My questions for you guys:
1) If I root and install a custom rom based on MF9, will I have the same issues?
2) Would I be better off just rooting and installing the latest OTA before MF9?
Your connections issues are with your phone (hardware or software), sprint's network or you location.
Doubtful that a ROM will make 'much' difference if you already have problems.
What might help is starting at complete stock MF9 - rwilco12 has a full 'one-click' with root here
There is also a full wipe (clears the data partition too) that might be a better option for starting out.
Then once you get your phone activated update the PRL and then the Profile.
maybe start thinking about ROMs. Spend some time looking reading and then reading some more and you will find what you need.
