    Default Potential Data Drop Fix

    I've been having the data drop issues that many people have, most noticable on FB, but also happened on other apps that use data (Foursquare, Dolphin, etc). Per a recent XDA thread suggestion, I uninstalled FB completely, and it appears to have improved my data drop issues significantly. Now using Fast for FB as my FB app.

    Could be wishful thinking since it's still too early to really say, but others might have success with this.

    I doubt the Facebook app is the cause. It could exacerbate the issue though. Myself, I've never had it installed and still occasionally experience the data drop issue. When it does occur, it's never specific to any app, just happens regardless of what I'm doing on the phone.

    Yeah, I don't even have Facebook on my phone, never have. Maybe it fixed your problem though. Hope Verizon soon fixes mine.

    I have had simiiar issues with Facebook. Installed the data toggle app. Move to 3G when this happens and able to access much more quickly.

    This may sound like wishful thinking, or some magical fix, but I noticed that when I had wifi on but not even connected to a network, still using 4g data, the connectivity was great. Once I turned wifi off I started having the drop issues again. So to test my theory I have kept wifi on this week but never connected to any wifi networks...my phone HAS NOT dropped 4g connectivity even one time this week. Call me crazy,...give it a try and get back at me so I can gauge my sanity.

    I recently changed to a tiered data plan so I started using wifi. Soon after I started having data drop issues. I think you hit the nail on the head because if I turn off wifi, 4g comes and goes like crazy. I decided to just leave wifi on and now i have no data droppage at all. Its just like old times.

    Didn't help me, still get the occasional bout of random data drops. Wonder what effect though leaving Wi-Fi on all the time could have on battery life as I noticed it's constantly scanning for Wi-Fi networks to connect to.
