After some more snooping, one last question. Here's two snippets from the log files, one is from a geographical area where I can connect and the other one is when I'm in the cities where I can't connect. Since I've never flashed the radios until I did the viper ruu while trying to bring back to stock to take into sprint, does this mean my 3g is hardware hosed?
