    My issue is I cannot get a 4G signal anywhere in or around my house. My work supplied me with a Pantech Verizon 4G USB modem and I get 4G on that so I have to think it's my phone. I'm also shown as being in Verizon's 4G coverage area. When I first purchased my SGN last week I was away from home and was getting good 4G coverage. If it is only in and around my home no big deal as I have wireless. The strange part is when I have wireless on I show a weak 4G signal (-103db) but as soon as I turn wireless off, The best I get is a -85db 3G signal. I'm wondering if there may just be something wrong with my phone. Everything else seems fine.

    So what is an acceptable signal level? I seem to be right around -93dBm most of the time in 3G as 4G hasnt made it this far away from NYC. Im kinda in the middle of NYC and Philly

    I'm about in the same location. About 60 miles outside of downtown Philly and about 70 miles from NYC.

    Poor data perf

    After spending hour and hours trying to figure out what is going on with my gnex i believe its not the device. I do not live in 4g area and do no work in 4g area so i am stuck on 3g. But 3g on my old droid x was acceptable. I was mostly using my gnex on wifi and home so i didnt notice the lack of data until recently.

    All day today i was testing speedtest.net app on my gnex, moto xoom 3g, and wifes droid x.
    gnex 56kbps down 750knps up
    xoom 1250kbps down 750kpbs up
    droid x 1100kbps down 750kbps up

    All the above is basic averages of what i saw all day long.

    I decided tomtry somethin, I turned my gnex off for about 20 minutes and now finally my gnex is getting 1000kbps down and same up.

    Is this a network issue, sim card isse, device issue?

    anyone else having issue similar?

    again all eg

    I took my phone and Verizon put a new sum card to try and help the data connection if lack .

    Since 5 pm..horrible and mostly no connection. Great on wifi but 3g 4g not good. I have screen shots of no page loading.

    I would love to wait out the phone but it really is hard to use. Wife has perfect coverage sitting 3 feet from me.

    I think possibly trading back in for the rezound.

    Bummer, Skins. Unfortunately, this is probably how it's gonna be for a while. Tends to happen with developer phones. And this one has a brand new OS on top of it. Even worse, it's on a somewhat buggy, relatively new network. This will all take time to get ironed out.

    The 4.0.3 Radios seemed to help me. I know you said no flashing for a while though.
