    Sprint has a 30 day return policy, so you can return it and and get another Hero or....... Evo

    Yes, either what treborcj said or see if Sprint will update your PRL (Preferred Roaming List). My PRL is 60664 and I have no signal issues. If your PRL is the same as mine or higher then it is definitely a unique defect and Sprint should replace it.

    Note: You can view your PRL by going into Settings > About Phone > Software Information and scroll alllll the way to the bottom. PRL is basically giving the phone access to the most recent cellular tower changes/additions. It is not necessarily just affecting only Roaming, so don't let the name fool you.

    60664, really? I've been on 60668 for about a week now, y'all need to update.

    That is not an uncommon scenario. Back when I worked at sprint, phones I tested were all over the place, regarding PRLs. Every once in a while I would have to do a mass PRL update on a ton of phones.
