    You could try using a computer to flash a different PRL to your phone.

    I wouldn't do anything that might void your warranty at this point.

    It's probably an issue with the phone. I highly doubt it's anything to do with a prl, especially since it's a virgin phone. I would do a full wipe and re-flash the Rom. If that doesn't work it could be an issue with the phones antenna. Especially since the signal dropped out suddenly.

    On that note, here's what I would do to obtain a full reset of the phone:

    Factory Reset
    Format/wipe Dalvik Cache twice
    Wipe Cache
    Format /data
    Format /system
    Install new ROM.

    If that doesn't work, then I second the notion that it may be related to hardware, and would get a replacement OE.

    Its not that you take care of your phone, but that others have purchased defunct devices.

    And unfortunately, I think the initial batches (first three months or so) were the good ones. I had to get my first replaced in August, because I installed a bad framework-res and bricked the phone (it was bricked at the time whereas it wouldn't be now, since this was pre-CWM). I've been on my second/replaced-with OE since then without a hitch.

    I noticed a somewhat similar problem. Occasionally I will have a call go to voice mail without ringing despite being in a good coverage area. I noticed a similar problem with data that will stop working temporary. I'm not sure if it is an issue with the phone or the network but it seems to happen rarely.
