    Hello again...

    MY HTC Hero seems to constantly switch between Ev and 1x.

    And one day it was stuck on 1x for 5 hours! It really makes
    my phone run slow and sluggish.

    My Wife has a blackberry and she's always on Ev.

    Any one else have this problem?

    Talk soon,
    G

    I've updated to 2.1., updated profile, updated PRL and am up to date on software.

    I also did a hard reset...DOH!

    The phone seems to just not be able to pick up "Ev" for any period of time.

    Thanks,
    G

    It maybe your location, have you tried it elsewhere other than your home to see, do you live near the city, in the country etc.. all these are factors

    Blackberry's tend to get better reception in the first place, as shown by my girlfriend's blackberry having service in places I've never had service.

    Yeah I live near the city. It just drives me nuts! One minute it's super fast on Ev and
    the next second I can't even use my facebook app due to it being so slow.

    Like I mentioned sounds like you are doing everything right, it is probably your location, you can call Sprint but they will not guarantee signal issues in your house!! but hey call them and see what they say

    Okay... I've kept up a close watch on my Sprint Hero today and here's what I've
    gathered as to the data connection...

    It seems that starting around 3-5pm is when my phone tends to start switching
    hard between Ev and 1x so I'm guessing this is due to an increase in users using
    their phones after work or what ever.

    Talk soon
