    Do you know anyone with a non Samsung phone in your area? If so, do they have the same problem?

    All of my devices are having a problem. All samsung types. In new xlte area. Reception sucks. Talked to Verizon service guy and he said it is the way it is for now. New systems are crap.

    I heard of a lady in Florida who called Verizon and they sent her some sort of a signal booster for her home?

    Yep both of our Note 3's are getting dropped to 3G to 1x at times since the crap KK update. And we are currently in a large metro area, hate to see what happens when we aren't. Sad

    Huge signal and battery issues for many kitkat users on Verizon. I spoke with best buy geek squad and 2 different Samsung reps in east TN. Verizon blames Samsung but Sprint T mobile and att are all fine. The Samsung rep said they even pulled their ability to reload the verizon version of kitkat OS from their computers. Verizon approved a brand new replacement for me but sent me a recert instead. I called and had my contract date reset (after a little persuasion) and decided to go with the S5. I kept the refurbished unit with jellybean and sent back my phone with Kitkat. I'm actually using the note 3 now and debating selling the S5 on Ebay. I'm sure the issue lies within all the bloat ware Verizon insists on pre loading.

    I am having the same issue with note 3. I went to a Verizon store and they called tech support and checked number of dropped calls etc...said it wasn't a large amount. Restarted the phone in safe mode to see if any apps were the cause, but no difference. However, when I am standing next to an iPhone user, outdoors in a large park, and they can make calls and I get NO SERVICE, something is wrong. I'm sure it's not Verizon's network when both of us were on it at the same time. I hoped they might swap phones for me but no such luck. Stuck with crappy service and I too live in a large metro area, not out in the boonies.

    I am running the note 3, S5, and gnp12.2. All of which are getting horrible service. I can see the tower. Get full service outside. Go inside and the new xlte drops our to 1 bar or no service. Calling verizon today to drop service on gnp12.2 and another tablet since there is no to little signal to work with.

    You paid $800 for the Verizon note 3? Retail is $700.

    Same signal issues, just moved to a new workplace and the phone is unusable. Odin back to MJE helped a bit but calls and messages (forget about data) go through maybe 5% of the time. On my Note 2 I used to be able to send texts on 1 bar of 1X, not possible on the Note 3.

    The sad thing is my colleagues who have any non-Samsung phone get LTE or working 3G in the same area. Going to try for an M8 or if that doesn't work a 5S as all 5 of those around me have 1 bar LTE.

    Xlte uses the 2.1GHz frequency range. That frequency is poor for getting into biildings....whereas the original lte service is in the 700MHz band and far better at inside coverage.

    Well at least I don't feel quite so alone any longer. Note 3 stock on Verizon with KK. I'm greeted with this almost two dozen times per day. Note my signal strength indicator. And the "Safe Mode" icon. I've tried everything...on my third phone now.
