    Default HOX Reliability

    I've had my HOX since a month after launch (actually on my second one since the previous had issues), I came from 5 years of BlackBerry use and was used to, most of all, reliability. With my HOX, I feel like I'm constantly having issues holding a signal, receiving emails on time, etc. Anyone else have similar feelings? I think I've convinced myself to buy the Nexus 4 in hopes of gaining some of that reliable feeling back.

    I've had the bb pearl, curve, javelin, torch and tour. They were all reliable yeah. My HOX is no different though.

    You're issues seem service related. It happens. If you disagree, replace it and ask for an HT25 and up serial number.

    I don't understand what makes you think the LG is more reliable.....

    I also switched to the HOX from BlackBerry and have never looked back. No issues at all.

    My international HOX has had no problems holding a signal in weak areas.

    Even in areas where the homeowner couldn't hold a signal (aluminum siding house) I had no problem.
    Driving around in Upstate New York (pretty much the boon docks, by any definition) I would run out of
    AT&T Cell coverage, but so did every other phone in the car.

    When I go into a bad signal area and come back to good coverage, I'm able to call/text and have no data even though I show service. I've read that rooting and doing something with the modem helps this but I really hate that I have to do this.

    Also, I've noticed in good coverage areas, I'll lose service for no reason, prompting sometimes multiple restarts.

    I guess I'll try my luck with a nexus 4 and if I have issues, I'll wait for BB10. Really loving android so I hope I don't have to leave it behind.

    I get better coverage at home on my One X than I did with my other phones. Usually hovered between 1 bar and no service, but now maintaining 3, sometimes dipping to two, and rarely one. Had for two months. HT23 model.
