So far I have found using the bionic in a 4g area a pleasure, but I have run into issues a few times when I am out side of Verizon's lte area. last night I was playing poker near providence ri and my 3g network was working great for several hours, then all of a sudden it stopped despite the fact that I had 4 bars. I was on the same seat the whole time. I tried to shut down and re boot the phone but the network never came back. Today I am on an Amtrak train going from Boston to new York and the same thing happened. This time after rebooting the 3g coverage came back. Has anyone else had such issues? Again I would like to reiterate I am in an area that should have 3g coverage and I have good service (3-4 bars).
