I'm thinking you may be right with the tower infrastructure having changed in your area.
This seems most logical to me and if VZW can find me a Wireless Network Extender I will be able to test this theory. The phones seem to work fine for the most part just about everywhere else.
I too have a love/hate relationship with Moto smartphones so we chose not to go that route and the HTC has a sealed battery. Coming off of an HTC Evo LTE w/Sprint we have no desire to get back into that situation. I hope this pans out because the first thing I'm doing is ordering up a kit of two 3,000mAh ZeroLemon batteries & quick charger for these! I go through batteries like crazy (especially when I've got limited coverage) so not having changeable batteries has been the bane of my existence the last couple of years.
