I'm not having the same problems you are. Is the weather widget one of the stock ones that came with the phone or is it a 3rd party app like Beautiful Widgets, etc.?
Overall, I stopped having miscellaneous issues and 'alerts' telling me to call Sprint due to the streaming issue that got messed up by the MR release 4 months ago (yes..... 4 months ago we received a maintenance release and were told a fix for this was in the works. Really? 4 months now and still no fix? Goes to show how 'important' existing customers are with their "flagship phone") by uninstalling all the Amazon app updates.
I haven't had any new problems for a while. The weather widget has been faulty for a long time so I just use an app called weather bug if I want weather info. I know its annoying when you get the wrong location in the weather widget but its not like the phone calls people at random, ( which it used to do ). Overall I'm happy with the EVO - the good far out ways the bad.
Our entire neighborhood is having connection problems. 76247 area code. My sons both live in Arlington, TX and are having problems. They can make some calls, but they get error messages and get dropped calls. My area can not make calls at all. This has been going on for a couple of days. I took my phone to Sprint store today. They ordered me a new phone. I don't think it is going to help any at all. I have a friend who has a sprint phone and is visiting in NY....he has no problems there today.
My area is 76009 Texas
I don't have an EVO but I do have 4 Epic 4g, all are not dialing out after 9:04AM Sept 15, 2011 I recieved 1 call then when I tried to call number back, phone say's dialing but then hangs up all 4 phone do same thing?
Actually all my sprint phones are not dialling out just hang up, something must be wrong at Sprint?
are you able to get on the browser? it could be 2 things. either tower issues in your area. or your phone might have gotten stuck on a tower...or possibly mixed up some of its data as it was switching from towers. yes i know that was 3 things lol
easiest fix attempt is to pull your battery for a few minutes. put it back in. go into settings and update your profile and prl. see if that works. if not then call into sprint and have them check your area for tower issues. if nothing shows they have a way to kind of reset your phones reception. it makes it look for another tower from their side of things. also make sure your phone isnt set to sprint only. settings-wireless and networks-mobile networks-roaming. it should be on automatic
being stuck on roaming makes it sound like the towers more than anything though.
hopefully one of those things will help.
