Do you have your network mode set to CDMA only?

I just recently switched to cdma only. It was happening with cdma/LTE but can not confirm if it is still a problem with cdma only seeing as it is very intermittent

1. When on lockscreen and accessing settings - lag/slow/studder
2. After initial phone unlock, scroll left/right and lag/studder
3. After initial phone unlock, opening app drawer takes about .5-1 sec to open. After that, it is instant.
4. After killing all apps and going back to the homescreen, scrolling produces an initial studder.
5. When scrolling through homescreens, the screen recognizes a 'long-press' and highlights whatever widget/app was selected and either moves it, or highlights it to resize. This only happens when scrolling through all screens quickly and constantly. I do this to see how quick I can scroll.

I think these are all because of Sense. I remember it being heavy when I had my Inspire, but don't recall having issues like these.

So I figure I'd let everyone know that I'm getting a replacement. Hopefully it was just a bad batch. I noticed I also have a piece of glass inside my front camera that can't be removed so that was the last straw for me.

Love the phone and enjoying playing with it.

The only I've experienced is that my Bluetooth headset randomly disconnects.

So far, it seems to happen primarily or possibly exclusively when WiFi is also turned on.

I listen to audiobooks and podcasts through the headset and it happens occasionally there, but seems to happen every time I am on a phone call at about 30 seconds.

Most times that it has happened, I've been stationary in my office with a strong WiFi connection, nothing between the headset and the phone and a good radio signal.

I just turned to CDMA only (will probably be a loooonnnggg time before we get LTE) to see if that will have any impact.

I remember a similar issue with WiFi causing Bluetooth issues on a previous phone. It was ultimately fixed with a software update.

I'm not in the habit of turning WiFi on and off (usually leave it on for better battery and performance at work and home), but may need to just leave it off unless I'm doing something data intensive.

I know there are others, but didn't Sprint announce an app that would turn WiFi on/off depending upon your location?

Has anyone had any issue with the SD card slot? Mine will show up and read the card put after 2 seconds of browsing it goes away and acts as if there is no sd card.

I was getting the same thing the last couple days and since there is no setting for daylight saving setting the time was off until it fixed it self... Hasn't happened today that I noticed... odd..

Other than that love it, the 'free' case I am not sure about but it was free...

U.S. Customs installed derp chips on all the EVO 4G LTEs at Apple's request.

Steve Jobs is RICLHAO right now.

Phone got Extremely HOT while using Navigate.
Used Navigate yesterday. After about an hour, the phone was so hot, I almost couldn't touch it. It also was draining the battery, even while connected to the car charger.

Also can't get it to Send hotmail emails.


Does anyone know it there's a long key press for the Search key?
