I have no major problem with my 3G or 4G signal, but when I attempt to connect the phone to a WiFi network, I have sporadic connection problems. When loading the market, I have to try clicking on things between 5-10 times sometimes or else I keep getting connection error messages. Trying to access network shares with ES File Explorer is hit and miss. 75% of the time I receive connection problems. Open Feint is unable to connect to the servers in games. Even setting up the device and logging into Facebook, Twitter, PhotoBucket, etc. accounts after a few hard resets come back with connection problems. All this happens over a WiFi connection, but seems to work fine over the cell data connection after turning WiFi off.
Sometimes I can "bump-start" the WiFi data by disconnecting/reconnecting and get WiFi data working for a short time, but I can't seem to get a reliable connection. This happens with any WiFi network I've tried to use, even the one at a nearby Verizon store. I already went in once and exchanged the RAZR MAXX for another phone, but this second unit is giving me the same problems. The store employee wasn't much help except to say that the upcoming software update may fix the problem.
Has anyone else had or found a solution to this problem? It's becoming very annoying, and I don't want to be stuck with this as long as I have the phone.
Very much thanks in advance to any help or input!
