jgalan, I still have full reception and can make and receive calls. The odd thing is that when I dial my own number it will connect to vm, but that is the only way. As for data service, Sprint says I have to provision in order for it to work on a nexus.
Uber, i'll try your advise tonight with the Franco and see if that fixes things, would you install the kernel through CWR or through rom manager? If it doesn't work, i'll run the nandroid method. It just sounded counter-intuitive to me, which is why I was confused. And i'm guessing by flashing to CM9 you mean to install that ROM once I create a nandroid of the aokp then restore it after everything is working.
Would you guys suggest installing build 37 or it is best to wait for a Milestone since I am having all these issues?
