Data Connectivity Issues?

So did anybody else get this on release day and end up with major data issues?
I got the phone about 1pm and thankfully decided to eat lunch in the same plaza, as I realized the data was not connecting, despite showing 4/5 bars and "4G LTE" I went back to the store and explained the issue. They played with the phone and admitted it was not working right. They swapped the SIM, still nothing. They swapped the phone, now spotty at best but still freezing, so they tried yet another SIM. While this is going on, a guy comes in to exchange his SGII for the Skyrocket and his initial use is showing the same issues.
I asked for a refund, and they are going to give it to me, but they asked me to keep it a few days and they'd waive any re-stocking fe...

Looks like Engadget experienced some of the same issues in their test. Multiple hard resets and difficulty with SIM provisioning.

I'm thinking it is a design flaw Sad

Make sure AT&T provisions your sim card correctly and you have the correct data plan.

My data has no issues and I don't live in a LTE area.

I worked with both the store and the business account tech support people and they independently verified my SIM was provisioned properly.

I have seen several reviews comparing the Skyrocket and Vivid and it seems that a majority are saying the Vivid is consistently getting better/faster connections when tested side by side, so I have to think that it is a hardware issue with the Skyrocket.

I'm glad it's working for you..I decided to pre-order a Galaxy Nexus instead. I do not need the LTE speed to be honest!

It's completely normal from this to happend due it's a new model it has to have his failures but, about the question of the LTE speed its not the default data speed the default data speed it's the HSPDA+ and not the LTE, be cause the LTE does not admit to use the voice calling services.

Like me you have to wait until new brand batch to come out to get the new non-bug's version from Samsung

I decided to get a Galaxy Nexus instead..sure it cost 3x as much and isn't LTE on at&t, but I wanted a shiny new toy. So far it is great, although a few apps do not work perfectly with it due to Ice Cream Sandwich being new.
I could finally retire my Nexus One and not go back to it after a week!
