    Default Verizon 4G Data Drops In SoCal Phone Or Network?

    So, the title kind of says it all. I'm curious if the 4G data drops I'm experiencing are my bionic or the Verizon network in SoCal.
    I'm trying to figure out if I should get my third bionic, wait for the Galaxy S3 on Verizon, or get one on T-Mobile. I know some people can't stand T-Mobile but when my data drops all over L.A. and Orange counties it's gone past annoying. Thoughts?

    If you're dropping 4G everywhere, then it sounds like to me it's related to your phone or SIM. I was there last summer, and I didn't have the experience you had. The only time I lost 4G (other than transitioning into 3G zones) was when I went to Comic-Con in San Diego last July (but I was indoors, and signal wasn't the strongest -- probably due to traffic during the day). I will be back in SoCal next month, so I'll know if the network works the same or differently.

    I can't say anything about now, since I'm not there at the moment.

    My experience her in Ohio is it looks like the network. I have had three different brands of phones and ALL of them had data connectivity problems. Hard to believe three different types of phones would all have problems. In the EXACT SAME LOCATION the data rate varies all over the place.

    The only major place I've found to have poor Verizon coverage in SoCal is Disneyland.

    Downtown Disney is fine. Disney California Adventure is fine. But Disneyland has horrible reception for me.

    I've been to crowded events at the Staples Center (Lakers game), Honda Center (WWE RAW), and the Anaheim Convention Center (WonderCon) and data coverage was just excellent.

    This is not related to your area, but I'm having many issues with my Razr in Michigan. A few others in that forum have been talking about it, and here is the link to that thread.

    4G all but unuseable

    I'm new to 4g and cant believe that this is normal in anyway. So either we all have similar issues, or something is going on with the network.

    By the way, I'm no expert at all, but someone did have an explanation to why they thought we were all dropping data like we are. Worth a read.

    It's more than likely phone related. My Bionic drops its 4G signal.
