Default Sprint 8830 Lock Up, use VZW software???

Please Login to Remove!

I'm new here, been reading the forums for a few weeks though.
Here goes,
I've had a 8830 on Sprint for about a month now and it will lock/freeze up while trying to make a call about every 2-3 days. It gets stuck on "Calling" I can hit end and everything else works fine but to be able to complete a call I have to take the battery out, then everything is fine.

I did a search on this and found 1 VZW customer that seemed to be having a similar problem who upgraded his software, wondering if I am the only having the problem on Sprint.

Someone reccomended I try the new VZW software but I'm kinda leary to do that.

Who here is using the Verizon software on the Sprint 8830 and how is it working for you??

Thanks for the help.

Software v4.2.2.123 Platform 3.0.0.64

I am with Verizon but the software will definately work on a sprint phone and the upgrade will fix the problem you are having as I had the same problem until the update.
