Default Signal fluctuation when browsing

Please Login to Remove!

I live in an area with full signal and have no problems when talking. The issue I'm having is that when I am browsing I notice things slow down and that the signal will suddenly drop and sometimes empty with even an "x" stating no network coverage. I have no other issues at all and was wondering if this is a Sprint issue or possibly a phone issue?

It's probably because when you are browsing you are isolating the device with your hands causing the signal to become weaker.
