So we waited a very long time before we finally got our hands on the Droid Bionic last September we also paid quite a bit for it, and a lot of us have seen problems or defects with our Bionics. The most popular one is the data signal dropping and not always coming back – sometimes having to restart your device to get it back. Well after some testing I have found out the problem as to why our Bionics are losing data signal.
In the Droid Bionic, Motorola added a feature called Battery mode, and by default it is set to “Nighttime Saver” which turns off data between 10pm and 7am, and also turns off data after 15 minutes of inactivity and a lot of the time the only way to get it back on is by rebooting your Bionic. So here’s what we do:
- Go into Settings
- Go down to Battery & Data Manager
- Select Battery Mode
- Then select Performance Mode (As shown in the image above)
I did that two days ago and I have not dropped a data signal on my Bionic since. If this doesn’t solve the problem for you, you may want to call *611 from your device and talk to Verizon tech support. They will either send you out a replacement or a different phone. Lately people have been getting the Droid Razr as a replacement.
Hit up the comments and tell us how much these data signal drops are annoying you, also let us know if this worked for you.
