So after a quick browse of these forums I'm seeing that tons of people are having this issue, but I just thought I'd share my story in the hope that MAYBE Verizon will recognize this issue and take a more pro-active approach than "I dunno, maybe there will be an update. . ." which is the response I get from their employees in the store. So here we go. . .
I, like so many others it seems, initially loved my Droid DNA to the point where I believed it was the best phone I'd ever purchased. Good battery life, phenomenal screen, speedy browsing and downloading, what's not to love, right? Well after about 3-4 months of owning my phone, (I purchased it in January) I noticed that every once in awhile it would not recognize the SIM card. Now I am not somebody who freaks out over every little thing so I thought, no big deal, just pop out the SIM card, give it a clean, and restart the phone and everything will be cool right? This worked for me for a little while and the occurrences of this happening were so few and far between at the time, I really didn't mind having to do it, because I loved my DNA. Now it the past 2-3 weeks this issue has escalated immensely an it has been driving me CRAZY. I would say 1 out of 2 calls I place are dropped due to my phone not recognizing my SIM card mid-call! So today, after 3 dropped calls, I drove to my local Verizon store to have a little chat about this issue. Now, knowing that this is a common problem for DNA owners, I was ready to go in and demand that I get a new phone (After all this would be consider a manufactures defect according to Verizon itself) but being the reasonable guy that I am, I let the guy there replace my SIM card for a brand new one instead. As I'm driving home I call up my girlfriend and let her know that there will be no more dropped calls, therefore no reason for her to believe that I am hanging up on her mid-conversation, so she doesn't have to break up with me now . I pull into the driveway, put the car in park, and what do I hear but that dreaded beep. The phone DROPPED THE CALL.
Needless to say, I am very unhappy about this situation. Multiple Verizon employees have recognized to me the fact that this is a known issue, but none of them seem to know when it will be fixed, if ever. Now my experiences with Verizon in the past have been pretty good and they generally are able to help me with any problems I experience, but this is just ridiculous. I ask that anyone who owns a Droid DNA and is having similar issues please, PLEASE post something in this thread about there experiences with their Droid DNA so that maybe Verizon will recognize that this is a MAJOR issue and that they should do something about it before loyal Verizon customers, such as myself, get fed up with this and start to look at other providers.
P.S. I also find it very ironic that the Droid DNA has no sub-forum of it's own, even though much older models do. Could this be because they don't want people to discussing this issue?
