Default Sprint data network dropping?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,

I have had my Sprint 8830 for about 3 weeks now and I mostly love it. I am having a couple of issues though.

The main one is that it keeps dropping the data network while I am using the browser. It happens in various locations where there is moderate signal. It mostly happens when in the browser but can happen in other apps too. I get a message that the data network is not available and can't download the page.

I would expect it to reconnect quickly but it doesn't. I have to exit the browser, go to wireless connections and manually disconnect the network. When I enter the wireless connections app it shows yellow. After I disconnect it and reconnect it the network goes green and I can return to the browser and load new pages.

I'm not sure this is normal because 1) it seems to happen a lot, even when signal strength is decent, 2) It doesn't come back on it's own

My old Treo seemed to get better reception across the board. Is that normal?
