Randomly losing service on Samsung Galaxy S 4G
I recently bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Fascinate) with which I am very satisfied, except for one major issue. Every couple of days, the phone's network connection just dies, in a seemingly random fashion. I don't receive texts, calls or emails, nor can I send them.
I have read about similar issues with other phones that intermittently drop from 4G coverage for a few minutes and then wake up, but I don't think this is the same. This effect is permanent; the phone doesn't restore coverage until I notice the problem and reboot the phone. The worst part is that I have no idea when it happens...I've gone several hours without realizing that people have been trying to contact me, and now I'm always paranoid.
Has anyone else heard of or experienced this? I've searched endlessly for a similar thread but have found nothing. It's driving me nuts.
