Im in the galleria, memorial park area. No 4g here but my 3g is intermittent. when i drive up/down 610, it cuts off and especially when im in my home it cuts off. Did i get a bad device?....hope not!

how is battery life for you all? Did any of you all root your device yet?

btw, where did you all pickup your device?

I work in the Westchase area and my 3G has been cutting in and out all day. Pretty annoyed about it at this point too. I was in Jacksonville Florida all weekend and even with the tropical depression 3G speeds there were really good there. Hoping it is a temporary problem.

Outside of the service issue today I am loving the phone. Battery life is really nice so far. Did not root (yet)

Got my phone from Best Buy

I was driving up Highway 6 from Sugar Land this morning to Westheimer and had horrible speeds. Google Maps wouldn't refresh or even add traffic. It was bad all the way to Eldridge/Briar Forest.

But, to contrast, 3g speeds seem to be better in my office than before.

Live in West Houston and work in Westchase area as well. Phone cuts in and out of
3g service to the point I thought I had a bad phone. Interesting people are having the same issue as I was about to ask for a replacement.

Battery life is great and ordered online at Sprint

3G has been spotty for me as well. Of course it was never great with my OG Evo, SGSII or iPhone either. Batterly life, on the other hand, has been great. I have rooted, but still running the stock ROM.

when you rooted, did you do any special modifications to increase the battery life? Im fairle new to the android game so forgive me if this is a dumb Q.


care to send instructions on how you rooted?

I used the method described in the sticky in the Rooting subforum here. I have not done anything special to increase battery life. I'm not sure anything really needs to be done. With light usage I went 24 hours and still had 68% left. Today with moderate usage I went 13 hours and still had 70% left.

I think i got a defective phone or something. The only thing i can think of is that i have the ESPN app and turned on the notifications. I dont use live wallpaper although i wish. SO no other syncing that i know of.

My 3G is super horrible! My phone is constantly going into data roam. I did catch 4G for about a minute on the Hardy and BW8 today.

I'm at I-10 near Antoine, no LTE so far. I've had it a week now. 3G speeds are improved over my kids Epic Touch and Photon. Battery is amazing. There's a new PRL available as well.

There's a system update but not prl for me. Btw, these system updates updates automatically right? Any way you can set to manual update?
