Sprint data network dropping?
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?
I don't believe it is normal. The BlackBerry should stay connected. You may want to return the device to the store explaining the issue and see if you can get a replacement.
Would anyone who has had both a Treo 700p and an 8830 on Sprint comment on the signal strength? It seems to me that the 700p was better. The 8830 also seems to go from 2 bars to none to full strength all in about 3 seconds. Then it will drop back to 2 bars. Meanwhile, at zero I lost the data connection and it doesn't restore.
no way 700 was better, i own both (still do) and if the BB is not better it is the same.
My sprint 8830 does the same thing, and I've had two (both did the same thing) of them so I'm guessing its a bug with the sprint version. Its especially annoying when your trying to get work done and you have to keep resetting the wireless connection. I have had every treo since the 300 including the 755p and all of them have had better reception than the bb
Same here, I have noticed connection loss here and there at times. And like you I have had to go into the connection manager. It is wierd, but I am blowing it off right now, and use the lame excuse of the "Nextel/Sprint" merger. Mainly because I can't figure it out..lol! Is it the reason, no, but it sure feels good to use that excuse. The connection loss is something I don't think should be happening. It most likely is a bug or something.
