Until the RAZR / Rez / Nexus was released it was perfectly fine. Once all of this Christmas congestion eases up then it will be back to normal.

Yeah like 2 in 9 months. My Droid Charge lost 4G LTE like one or two times MAYBE in 7 months.

Wow, so far no reported issues for AT&T and 4G LTE. I have the DROID RAZR, but have only experienced 3G - been very reliable, but I prefer WiFi, as it is faster. Still looking forward to 4G LTE, and may have to upgrade to 50.0/10GB when that happens.

In terms of coverage, with any carrier, it depends on where you live, and if you have a phone that is not defective.

Down in Dover DE. 3G went down for a while even on my Bionic, but it's back up now...sort of. It's hard to tell with the building I work in. I did a battery pull and walked outside and 3g came back up. I am getting tired of VZW "most reliable network" tagline. It's been horrible since I've gotten this phone...
