    I have a lot of problems with Sprint signal. I read a good article at Nexus S 4g about Sprint. Do you have any comments regarding this problem? I would like to hear from you your opinions.

    It may be all in my head, but I feel like I've been having more problems than usual recently as well. I've never had great service on campus but I was usually able to get at least 1-2 bars on 3g. Now I feel like I'm being throttled to 1X more and more often, and in areas where I should have service (like outside).

    Absolutely. I will go from 5 to 1 bar while sitting still in a place where I always kept a steady full signal before. It effects both phone and data for myself and if it's a low signal area already I've been dropping more. Actually I just bought Roam Control last week because of it.

    I've been having this issue too. It's been making me think there's something wrong with the radio in my phone. Maybe it has something to do with the radio firmware that came with the Froyo release.

    You talking to me? Last week with a profile update. Or you talking to the other guy.

    Could this maybe be because of all this sprint roaming negotiation i keep hearing about?

    PRL updates don't do anything with reception issues. They're for when you're roaming.

    I was going to say that but I get tired of repeating myself. PRL (preferred Roaming List) Just a list of towers belonging to other phone companies and codes so your phones can access them when it can't access sprint towers. Absolutely nothing to do with sprint towers or reception.

    I bought Roam Control app long time ago. I have kept my phone on Roam control app on all the time now. Because sprint sucks now.

    If you continue to roam, you can lose your sprint service. Sprint pays for your roaming. If they decide you are roaming more than you should they will cancel your contract.

    Then again that may be a way out for you as well.

    More users, more smart phones and more data is taking its toll on the system.
    I live near down town Dallas, TX and at night when i get home my data speeds are slow, but in the same spot at 6am my speeds double.
    Thats just my two cents. LOL

    i have been having signal strength issues for the past few weeks. Getting on 1x and or low 3g signal. I thought it was my phone but then googled it the other night and saw how many people were having issues as well...take a look at this sprint thread :

    Sprint Community: Voice and 3G coverage being drastically...

    I also noticed this problem. at first i thought it was just the recent storms messing with the towers because i usually have steady 4g almost everywhere around my house. now, i lose 4g when i just change rooms.

    I haven't had any issues in Kansas City, however I have read several forum posts over multiple forums that many people are experiencing data issues, not just sprint, over the past couple of weeks. Could be just random that I've read so many recently, but thought I'd point it out.
