    I have tried but because i have no service i cannot succefully update the prl. I believe it is a software issue because as i was driving it would get about 3 bars of service and then suddenly none and it would jump all around for some reason. Please help.

    Is the phone rooted? Flashed a custom recovery? Software version VD?

    You can do a current nandroid backup to backup your phone,
    Then you download and restore the Gingerbreaked Stock VD rom
    Once thats restored - don't setup anything - just update PRL and Profile, then reboot into recovery,
    then go ahead and restore your current nandroid backup and see how it performs.

    You should try to update PRL and Profile in a city if at all possible where there is good coverage.

    The phone is rooted. I will try your instructions. Is there a place other than mediafire to download gingerbreaked stock vd rom because my computer blocks mediafire.
