    So this morning I woke up, unplugged the phone and started streaming music through Spotify on wifi. No issues

    Left the house, wifi off, no issues.

    Got to work..... No 3g whatsoever.... Down 10% battery in less than an hour....

    WHAT... THE... ****

    Tried rebooting the device? Checked your Network settings?

    Next thought anyone you work with use Sprint to verify there is no service issues at work or that area.

    I've started, restarted, battery pulled, airplane mode, wifi on off, data on off.... Now I'm apparently data roaming while on wifi and I'm just pissed off....

    600 dollar phone with a constant set of problems....

    Try this:

    Settings > More Settings > Mobile Networks -- make sure that "Connections optimizer" is turned OFF.

    It's the NV ****....another guy came in with an evolte and his is doing the EXACT same thing.. And with little surprise as soon as I left work and got home...Everything is fine. I notice 4g at work from time to time so I assume they are working on towers in that area and inversely ruining the connections at the same time. Unfortunate and hopefully not something that is going to make my work days bad in the future. My phone is like....my life. I need it to work at all times otherwise I start having withdrawals and ****. Sorry for the angry rant...Just not fun to see your battery drop almost 20% in less than an hour because the phone can't lock a signal. I checked the battery stats and the phone was awake for the entire duration of my 4 hour shift.

    I'm glad you found out what was the culprit. I remember you talking about getting the Note 2 a while back and you finally got it and it seems to be one issue after another. I hope these issues become minimal soon. My phone is my life, too.

    My niece and her husband, both on Sprint, but her with and iPhone and he with a SG3, were having similar probs. Dropped calls, no data links, bad battery drops. Turns out Sprint WAS working on the local towers thus causing their probs. Lasted about two weeks.
    Work was completed and they have had no further probs.

    Its a good sign it may suck but it just shows sprint is working to improve their network I had the same issues plus receiving calls thst display my wifes number but is a different person both times it was someone making a call at the same time as my wife snd the lines got switched. But I only had those issues when connected to towers that they were working on. But since getting rid of my lgog I have had no issues with lte dropped calls or anything. So I would say this phone works great

    The phone itself is fantastic.

    My area went through that last summer and when it was finished not only did I have outstanding lte service,, also the 3g was noticeable better.

    Note 2, it's true, ,size is everything!

    Well the results sound great. The unfortunate path to them is not. I guess that's the price of progress
