    I've had the phone about a month now and generally like it. But I have this persistent problem where I can't get a 3G or data connection when moving from a roaming area into a valid 3G/4G area.

    Is there a setting I'm missing where the phone will automatically pick up the signal once I move into a valid 3G zone? Right now the only solution is to power down and back up for the phone to get the 3G connection.

    Thanks in advance for your help/suggestions.

    Good luck with finding the solution.
    The only thing I can suggest is messing around with the roaming settings.
    I ran into a similar problem when I was up in the middle of nowhere Vermont, but here in the DC area I never roam.

    Try changing the roaming settings first. If that doesn't work its best to put the phone into airplane mode wait 30 seconds then disable airplane mode

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately no luck. Only a full power down / reboot cycle will find a 3G signal. Which will prove more fruitful -- contacting Sprint, Google, or neither?
