Well to be fair, Verizon mentioned these are all issues that have been brought to their attention by end-users, so I'm sure they might be aware of it but I'm sure its not as common as the previously described list.

Half of the list is the way it's designed to work according to Verizon's specs! The BSOD - Moto is aware of it on their support forum, so hopefully that and the random reboots others are getting will be addressed...IF they can figure out what is causing them!

Yeah, and now subtract from that the times they say "oh.. that's normal and how it's going to be according to Verizon". You wont have quite as many left.

The only issue I'm really having is that every once in a while my phone just goes black... as far as I can tell it's still on.. no buttons light up.. the power switch does nothing.. it just locks up and I can't do anything about it until I pop the battery.

How often are you experiencing this behavior? This has only happened to me once.

Known Issue. 9-8-2011. Customer duped in to thinking this would be one hell of a phone. In actuality, it's a mess like every other phone we put out.
Solution, take said phone to the grand canyon and heave ho it over the cliff.

I wonder if a piece of this software update involves keeping Pete's Motorola Root Tools from granting SU.

Many "issues" on the list are "working as designed/approved by Verizon". the "real" list of issues is pretty short and will be even shorter as soon as the first two OTA's are broadcast.

Fine it's a short list with a lot of stuff on it. I not saying that everything needs to be fix but that the list is problems user did not like and wanted Moto and Verizon to know about. If Verizon wants something to work that way, that is fine but we as user's don't have to like it.

Knowing Moto they will try and fix everything they can in the next update, because that's what updates are for. Nothing works perfect out of the box.

I can't recall any smartphone that hasn't needed a few updates to improve upon it's release stability/function. I didn't buy the Bionic thinking it wasn't going to require some updates. Furthermore, I'm not plagued by ANY showstopper problems (If I had been, I'd have marched it back to Verizon within the first few days, like I did the Storm).

I knew buying the Bionic that there would be an update with in the first few months to fix issues of the first 4g dual core phone on Verizon. I also have had no "showstopper problems" beside the bsod twice, which I can deal with until the update comes out to fix it. All I was saying is that the list is long of things people where having issues with. Just because a user has issues with something does not mean Verizon and Moto needs to fix it but they should be aware of it.

You need to remember this is a forum for people to post there opinions and just like Verizon you might not agree with them but they have a right to express them, not tell them to count, then sub what Verizon feels what is right, then subtract again what you feel is going to be fixed in the next OTA
to come up with a number that suits you. If you want to look at that way that is fine but to kept challenging a person to see your way with government math when all they stated is that the list was long is just rude.

You have your opinion and I have mine. Lets leave it at that.

I love my Bionic and would not trade it in even with some issues because no phone is perfect.

Solution, take said phone to the grand canyon and heave ho it over the cliff.
if you think about it, most of the hype to get people jazzed over a phone is from forums like these using leaked or sometime made up specs. the one that was shown earlier in the year was upgraded as per moto. big red never gave a release date or confirmation of the device until a week before.
i for one like it. i had a storm 2 and loved that one as well, even though everyone said it was crap. as long as it works its fine. look at all the iphone people who have to hold there phone a special way cause of were the ant. is.

thanks for the list. good info.

Cool Seriously?

Folks, lets put this in perspective. The reported issues are nothing more than a minor inconvenience. Have you ever bought a car only to have to take it back to the dealer for that squeak or things not working? How about your shiny new Windows computer that grinds to a halt on the first day you have it and then you have to install 100+ updates on Black Tuesday. For those that do not know, "Black Tuesday" is the scheduled once a month release of the giant list of Microsoft patches that need to be installed on Windows systems.

Lets face it, Android is a developers level system. It will always have bugs and due to the open nature of the OS, software will crash, changes will be made and things will improve and get worse depending on what is updated or loaded to the device.

Motorola has work to do on the operating system to make it work better with the devices, but it will always be a constant effort.

We really should not flame Motorola or Google as long as things improve over time. If you want the "Perfect OS / Device", get an iPhone. Ol' Steve has it so locked down that you cant do anything even if its jailbroken and its really really pretty. It is an awesome device, but it is for people that like the shiny toy and want to wear handcuffs for the entire time they own the phone. If you want cutting edge, stick with Android and the new devices and you wont be sorry, but you will have to suffer a few bumps in the road.

Default Odd Droid Bionic Behaviour When Charging

Question: I've noticed odd behavor on device when it is plugged in for charging (USB and wall-power). I only use Verizon-sold chargers. Specifically, the "password" grid behaves badly and I need to unplug in order to get it to work again. Touch screen function also behaves oddly.

Anyone else noticed this??

Nope, my phone has always behaved normally when plugged into the charger, have you removed the battery and rebooted to see if thats the issue?

i don't remember the droid incredible having this many issues. (mine had none)

I do remember the storm SUCKED. that phone is why I own a bionic right onw. when I broke my incredible, I went back to using the storm while I waited for the HTC Vigor...and I just couldn't stand it any longer.

i feel like the primary difference between a smartphone and a regular phone is 3G connectivity. without 3G you have a dumb phone that sometimes acts smart as long as you are near wi fi. that being said....I would imagine a working 3G antenna would be among the things a prominent smarthphone maker should have gotten right BEFORE launch date... This isn't new technology.

I'm sick of restarting my phone to get 3G back =[

I completely agree with this. The fact that they are taking a month to address such a blatant issue is crazy.

