I just installed sprint TV on my 8530. Clicked "run" and I got the black screen with sprint logo for several minutes. If I clicked buttons, I got tiny white boxes near the bottom of the screen and the red loading graphic (only nothing ever loaded). Reinstalled and it asked me to reboot so I did and I was able to open the program. I tried to select "featured" and waited for a very long time only to get nothing so I closed the program. Now I can't open it again. I had an 8330 and used sprint tv so I imagine with more than twice the memory and 3G speeds, it shouldn't be taking so long and the behavior seems a little buggy. Anyone else having this problem? Possible solutions? I imagine it probably has more to do with running 5.0 than the actual device.
I would call Sprint *3 for sure, they need to fix something the network or the towers may not be running right, I would call and tell them your problem thats a concern and a nice feature to have on your phone your paying for it so let them know, until there aware of it will anything change probably not.
I was having the same issue with my 8530 and a battery pull did the trick. When I re-installed the battery and powered on, my Sprint TV was working. Hope it's as simple as this for everyone.
So are you saying I should have to pull the battery out every time? I just deleted it and reinstalled it before but then every time i wanna get on tv again i have to do it all over< its really annoying but so is taking the battery out everytime and rebooting your phone...any other suggestions?
