dropped at least another 1/2 dozen calls today. Took it into a corporate store. They say that they haven't heard of any issues. I'll give it another week. At my house, all is fine, no dropped calls. Go into the basement, and reception starts to break up. Didn't have that with the Mesmerize.
I'll give it through the weekend. Keeps it up and I'm either asking for an exchange, or just going back to the Mesmerize. :sigh:
I remember a US Cellular TV commercial a while back that talked about the "third step" of someone's basement and how that's where every other carrier lost signal, but not US Cellular...or maybe it was Verizon
I'm taking this phone to the store today. Another 5 or 6 dropped calls on the city streets. I tried turning off the 4G LTE and just use CDMA, but still kept dropping calls. -104 to -112 signal strength in the middle of the city. It did lock great a few times @ -65 or so, but a block later it was back to one or no bars and searching for a signal.
Definitely sounds like something is wrong and no one else is reporting similar issues.
I wonder when Samsung will release their first software update? I'm sure there are a bunch of little bugs that need to be cleaned up.
Kudos to USCC Customer Service. Told them of my dropped call issue. They went and grabbed a box and set me up with a new phone. Time to set up all my apps and screens again.
Is Swift Key only a trial then you have to buy it?
Is anyone having this issue with S-Voice: Sometimes S-Voice just talks and no text boxes pop up.
Yes but no cell provider will or should replace a phone based on not getting reception in a basement... heck technically cell providers don't even guarantee service inside any house or buildings, the only area they can really guarantee is outside because what the building is made out of could destroy cell phone reception and even outside is dicey as any new construction can influence reception.
You might get reception with a better phone but you can't expect every phone to give reception in every basement, if you get it then its either an amazing antenna, your lucky, or more usually a bit of both.
