    I live in a small town that does not get ev-do (3g). Every town around my does though. When I use data it uses 1x (2g) When I am using data on 1x I do not get any phone calls. I have a HTC Hero. My brother lives right by me, has a different phone but uses same provider and does not have this problem. It only happens with the Android phones. Can An App be made to fix this problem?[/

    when a phone call comes in, it stops the data connection. It literally shuts off your access to data (shown by the removal of the 1x or ev symbol at the top during a phone call). It's possible that there's a glitch in your software that's causing the data to shut your phone calls off, and you might want to give sprint a call about it.

    Although, the first thing I would suggest doing is updating your profile and PRL in the settings, and then a reboot.

    I have talked to sprint they said its the phone. They said all andoid phones are just like that. they said i have to switch phones.. I dont want to!I love this phone. I have 2 other family members with this same phone in same town and have same problem. I had hoped there was an app to fix it.

    Try to email HTC support and see what they say, sometimes both Sprint and HTC are not on the same page, good luck

    It's NOT all android phones that do that. I live in a similar area, but with very little service. Sometimes I can get Ev, other times I can only get 1x, but rarely more than a bar or two. I can still get calls with data on, it just shuts the data off when a call comes through.

    It might be a glitch in YOUR phone, but not all of the phones are this way.

    If you are not happy with the way HTC deals with this situation, then I would call Sprint back and instead of talking to customer service, I would ask to speak to Account Services and tell them that you are not happy with this issue and you would like them to replace the phone, Account Services are the peeps you talk to when you want to close your account, and they will do what it takes to make you happy and not want to loose your business, good luck
