    You know what's weird? I never in the past had a cell signal in Best Buy with any of my android phones much past the front door. I was strolling through BB the other day looking at all the stuff I can't afford and the phone rang. When I looked at the signal status it was showing three bars consistently...no matter where I went in the store (Salem, NH). I asked them if they had a repeater or an airave and they said no?

    I certainly don't profess this to be the case in all buildings but it was interesting.

    Today VZW spanked Sprint so bad I wanted to trade my sgsII back....then I was like for what? Verizons phones suck so hard, everything sucks.
    Remember when sprint had the worst phones out? Now they just need to step up the network, and they will

    Yes they will. What I like about Sprint is they warned me about areas that suck here. Verizon just lied to me, and let me spend 300 bucks on a phone that couldn't connect for half a day, LTE coverage is suck too. I am sick of paying money to the "my shiznit don't stink network." ha ha

    I just dislike the Roaming prompt. Not used to that. Granted it happens in areas I really have zero use for my phone, but dang, I am in town, not roaming.

    for the record, Sprint dominates VZW in clear areas like my house. My speeds are sick here while VZW chokes and throttles.

    I turn of roaming on every phone. Never had an issue. I believe roaming has been causing battery problems for our phone as well. Set it to sprint only and tell me how it works for you

    I still think the SG2 has radio issues, or else why would it have indoor reception issues for so many people...when other phones don't have the same problem on the same network? Ya know?
    The reason why it seems like so many people have had radio issues with this phone is because, like Jaywill said numerous times, the negative threads in the forum are far more amplified than the good because people don't typically post a thread stating how well the phone works. After all, the whole point of a forum (at least one of the main points) is to help others with problems on their devices.

    Edit: for example, the SGS2 overseas has a whole bunch of negatives threads on XDA talking about yellowing screens, overheating phones, and sometimes bad wifi performance, but that didn't stop the SGS2 to get great reviews. For all we know, like any other device, all those bugs or problems might've just been from a defective device.

    4g coverage is good here. I guess it depends on where you are.

    The general consensus seems to be that Sprint's data network as a whole, pretty much sucks. In Chicago both Verizon and AT&T do far better than Sprint in terms of 3G. Verizon's 4G here as well as AT&T's newly lit 4G blow the doors off wimax. Sprint's poor data network really gets exposed when you start using devices like the Eptouch or the photon. Can you even imagine what its going to be like once the iP5 launches?? To me it's worth the extra $ to actually be able to enjoy my smartphone. You get what you pay for.

    Sprint likes Texas. I get great coverage in San Antonio too.