Fixes takes as long as they take. I see nothing wrong with a Nov release of the first update. Personally, I want them to thoroughly test the update, instead of getting a bad update like TB owners got recently. (at least I believe it was the TB that had it's update pulled)

Months for major problems like loss of data is too long also. You don't take your car in and say all the gauges are dead and the a/c doesn't work, but take your time, a month or longer is ok.

anybody else have a file stored that is dated 1969 and sometimes 49 in the onboard storage file? I called about it and they said not to worry so I'm curious if anyone has info on it?

I see something wrong with the first update being a month away when you buy a smartphone in order to use 3G/4G data connectivity and pay $30 a month for that connectivity, and that connectivity has issues making it so you can't use it most of the time.

Fixing a car and fixing the software on a phone are completely different. To change the breaks or gauges in a car I order the new part and replace them. To fix the software on a phone new code has to be written, tested for problems, tweaked and then re-tested until it works and doesn't mess anything up. I would rather them take a month or so to get it right then have them release 5 updates in that time that do more harm than good.
It's just like when Windows or Mac release an update for their computer OS's, they take time to get right.

seems a mod deleted my post about telling him that he made a bad analogy. wish I had a copy of my post: i'd put it back up. I didn't even receive a private message explaining why the post was removed. geez.

From what I found the charger has to be at least 850ma anything less and it takes a long long time to charge.

You do know that the included charger is 850ma, right?

Oh really, that's what all the writing on the side of the charger is.
I was stating that because a lot of older micro usb chargers are only 500ma chargers and not all micro usb chargers are equall.
The reason that they say to only use motorola or verizon branded chargers is so people that do not know any better don't just buy what every charger fits. You can use what ever charger you want as long as you make sure it is at least 850ma.

yup. it takes a magnifier for me to read the fine print, including the amperage rating.

Angry Droid Bionic should come with a warning label (buy at your own risk)

Had I known before I decided to go from an Iphone which I never had a problem with to a 4g Droid I would have never done it. The Bionic is a POS. One would think that Verizon and Motorola would have addressed the issues with this phone before they hit the market. My phone looses internet and has to be shut down. Well I say trying to shut down but the phone freezes and the battery has to be pulled. Apps just vanish from the home pages and if they are there they say not loaded so you have to re-download them from the market and then the come back to the home screen. Looses internet connections while watching Netflix. Come on Verizon early November for a fix. Guess everyone should just return the phones and go with something more reliable

Default BIONIC = CRAP phone

This phone was a piece of crap! I've owned mine for less then two weeks, and returning it today. I CONSTANTLY lose data connection on the phone. Turning Airplane mode on/off, and removing the battery does nothing to solve the problem. Working in IT and needing, sadly...24/7 data access for alarms in our data center and support users, this was a BIG issue.
How can someone say this is a minor issue? My question, is this issue more a AZ issue, or nationwide? Most people I've seen with this issue occuring are in Arizona, as I am too.

It seems to me that some users may have received lemons and should go back to where they got them and get them exchanged.

As for the performance issue ... I suggest they checkout my Network suggestion (assuming they stay with the Bionic).

As for me ... I waited three months for the Bionic to be released ... glad I did ... glad I got the first one sold in Keene ... really enjoy the improvbements over the DroidX and the DroidX is IMNHO one hell of a nice piece of equipment. I'm looking forward to 4G coming to town.

This is a free marktplace ... if yu are uynhappy with what's in the Bionic ... maybe get your money back ...

Confused Touchdown on Bionic works great for me...

Interesting:
o 9/22/11 Touchdown Compatibility:
NitrodeskΏs Touchdown will not function on the XT875.
Action: No work around required.
Resolution: No resolution required, working as designed and approved by Verizon Wireless.

FWIW, I have not had any functionality issues with Nitrodesk Touchdown (full paid version) and the Bionic. I was aware of this supposed incompatibility before I pulled the trigger on the Bionic. Little surprising to see such a definitive statement of "it doesn't work and that's how we planned it". I was OK with using the stock Corp sync if needed, however, happily TD is working just fine for me (Activesync).

Question: I've noticed odd behavor on device when it is plugged in for charging (USB and wall-power). I only use Verizon-sold chargers. Specifically, the "password" grid behaves badly and I need to unplug in order to get it to work again. Touch screen function also behaves oddly.

Same here. Really messes with the Swype keyboard.

Friends, I'm having to edit posts for disrespect, accusations and unwelcoming remarks to new members of Android Forums posting in this thread.

Any member, new or senior, is welcome to come straight to a device forum and post issues and rant about their problems with those issues as much as they want to. Indeed, that is one of the main purposes of device forums.

iPhone vs Android? Well, we do see a lot of that in Android Forums, especially in The Lounge and Android Lounge. <--- Those are the two best areas to make those comparisons, so as not to clutter up the device-specific areas like this Bionic forum.

Please only address the issues, not the member and her or his suspected motivations. If you feel that user guidelines are being violated, use the button, but please do not challenge or even insinuate the motives of another member, because that is a violation of user guidelines as pointed out in our Zero Tolerance Policy (linked in my sig).

Easier said then done.
My Webtop adaptor does not work. I just got an Inductive charger and it does not work. I went to the store and they said I was past the (2) weeks and they would only replace it with a refurb phone. I don't know if that makes sense doing.
