I am having big problem with this phone's signal quality. It is extremely unstable. I have reported this to Ting but also like to know your experience with this phone.
here is the 5 mins video of the comparison of my wife's cheap LG Optimus V from Virginmobile USA (sub $200 one year ago) and my Samsung S2 (sub $500 these days):
It is a little out of focus but it says the story. It is generated by an APP called network signal info. The moving curve is the signal strength in real-time. When it turns red (-106 dbm), the connection was lost. As you can tell, in 5 minutes the connection was dropped 4 times. While the LG Optimus V is very stable. I have done the same test in different locations and got the same conclusion. My question is whether it is this particular phone or Samsung S2 in general. On Sprint community forum, a lot of people complain about the loss of signal (LOS) problem. After a fix pushed out by Sprint, the result is mixed. Some people report the problem been fixed and some people report problem still there. My problem is not exactly the same with LOS. It doesn't show disconnected (O with a /) as reported by ppl on Sprint community forum, but no data connection when signal is -106 dbm.
