UPDATE on page 4.
Received my Verizon iPhone yesterday and I'm in love with it, but I've been having a problem.
This has happened three times in the last day. I'm sitting at work and I'll have 5/5 or 4/5 bars. Then all of a sudden it drops to 1/5 bars and then to "Searching..." Eventually I just get "No Service." I'm not even holding the phone and I have a case on it already. Wifi on, wifi off, no difference. Case on, case off, no difference.
To solve the problem I've rebooted it (worked fine). Then it happened again and once again rebooted. Just happened a third time and I reset the network settings (which also does a restart). I'm back in action, but I'm worried this will keep happening.
I've NEVER had reception problems with any other phone in my work office.
Anyone else experience this?

Sounds suspiciously like the "Death Grip" issue that was highly publicized for the AT&T version on release.
On a note of Data Roaming: Verizon charges a LOT for data roaming, just FYI. It's in the fine print of your contract (I read it when I had a Droid).

People reported that at first too, though, if I remember correctly.
Of course, many of those reports were later proven to be blown way out of proportion.
Updating the PRL would be a good start. I was just pointing out the similarities. There's a thread about the "Death Hug" on this very forum

There could possibly be a problem with the cell tower. I see you're in OH and I sure you have had a lot of winter weather lately. Could be an intermittently bad antenna (s) on the tower or just ice in the antenna (s). Ice, snow and wind play havoc on antennas, feed lines and connectors.
