    Default Sprint users, has anyone that had connection issues...

    Have any luck returning the first device and getting a replacement one? The reception on this phone just so definitely worse than my note 2 was. It's sporadic and jumping all over the place and I am not happy with it at all.

    My reception with Sprint is just about the same as what I had with my Gnex, I feel bad for all the people having issues with the N3 and sprint

    My coverage/reception is about as sucky as it was with my GS2. Seriously debating going to Vz, but don't know that the pros will outweigh the cons.

    No issues here. I even get 4G sporadically at home, in the boonies. I can't complain.

    But no one had a note 3, was unhappy with the reception, exchanged it, and the new one worked better?

    This is the best Samsung phone i have ever owned. Wifi is strong. The LTE is great. Way better than the S4. Just to think, i was going to give up on Sammy but Note 3 has won me ovet.

    I'm returning mine MannyZ28. Call quality is too poor to use. Not sure if I'll push for a replacement or not.

    I have had issues with my connections and have been contemplating exchanging for another also. I didn't have these issues with my GN2. I also receive messages when on Wi-Fi stating my connection is unstable.

    I've only had my Note 3 on sprint for a little over a week. I love this phone, it has it small issues. I'm not sure how many of you have ever bought brand new phones just released to the public, but there are always small issues as they work out the bugs. I had it with my S3 and this Note 3 is no different. Be patient it'll get better as they work out the bugs. People love to dis Sprint but I love Sprint. They are cheaper, they seem to bring out android updates faster than any of the other wireless companys in most cases. Different people around the country have issues with LTE on Sprint. If your Sprint LTE stinks I really feel for you. Here in Michigan we have awesome Sprint LTE. My Note 3 has alot better connection than my S3 did. When I go to the boonies where my cousin lives, you could forget talking on my S3 as well as 3 or 4 g. My Note 3 I can talk on the phone and use 3g. Life is good.

    I just don't know if it's worth the trouble trying to exchange it for another one and then landing up having a whole new set of problems. After all, the garbled sound in voice calls didn't affect every phone but yet they came up with an update that fixed it. It seems obvious to me that my note 2 did have slightly better reception, but would a replacement fix it? It just bothers me seeing how some members here went from a note 2 to the 3 and have better signal when it's the opposite for me. There are just too many variables for a straight comparison.

    For those experiencing audio problems, the latest update is supposed to address that. Try the update before you do anything drastic.

    Actually, I have to admit that the reception on my S3 was notably better than on my Note 3.

    I have 2 Note 3s. I've noticed the reception isn't as good as my Note 2. Both phones drop calls. Just the other night, was talking with a business associate and the call dropped three times. Was really frustrating.

    Are you referring to cellular reception or WiFi? I'm assuming cellular. I had a Note 2, and my Note 3 has noticeably better WiFi reception than the N2, specifically with my 5Ghz WiFi at home. As for cellular, reception, my N3 has been at least as good as the N2. I'm not trying to say that you're not experiencing difficulties, but I suspect it's more of a coverage issue than anything actually wrong with the phone itself. It is, of course, always possible.

    The *only* problem I've had with the N3 is that nobody can understand me at all on "speaker phone" mode. Annoying, but minor (for me) in the grand scheme of things.

    I have swapped mine and still drop calls in all areas. The store i visit said they spoke to a samsung rep this morning and this is a known problem that is suppose to have a fix released sooner rather than later. Apparently verizon users had this same problem also but has been fixed. I think the call quality is also involved with this issue. I have tried the MJ4 update but still no fix.

    I haven't experienced any problems with the hissing/popping/garbled thing people were reporting, but MJ4 was supposed to correct that. As for general call quality, I haven't had any issues at all.

    The one criticism I have as far as calls go is that, when I try to use speaker phone mode, the person on the other end can *never* understand me. Even when I hold the phone right up in front of my face, people tell me that it sounds like I'm across the room. I'm hoping this is something that will eventually be resolved with a software update. Not a deal breaker for me, personally, but it's something that I think Samsung needs to address.

    What are you guys experiencing in terms of bad call quality?
