    I have not had this problem, weird. Reminds me of the Droid X though. Have you called VZW to report it?

    Now that is weird man. Do you see it happening constantly? Or only certain locations?

    Has it happened with any previous VZW smartphones?

    I would seriously call VZW if no. Unless you are in a poor coverage zone?

    Have you had sim card errors leading up to the recent outages. Also was it difficult to get it to go away after the outage was resolved?

    It seems to be more of a Verizon issue in my area, all the phones seem to have the problem. I actually retrurned a Nexus fof that problem. Having a airplane mode widget toggle seems to free things up a bit.
