My mom still has 3G issues on her 5 even after doing the update. (issue is where after awhile, OR after a long phone call 3G just freezes up completely and you must toggle the cellular data switch off then back on to make it work again)

 

This is the very same reason I returned mine 5 days after getting it. there is NO WAY I can stand an issue like that.

Haven't had that issue with mine...must have been the phone itself.

My iPhone 5 had the issue too when I had it. Wonder if it's a bad batch. Restoring while doing a handstand and saying the magic word while performing the "magical" ##update# does absolutely nothing to resolve the issue. It's already on it's second PRL and first iOS6 update since she got it and still doing this. Perhaps it's a bad phone. Problem is that she doesn't know crap about how to handle issues like this and I do, and I am so sick of fighting with people over stupid intermittent problems (long history of this crap with other tech related things)

Worst 3G problem I've had is that after a call, it takes about 10 seconds for the 3G to reconnect... 6.0.1 helped that. Now it's down to 3-4 secs.

She's on her third iPhone now and it's still doing the same 3G thing. Fortunately in the mean time LTE coverage is pretty good here because that is unaffected by the issue. Called Sprint and they finally confirmed that it is a known issue and opened up a trouble ticket. Now whether that gets things resolved or not who knows, but at least they know of the problem and aren't denying it.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
