I added voice search to my ignore list and stopped the auto-kill. I did great till Sunday Morning, when I ran FourSquare. As soon as it tried to get my location the problem happened again. I rebooted, and removed foursquare and have not had the problem again. I even used SPB TV to watch the shuttle undock from the space station and watched a few YouTube videos....
Not sure what is going on....would like to figure it out....I am not sure it is FIXED yet.

Just wondering here because it's not clear if I'm having the same issue, but yesterday all of a sudden I cannot keep my browser open. I press to open it to my home page (Google), it starts up says acquiring position the closes by itself. Is this an issue anyone else is having? If so has anyone found out why. The only thing I can think I did before this yesterday was update my maps and join latitude. Could either of these cause that. I have since deleted all my apps except for Google Maps, Shazam, Yellowpages, Battery Time Lite and Zebra Paint (for my daughter lol, don't judge). Any help would b great

The exact problem I am having is this...
When on EVDO (3G)...
- Phone signal bars go all the way up even when lower signal
- When streaming or doing a constant data download, the 3G / data connection drops and the icon disappears from the top bar.
- Phone signal meter locks to full
- no data or phone calls will go through...
- Airplane mode will not switch on or off to try to reset...
- only way to fix is to reboot the phone
This does not happen when using WiFi.

OK, very odd!! I changed my homepage back to vision.sprintpcs.com, logged out of latitude. Here's the wierd part. I can go to any website and it will not close, however, if I gop to google.com before it loads completely it closes. GOOGLE ONLY!!! What the heck, isn't this a google based operating system, don't they own android? Call me crazy but why would GOOGLE be the only website I can't use? Anyone else have this issue? Would this possibly be caused from updating google maps?

It definitely appears to be software related, and for me, seems to be triggered by a combination of using location-based services (ie GPS) and simultaneous heavy data usage. Today I did a factory reset of the phone and so far the only two apps I've reinstalled are Twitter (the official twitter app, not twidroid or any of the others) and GPS Test (because I suspected the problem was GPS related, so I wanted to test this, it turned out not to make a difference). I ran it this way (only GPS Test running) for an hour or so with no problems. Then I installed Feedr and started syncing my Google Reader feeds while running GPS Test. Within 10 minutes the EVDO icon disappeared, signal strength pegged to maximum, and data services stopped working.
Also I remember I used to have a problem similar to the one described back in the 1.5 days, but it has gotten MUCH worse (i.e. more frequent) since upgrading to 2.1.

Suggestion: Find a "Ready Now" Sprint location and have store tech load 2.1. Then check the "Download" function with their tech. I've worked with the Sprint store in Brandon, FL and they have been pleasant and easy to work with.
We've worked through problems on 3 Moments. I now have my 4th. One interesting problem on the 2nd Moment was that it went into Airplane mode on its own. Problem is a "known glitch" where the power plug is loose, and, since it is on the motherboard, it can't be repaired and has to be replaced.

I read something on SDK Developers...
The problem appears to be between the WiFi and the CDMA, so it is advised that we handle it this way...
1) Turn off WiFi and reboot the phone
2) Leave WiFi off....
If you have to use WiFi, then turn it off and reboot the phone...I started my day off this way today, used the GPS, downloaded updates, downloaded RSS feeds....no data locks.
Maybe there is something to this. Before it did not take 5 minutes to lock up...

I'm having the exact same problem. Only I have it on my Samsung Galaxy S which was just delivered
It also runs 2.1 and I also get "Download Unsuccessful" messages.
I managed to do a reset via privacy -> factory settings. This worked very temporarily. I managed to download one Application and then it went back to "Download Unsuccessful".
No I can't even reset to factory settings because I get this:
"No reset was performed because the System Clear service is not available."

The phone also dials the wrong contact. When selecting a contact and then selecting which number to call within the contact, the phone will dial a completely different contact. This has happened on numerous occasions. Anyone familiar with this bug? Maybe its time to make a visit to the Sprint store....
