    Has the latest software patch from VZW fixed the 4G/3G connection issues? Please I hope so because I want to buy this phone!

    They haven't released one yet. Keep in mind no matter what 4G phone you buy it might have issues, its not just the Charge. Honetly, since my area went 4G I've never had dropped data. It was only when I first got my Charge & my area was 3G.

    I guess you can't go by the reviews on VZW. I'm going to take the leap and buy this phone. It will be better than my Eris.

    Omg...yes it'll be better than the eris. Much better. I don't have many problems with this phone at all. Some say they do...but I don't.

    Buy my DC... It's got tons of accessories and I'll give you a better deal than what you'd get ON contract :) That way you dont have to be stuck with it for 2 years if you use an upgrade.

    If Verizon or Samsung ever address the issues, it's a solid phone. But I think people will have share time keeping it for the full term.
    If you want the details let me know. Only reason I haven't put it in the fs thread is that I haven't taken the obligitory username date picture. I can get it, but I've been swamped at work.

    I can't do it. My budget won't allow.

    As a side note to this, my son-in-law was here for Turkey Day with his DX2 and had a full load of bars while my DC had one bar and read -105 dbm and my D2 has a signal of -87 dbm.

    I am starting to think that the 3g radio in DC is just not as large and powerful as in non 4G phones.
