    Default Between Sprint and my EVO I got the run around

    Woke up and my 4g was not on so I checked and settings and under 4g it read "failure"...ok I re started the phone and it was working. 2 hours later internet stopped working. Long story short re started the phone all good. Short while later lost internet.

    Called Sprint ( I will leave out the BS from Sprint..Lots of it) After 5 tech people 2 dropped calls from a landline ( my end or theirs?) I am told to update the PRL and the and the date using the MSL etc.....After all is said and done the 3g internet is back, which a soft reset would have accomplished. I check 4g and it starts to work and then sits..."obtaining ip address from Sprint" we wait and wait nothing. Turn off 4g then try again , no luck. Try re starting the phone , no luck. I am told to go to a repair store for service. 3 stores later ( long story) I am told the phone is defective. And I can wait 3 ish weeks for a black Evo or 2 days for an black and white Evo I chose the Oreo Evo.

    Anyone else have the "obtaining IP " issue?

    What sucks my EVo had been perfect until this point.

    having lots of issues with 4G in Chicago (downtown, surrounding neighborhoods). Other forums state that there are issues in other burbs. Might be a problem wtih Sprint, at least that's what it looks like.

    I have been having issues as well. My house got good quality 4g when I had clear, but with the EVO I'm lucky if I get one bar of service. Everywhere else I get the ip connection message. Even in Charlotte NC, Winston-Salem, Greensboro or Raleigh which all apparently have coverage.
    I haven't cared enough to look into it though

    No issues here. In fact I get 4g where folks with 3g are having problems. lol.
