Samsung Vibrant - Phone Shows Full Bars But No Service / Fix It

So this has happened a few times, but my vibrant will have full service and 3g or wireless access but it acts if it has no service. Internet stuff works just fine but when i try to call out and then it'll immediately end the call or immediately fail the text. It'll also go straight to voice mail for incoming calls.

The 3g or wireless will still work just fine and i can use every other function, surf the web, apps, whatever else works. I've tried to reboot, reboot and pull the battery, toggle on and off wireless, and toggle on and off airplane mode to try to reset the connection. Nothing but waiting it out seems to work. However the weird thing i noticed is the phone will give the "auto time and date updated" or whatever message and everything will work again. It'll only happen once in a while. Anyone have any ideas of what's going on?

Htc Evo 4g - Phone Full Bars Connection Slow / Increase It

Since yesterday my connection on 4g is holy crap slow. Ran a speed test, local server. I'm getting 108kbps down, and 70kbps up.

I've ran it several times, and it's always in that ball park, with the upload varying the most by a couple hundred. I've rebooted several times, with no success. Any suggestions?

Is There Any App That Shows Call Quality In Db's / Rather Than Bars

Is there any app that shows the call quality in db's, rather than bars? Probably can't replace the bars in the notification area, but it would be nice to have a small widget with the db's on your home page.

Samsung Galaxy S - Ota Vibrant Update - Undo Lag Fix Before Updating

Many of us galaxy s owners have had issues with lag concerning the galaxy s line of phones. There is a lag fix called voodoo lag fix and some others. While they tend to make the phone much snappier, some reports on the official t-mobile vibrant forums and over at xda developer forums indicate that the lag fix can stop your update dead in it's tracks.

Some samsung vibrant owners are stating that when they update to the new build eclair. Uvji6, after the phone reboots to complete installation, the device wont boot past the black vibrant splash screen. Many of the folks reporting this issue still had their phones flashed with one of the lag fixes mentioned above.

My advise would be to undo the lag fix before updating to ensure that your vibrant comes back up without issues after the update. Besides i'm sure we don't want samsung pulling the update in belief that it is bricking our phones. That would make us have to wait longer.

Htc Evo 4g - Internet Is Super Slow When Have Full 3g Service

I received my htc evo 4g in the mail approximately two weeks ago. Up until last night things were working great aside from the terrible battery life, but that's to be expected. Anyway all of a sudden the internet is super slow when i have full 3g service, mobile internet, wi-fi etc. Anything google related refuses to load. Certain websites (other than google) load, however it is extremely slow. Also, there is what appears to be the 'accounts & sync' icon on the tool bar when the internet is operating. This icon has never appeared there up until today. I have no idea what to do. I tried calling sprint, they placed me on hold for 20 minutes only to hang up on me. Please help, i am not a technology expert and i have no idea what is going on.

Samsung Vibrant - Phone Really Booted Or Not

I'm a newbie to android phones , i got the samsung vibrant for tmobile last month , i downloaded an app from the market which is one click lag fix(ryanza's) . And accidentally tapped a button which says: root your phone it took few seconds and said that my phone is rooted. Is that possible ?

Is there anything that i can do to know if my phone is really booted or not?

I looked at the history here in this foroum and found a similiar post i , so i downloaded the titanium back as what was said in there and upon opening it an error message comes up :
"Sorry, i could not acquire root privileges . This application will*not*work!Please verify that your rom is rooted and includes busybox and try again "

Does that mean my phone is not rooted? Should i still expect to recieve the update from tmobile in november?Cause this is what i'm concerned about !

Samsung T959 Vibrant Problem

I just purchased t959 vibrant to use with windmobile in toronto. I am having a weird problem as sometimes while i am using the phone, the phone lock screen comes on, almost as if it just restarted, and starts to search for network and media scan. I don't think its a simple screen lock, because if the lock came on due to inactivity, the screen wont come back on by itself. I think it might be a defective piece. Anyone had similar issue and was able to bypass it.

Samsung Vibrant - How Slow Non-native Browsers Are

It's odd reading reviews of other browsers in which users proclaim how lightening fast other browsers are compared to the native one. On the vibrant, other browsers are excruciatingly slow. Cnn (m. loads in under 2 seconds using 'web', while it takes other browsers up to 10 seconds, sometimes longer. It's really very odd, and it makes me think that 3rd party browsers on the vibrant cannot shine the way they do on other devices.
