have 'balanced' selected and have done no other tweaking? 
  2. When you have it set like that, and are not connected to wifi, do you have a 3g/4g icon in your notification bar?
  3. What color is it?  
  4. Is this problem only with 3g/4g or if you are on wifi do you have the same problem?
  5. I'm also wondering if you have this problem at home or if it was just at the oral surgery place?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm trying to make sense of it.

Thanks for Your help ...I don't wanna call tech support, they will probably send me a CPO phone, I paid so much for mine, I'd like a brand new one instead ...n on mine when I tap on the screen it just doesn't do anything @ times ...thanks for everyone's support. Have a great day!

Do a factory reset then - you've got nothing to lose.

1. Yes, it is set to balanced.

2. No there is no 3g 4g icon in the notification tray.

3. There isn't one...so no color.

4. Don't think it is just the 3g or 4g, there is just not a connection.

5. No, I'm at home and the same thing is happening.

I think I'll go check the advanced setting and see if I can just keep the data enabled all the time.  Don't know if that is an option, but will check! I know that will lessen the length of the battery, but what good is the battery if you can't use the phone as it was designed to be used!!??  LOL I may just have to uninstall it!

This is making no sense to me and you might end up having to follow up with JD about this.  But first I'd like you to uninstall it, turn off your phone, turn it back on and then reinstall JD, selecting 'balance' and nothing else.  If it still means you have no wifi or data unless you disable it, then go to the Help tab, scroll down to Mobile data AutoFix and enable it.

If that does fix it, notify JD and if it doesn't you still need to contact JD because something screwy's going on that is beyond my ability to test. 

Let us know what happens.

Be sure you uninstall both JD and the Ultimate.  Then install JD, then the Ultimate.

the incredible was TRULY incredible. that was my first smartphone and it blew my mind.

i'm no expert and this is all just my opinion, but smashogre's post is spot on. no task killer for me. period. use wifi at home and the office. only enable 4g/LTE when i'm streaming video or downloading large files and wifi isn't available. i use an app called timeriffic (that sounds similar to smart actions). i can use the app to automatically turn wifi on when i get home and off when i leave.....and then the same when i come and go from the office. it also disables all radios at 1 am and turns them back on at 6 am (my wife is the only possible person that would need to get a hold of me in the middle of the night and since she is next to me, i simply don't need the radios draining the battery all night/morning). i have the tbolt with the rezound's battery (1620mah) and it is a battery hog....but i EASILY get a full day on one charge and consider myself a fairly heavy user.

i haven't seen in this thread any discussion about actual use time. if you really want to guage the battery life, you should start checking the "uptime" and the "actual or real uptime." i'm not familiar with the razor, but with most most devices, you can check out the uptime (the amount of time that you have actually been using the device) and the awake time or real uptime (the actual amount of time it has been turned on since the last time you powered down or rebooted). i charge my device completely and then immediately reboot it. i will get right around 3 hours (a bit more) of real uptime (actual use) and 20-30 hours of idle/uptime/standby.....whatever you want to call it.

of course, if i turn it on and immediatley stream a movie that's 2 hours long, then i will have a real hard time getting through the day so it depends on how you use your device. my point is that if you are an average user that texts, calls, browses, etc, etc randomly throughout the day, then you should expect to get about 3 hours of that actual use and should have enough battery for it to idle the rest of the day. (elixir has a nice battery stat part to the app. it also is a great app in general).
