Default [Q] Bad 3G Internet signal, to repair or not

I have my HTC One S for almost 2 years (stil have 2 months warranty).
It has been repaired a few months ago, for a 3G signal problem after I reset the device.
Motherboard and screen has been replaced.
After replacing the motherboard and screen I still have problems with my One S

3G and 2G internet is sometimes working but most of the times not working
I have to reset my telephone many times hoping my 2G or 2G Internet works
Or I can wait 10 minutes and hope it will connect

My 2G and 3G signal is pefect, but my Internet is not working

To avoid warranty problems I still use the jellybean firmware.

Is rooting and flashing the firmware an option to solve this Internet problems, or do I have to send it in for repair

Samsung Galaxy W @ ParanoidAndroid 4.3 [BETA3] [6/5/2014] + KhaN Kernel v2.0 // Base: I8150XXLMI // PhilZ CWM 6.01.4

"REVIVED" HTC Wildfire S @ CyanogenMod 11(AWESOME!!!) [6/5/2014] //HBoot 1.09 - unlocked BL // TWRP 2.7.0.0


It won't hurt you to press "thanks" if me or someone other helped you...

Since you have only 2 months left from you warranty, I strongly suggest to send it back and argue with them cause is the second time you have problems and so on...maybe even demand a replacement phone.

Rooting, flashing firmwares and radios can always be done, but you'll break warranty in this case (OK, it can be returned back to stock but dont wanna discuss this aspect now). The point is...you still have warranty and it's not your fault...but there are your money you paid for it. So they should give you a good phone. Out of warranty period you can try the other "software" methods. Now just let THEM flash and upgrade your firmware and radio and give you a proper functional phone in all aspects.
Don't force it...use a bigger hammer!
