    I keep getting a message saying that I've lost signal and roaming charges are applying. Wtf? Why do I keep looking signal? And I don't even have roaming charges on my plan.

    I believe you can turn the warnings off. Look for Roaming Guard in the Settings/Wireless/Roaming menu, and see if the buttons for Domestic Voice/Data are selected.

    No, sorry, that's not 100% the honest truth. I've never had any signal issues on my phone. SOME people are experiencing signal problems, NOT all! This phone is awesome!!

    my phone tells me that often as well. I have the roam guards unchecked also but it keeps telling me. it only shows in the notification bar, nothing pops up on-screen so I dont know if maybe leaving them unchecked would allow them to pop up on-screen so maybe the settings are in fact working, who knows. but I do roam alot where I didnt with my old phone...

    Sprint is doing a lot to the network right now. It's possible that your area is undergoing maintenance and possibly upgrades, which could have taken your local towers down. It's either that or you're in a fringe area. That said, I also believe this phone needs an update to improve signal related issues for some people, which includes how the phone handles roaming (which I believe is directly related to LOS).

    Roaming is a near constant for me in half my home. My Pre didnt roam this much, only in the basement. Im hoping its Sprint working on the network and not just the antenna in my epic touch. Heck could be a combo of both

    I'm getting phantom LoS and my phone was just sitting on my nightstand...

    If you're roaming a lot from home where you didn't before, try calling Sprint.

    When I first moved into my current place I had great reception (on my last phone). Then out of the blue we began to lose reception. I called Sprint and they said they were doing tower repairs. Two or three days later they were still doing tower repairs so I called again. They offered me an Airave device to help with the signal problems, and now I'm all set. It's worth calling them to see what's going on with their service in your area.
