Yesterday I was at a place I rarely ever visit. Actually, I was surprised Sprint had coverage in Rincon, since it's a tiny beach town in western Puerto Rico. My iPhone 4 had almost a full signal with 3G; however, my husband's phone, a Samsung Galaxy S II had either no signal or constantly told him he was about to go into roaming and whatnot. I was posting pictures to Facebook and sending MMS to my mom and he was stuck with a very expensive dummy phone. My brother-in-law was there too and he has an LG Optimus V with Virgin Mobile and he had almost a full signal with 3G. Two very different phones connected to the same network working perfectly fine means the issue was not with Sprint.
I believe there must be some sort of issue with the Galaxy phone. I would like to know if someone else has had this same issue.
I have the same issues and my kids phone, that was one of the free ones actually works better than mine. I have dropped calls, it freezes, can never find a gps signal for the gps and it is my second one as well, because the first one was faulty as well. I am in 85028
Add 21740 to the list. I had a Samsung Moment & it did the same thing. I swore after that I would never get a samsung phone again. I had the evo & loved it. I decided to get the galaxy sii because of all the good reviews I heard. It worked great for a few months than the same problem began with the internet. Samsung used to make really good phone so I dont know what is going on with them. I called Samsung & they had the nerve to tell me that they have no heard of this problem before. I told them that it was all over Sprint's website. I did some reasearch & the other carriers are not having problems with these phones. Im ready to leave Sprint over this problem.
I am also having issues! My son has my old EVO and it works great. I am stuck with a phone that has terrrible reception. Even in the middle of big cities like Dallas. I love this phone for how fast it is and the camera is AMAZING!!!! however it usless as a phone!
I have exactly the same problem in Denver (80004, 80227, 80918). If I'm in neighborhoods, even a block or two off the main roads, I get no signal in my Samsung Galaxy S II. I have to have a home antenna booster in my home to get a signal and I'm in a major suburb in Denver just a block away from a major road. I have moved three times into other major suburbs and every time it's the same story. This was happening with my previous HTC EVO phone as well. It's the network. All my friends with different networks get full bars in my neighborhood. When I talk to Sprint they say they are upgrading the towers but it never happens. And yes, I now pay extra for 4G and can't even get a normal 3G signal most of the time.
YES!! The worst issues, the best i can explain is that ever since the new software it has gotten worse! It never seems to get data service, hard time downloading, it re-sets my settings sometimes up to 5 times a day? i am so damn tired of payingh for something that does not work.. Do we bother Samsung or Sprint with these issues? These companies want to upsel, make $$$$ BUT they cant delioevr and we are all jjust a bunch of pawns in a pawn shop! The old flip phone works and worked! But a tab or an i-pad its less exspensive and pay for the old phone the cost ios much better and you will get service! and a device that actually works.. very disapopinted with the samsung galaxy 2!
i live in VA Beach and have been told by so may Sprint people "its getting better" working on the network? I typically only have 2 bars on my phone, hard time uploading, downloading you name it! I am reading about so many peopel having these issues? Is teh grass greener with another company? How can Sprint sell a service they can't deliver.. Its mind-boggling to me!
