While it seems every body around us has the 4G. One thing to Note Do change the CDMA/LTE to Just CDMA..it can cause big time issues with phone if you change it. I have an kept mine since i Bought it on CDMA/LTE..b33
B33, thanks for all your information that you post. I live and work in a 4g area, and I have had the maxx for almost 3 weeks.
With regard to your comment, is it safe then to change from lte to wifi every night when I come home since you said that it's not good to switch from lte to CDMA ? So , what you are saying that it is better for the phone to do the switch by itself, rather than switch maually from lte to CDMA? Thanks for your your help. .....Freddie.
Yes it's a Natural switch From the Network to the Wi-Fi. An as for the info on the the CDMA/LTE switch. The first Day i Got my Maxx ! Before i Done anything with it. I called an Talked to Tier 2 Tech an asked Him Many Questions an the First thing that he Told Me Was to leave that Switch as is. He told me as we talked further on He said in our Training classes with Moto Techs the subject of leaving the cdma/lte as is was brought up many Times. And he also told me he owned a Maxx as Well And before i new it We had talked for 2 Hours But he Still stayed on the Phone an went threw the Programming with Me. I call that dedication an i wished there would've been more Like Him..

No the issue has not been resolved, on Friday 5-18-2012, I spoke to a
tech support person and we put the phone in safe mode to see if it
would drop all signal again, while on the phone of course it didn't.
An hour later we were on the road which we live (Road 756 Overton NE )
and the phone lost all signal, the tech told me that if the phone
loses signal while in safe mode it is the antenna in the phone, he was
to call me back on Monday 5-21-2012 between the hours of 2:30 -3:30
ET. Surprise no call, which is not uncommon... poor customer service,
spent over $200 on the phone and have had nothing but trouble since we
I would love for the tech engineers come down our road, sit in our
driveway and contact us when they are there we will show them
personally what the phone does and how poor our service is in our

With a trouble ticket we can most certainly get an engineer to come to the area to assess the situation.
It doesn't sound as though a ticket was submitted yet. That will be our next step.
I have sent you a direct message to request additional information from you.

Two times since I got my phone on 1/21/12, it did not connect to the network after a reboot. Both times I switched on airplane mode and immediately back off and within a few seconds, the phone connected to the 4G network. Also, I leave WIFI on whenever I am home or somewhere I know I want to connect to a WIFI signal. However, when driving around in the car, I usually turn off the WIFI (if I think about it), so the phone isn't constantly looking for a WIFI signal. I don't know for sure, but I assume this saves on battery power.
Actually, I'm not entirely surprised to hear of difficulties with the data connection on your DROID Razr in your area (Overton, NE). That is old Alltel country and I have had similar experiences near Genoa, NE, Stanton and Boone County, Nebraska. Those hills and valleys create some very near to dead spots of coverage. I haven't seen the dreaded "No Service" on either my Thunderbolt or the Galaxy Nexus thankfully, but they were close to there. The AT&T phone on the other hand saw many dead spots and it was even roaming on a partner carrier!
