    I returned my S2 today, Phone was GREAT in all aspects except for the weak phone and wifi signals.
    At the end of the day, I need the phone to be a phone, all the extra stuff is gravy!
    Not being able to make calls in weak areas or dropping calls is not an option for me.
    Maybe if they fix the issue I'll get another but for now I'm back to my trusty ole Evo 4G

    What hisses me off is that once I got the phone following all of the hype of the phone as soon as I got the SG2 Touch I sold my trusty Evo for 175.00 on CL.. Now im stuck without a phone that I can use if I want to wait for something else.. THis is why im all over these forums trying to get people to call into Sprint and complain about the shabby built phone with its weak antennas.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. I have gone into data roaming a few times but haven't had any dropped calls. I hope they address the connectivity some are having. Good luck to you.

    It drains your battery tremendously when this happens as well. Im sitting here watching it right now draining as we speak.

    I called sprint and did post on the sprint forums, I just didnt want to get screwed in the 14 day window.
    Hope they fix it and once I know its fixed I'll go get another one.

    From what I can see from reading these posts, people could care less of what you post.
    All you might accomplish is to get banned, which many I'm sure hope you do.. Its a public forum yes but people are annoyed by you already so give up dude.

    Also if you didn't like this phone n you have returned it, why in the world are you here?
    And why you even care about others calling sprint when u no longer have the phone?
    Go get yourself a LIFE already and find another forum to post your stuff.

    Most here are very happy with this phone, so MOVE ON.

    And btw, the questions I asked you above I could care less to get an answer. I will never read ANY of your posts EVER so waste ur time writing back if you like

    i've ben lucky so far, no dropped calls, AWESUM wifi speeds (25 down, 10 up), and no data loss what so ever..
    I feel sorry for those having problems, but for me, and most others, this phone is everything is was advertised as..

    Wow, apparently the op ticked off the fanboys by having the gall to return his phone and mention it here. Dude, you have issues.

    Everyone is complaining bout the weak wifi signals. But is it affecting your speeds? I get one bar in my room but still get the same speed within 1mbps. My 3g and WiMax has been fine too. Idc bout the signal strength as long as I have signal and it isn't effecting my speeds

    Yes I go from 11 mbps to 700 kbps or network not connected. The phone is stationary in my room but the signal goes from full bar to no bar, back and forth. Called Sprint about it and did the whole reset the phone thing but no go. My 3g signal is pretty bad at 20kbps. Sprint told me to exchange the phone.

    Well the fanboys can't be mad at me, I said the truth, its a GREAT phone, the radios are weak, thats all.
    I walk up the stairs and no more wifi, My Evo has wifi when I walk up the stairs.
    I walk into Publix, can't make or take a call, no service. My Evo has service in the same Publix.
    Samsung can sugarcoat it saying the bars on other phones are optimistic, thats BS.

    I really wasn't concerned about speed really, I just wanted a signal to make calls and wifi.

    I have a epic touch and Jeanette had a evolution. Same signal at school. Ya may want to try a reset or get a new phone? It is possible? She wants my phone, told her nah. I gave back the phone, what a mistake that was!

    No issues here as far as network speed. I've had sprint for years and know their 3G sucks. As for wifi, I refuse to get Comcast so I'm stuck with my 3 meg DSL. I do think the phone may under estimate reception, but like some others here my speed or dbm's havent taken a hit compared to my original Epic despite typically showing fewer bars (usually 1 so that's not exactly an alarm in my case). I may be in a fortunate minority or have owned phones that get mediocre reception (though I rarely drop calls) and have never noticed I had an issue. Oh well. Sorry it didn't work out OP. I'd hate to give mine up!

    I haven't had issues with wifi speeds, just occasional (but inevitable) wifi connection drops which is easily remedied by toggling wifi off/on. But calls have been solid without problems at all. I don't get great WiMax where I live, but I didn't with the Evo 4G either so I assume it's the area where I live that doesn't get a good signal (since I got decent 4G when I was living in Texas a few months ago).

    I'm seeing the same thing. Seems like my speeds are fine even though the wifi strength indicator reads something different.

    after having many many cell phones, I have realized that the graphic representations of signal strength are NEVER accurate..

    Wow, no call to be rude to each other. Everyone has a right to like/dislike this phone and politely post their opinion without being chased out of the forum. Good lord.
