    Default Sprint GS3 drop calls after 4.1 upgrade

    I'm very frustrated with my GS3. Since the upgrade to 4.1 a few months ago I have been having way too many dropped calls. It's to the point that I'm thinking of switching phones or carriers. The problem is that some times I can be in the middle of a call and then all of a sudden everything goes silent as if the phone has been muted. When I look at the display the timer is still ticking and it appears the call is still connected but I can't hear the other person nor can they hear me. It does not matter if I initiate the call or someone calls me. I took it to Sprint but of course they don't want to look at it because I don't pay for the insurance. I just wanted to know if anybody else has noticed this problem? Please share any comments or suggestions.

    This obviously isn't a common problem with 4.1, or the forum would be full of posts like this.

    As is stated in every thread about problem post the JB OTA: a factory reset almost always fixes problems that began as a result of the upgrade.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Didn't mean to thank the post.. Oh well.

    Pretty much what meyerweb said is true. I used to have the same problem as you DROID.. But it stopped after awhile. This is a Sprint issue not a update issue. Is network vision going on in your area?

    Yes, network vision is going on in my area. Starting to see 4G LTE in some areas of my town. I will try the factory reset and see if that works. Thanks for your comments.

    I've already done this. I believe it's a network issue. Mine was horrible for about 2 weeks but now my phone is working like normal. Calls are fine and also people can hear me.
