Last couple of days I've had some strange connection issues on my new Revolution.
Some apps will not communicate with the network unless I'm connected via WIFI. Those apps that I've found so far are:
and Astronomy Picture.
None of them will work over 4G or 3G for that matter.
I'f I'm wifi connected all is good. Anyone else care to test this?
I was in the VZW store today and checked Quadrant on both a TB and Droid Charge. The demo TB, and Demo Revolution both failed to connect. the Droid Charge however had no problem connecting and downloading the results.
Kind of strange. The sales clerk suggested I call tech support.

4G LTE phones and routing
There seems to be some funny business with how certain traffic is routed on 4G LTE devices that is different than non LTE (like OG Droid and many other "standard" 3G devices). In your case, it is somewhat the opposite of what they appear to be doing with any sites they assume are "email providers" (where they are forcing traffic over Verizon data connection and refuse to allow wifi). In my case, it confuses certain apps who, I believe, are expecting to travel over the active wifi network connection and are redirected..causing them to timeout, hang, etc.
In your case, it seems like certain traffic on the mobile network is being either mis-routed or blocked and the only way your app works is when you have wifi and are not being "interrupted" by whatever LTE craziness they are doing with network routing.

I went to the VZW store last night and also decided to check if it was just me or if other 4G phones were affected as well.
The TB and Revolutions on display also had the issue. Strangely however the Droid Charge ran it just fine and had no problems.
I also spoke with Tech support this morning and they had no known network problems. They tried to duplicate to issue but could not find quadratic in the market. He said astronomy picture ran fine.

I've been noticing that my Revolution stays connected to 3g and/or 4g even when connected to wifi. This is a concern of mine because of extending battery life in areas with poor data signals on 4g and/it 3g. Even when I turn off my mobile data, it still stays connected. Is this an issue with all revolutions or just mine? I'm still within my time to get a new one. Any thoughts?
