    I searched and couldnt find anything.

    PROBLEM: Even in areas that I know I have great Sprint coverage, my phone is not connecting to the network and I have no phone signal - "No Service". (WiFi works fine.)

    This is the second time this has happened. The last time was last week - I had just installed about 5 new apps (games), rebooted the phone, and I had "No Service". I uninstalled the new apps, rebooted, and service was regained.

    Tonight, I didnt install anything NEW, but a handful of apps had updates (Where, Twidroid, Voice Recorder, TWiT.tv, Depth of Field Calculator.)

    Actually, now that I think of it, that was my first reboot since I installed ShopSavvy.

    I'll uninstall ShopSavvy and Voice Recorder - I dont use the recorder at all - and see where that gets me. But does anyone else have this problem, or am I the only lucky one?

    Just an FYI, I only uninstalled Voice Recorder, rebooted, and all is well.

    I'm still curious if anyone else has this problem, and honestly, it really doesnt tell me what the problem is - only that the random solution I chose happened to work.

    Another interesting thing that may not be, but seems to be related: both my BatteryLife and AudioManager widgets have stopped working at the same time as the loss of signal - and both last time, and this time, fixing the signal problem did not solve the widget problem.

    Bugs make phones fun.
