Data drops...a fix for me

    Some of you may have already done this but it was new to me. In hopes of saving battery power I had gone into settings-battery and data manager-battery mode and checked the maximum battery saver. Not making the connection, I had data drops all the time while streaming anything. I would wake my phone and have no data. I had to go into airplane mode and out to get data back. I went back through the menu and checked the performance mode and all my data drops went away. No drops during streaming, gps works fast and great, and I am always on data when I wake the phone. I may lose a little battery juice in the long run (have not tested that yet) but my battery was pretty good before. I was getting almost 24 hrs on the standard battery.

    Like I said, this may be yesterday's news but it may help someone.

    By default the Bionic is set to Night Mode. Night mode turns off data from 22:00pm to 7:00am? and would automatically shut it off after 15 mins of inactivity on the phone. It was done to preserve the battery but instead made it a headache for everyone. For those experiencing data drops they should take a look at this setting first. If I recall prior to the 5.5.893 leak I was experiencing drops still after setting it to performance. Instead I switched it to custom and made set it to 0:00 - 0:01 so I would only get a drop for a min. Once the 5.5.893 leak rolled out I set it back to performance and never had issues with it then. Could of just been me though.
