[Q] NET10 with data and battery issues
I was recently on Tmobile and decided to switch back to NET10 for ATT's network. I was using an unlocked Lumia 520 when I first switched over so I used the micro-sim. I use an adapter obviously for my GNexus and my Rugby Smart. Well, when I switched it into my Gnexus, it would get signal, and then cut out. The phone still read as having a sim card in it, but no network anything. I tried it in all phones - same thing and eventually the phones wouldn't even connect to the network for a few seconds.
So, I activated the mini-sim in the kit (it has 3 - 2 att and 1 tmo). It works fine in both Samsung phones (I didn't cut it yet to put in the Lumia). The problem I seem to have now is the phones both lose connection to the google services at some point - the little blue color cuts out (and whatever it is on the Rugby). I still have data, the Gnexus shows the H and if I open the phone and use an app - it'll update or whatever. Sometimes I get connected to the google services right then, other times no. I reset the Gnexus a few days ago and the Rugby was about 2 weeks ago I reset it.
My battery dies like a mofo now though on either phone and I know that Tmobile always kicked down to UMTS to save battery and ATT mostly doesn't as evidenced by the H always - can this be the huge battery drainer? Could it be the NET10 mini-sim is also bad? I know the Gnexus and many samsung phones have 'eh' battery, but it wasn't like this on Tmo.
I'm on stock - no roms or anything. I get good, strong ATT signal (about 90dBm) at work and home. Anyway, thank you all.
