    Im pretty sure this is a known issue but this is ridiculous now. No matter where i go i have either extremely poor or no 3g service at all. What in gods name is wrong with this phone. Add that to my battery only lasting 6 hours a day with NO use. Should i take it back? I updated the cell towers by the way.

    Well I am on number 4 and 3g has sucked on all of them. All have signal fluctuation. Also I have had one with unresponsive screen, locking up and restarting on its own. This phone is just very buggy.

    All I can add is that my 3G signal is great. I've only seen it go down to 1X once or twice.

    From my experience incredible was much worse. It dropped calls where i usually had full bars, it's a known issue.

    I will go to verizon and get a new one. No reason my phone should be this buggy.

    Strange indeed. You did *228 option 1 and 2 right? Explain it to verizon, I bet they will work with you for a different phone.

    I would try that out since it sounds like you're having some of the known problems that call for the need for a replacement. Plus, you're still within your 30 day window so you SHOULD get a brand new device instead of a refurb (if they're even doing refurbs yet).

    Yes return it. Had a BB Storm 1 and Tour. Both had excellent cell service. Incredible was so so. X is every bit as good as BB. No problems with X.

    Unfortunately they are, so OP, make sure they send you one in original packaging.

    Yeah LOTS of bugs with the X, the continued lag and freeze ups is extremely frustrating...

    I have a Storm 1 and a DX sitting side by side right now on my desk. The Storm 1 shows 1XEV (3G) with NO BARS... very weak signal... and the DX shows 3G (1XEV) with 2 bars. It has been my experience that the DX has just as good, and in most cases better, service than the BlackBerry.

    How are you able to tell me which phone gave me better voice and data coverage? My BB was solid as a rock as far as coverage was concerned. If this droid didn't have wifi id barely ever be able to go online or receive emails. I've also been dropping calls lately.

    Have you tried a Factory Reset? I was having problem with my GPS so I did a factory reset and since then the GPS works great, battery life is better, and it seems to have better coverage.

    omg my service is bad. I travel the USA every day and my service is so good. I mean if my X was so bad I would not been able to download 6.2gb of data last month. I can't believe I used that much data. My storm, droid, or dinc never got that close.

    I read somewhere that a factory reset could hurt this phone (I believe I read it here). Is this true? Because I'm strongly considering this. (I'd love to wipe out all the twitter and facebook crap in my contacts list too, so this would be a way to do it)
