Default Phone loosing service

In need of some help here. Yesterday I noticed my phone data bars going gray quite often. Today at work I was loosing the network, the data bars were going completely away even though I was in a great 3G area. I was running Liquidsmooth's ROM but decided to flash JBsourcery. I don't think the ROM's have anything to do with it but now I'm loosing service every 3-5 minutes. I have no idea what could be causing this. My phone has been preforming flawless up until yesterday.

In hopes to fix this i've pulled the battery, let it sit for a while, i've removed the LTE card and let it sit but haven't had any luck. Its not my area, my wifes iPhone has been fine.

Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Here's what my battery status looks like

My baseband reads 1515.10 V.FC04/1515.FC05

Can someone link me to the newest radio's, maybe if I flash them that would help.

EDIT: Flashed the 4.04 radio's and still have the issue.

unfortunately JE78 i have been through 2 replacements with this issue

you received a version made in China correct?

it will continue to happen, you will drop calls constantly, and there is nothing you can do about it.

baseband version .9 is what you need, and unfortunately you will have to send the phone back until you can get one that is .9

i received my 7th replacement today, and so far no issues.

i hope this helps

Well here's my other issue, I bought this phone from Craigslist. Is there anything I can do or am I out of luck?

And also why is this just happening? I've had this phone for 6 months and its been flawless.

remove the battery and tell me where its made from

it doesnt matter where you bought the phone, regardless if it was made in China, and has the baseband of .10 instead of .9 thats whats going to happen. Mine did it immediately. Be happy your's took some time

that will happen, when i had a rom loaded it was fine for the first few hours 8+ and then went all to hell when i tried sending a text message.

but i hope your issue isnt a constant one, i would still call verizon and explain what is happening in case you need to get it replaced because of this same issue

I should've said the rom I loaded was my backup. The same backup I was having issues with a few days ago. I'll wait and see I guess.
