Problems with Sprint WORLD Unlocked Radio

Is anyone having problems with the unlocked radio? Yesterday, I installed Mighty ROM and didn't like the way it ran. So, I reflashed backto the stock Sprint Rom and Radio. I then proceeded to unlock my Radio Rom and installed the Sprint World Unlocked Radio; I had to pay for the SIMM unlock software ($25). Ever since I installed it yesterday, my battery life is terrible. I charged my phone this last night and woke up with 40% battery left. Any clues? Maybe just a bad flash. By the way, I tested an AT&T Sim Card and it worked perfectly.

Re: Problems with Sprint WORLD Unlocked Radio

I'm in the same boat. I flashed the SIM/Radio unlockers and battery life and performance suffered because it seemed to be trying to acquire a GSM signal inappropriately. As soon as I went back to the stock radio, all is well again. Moral of the story, if you don't have an absolutely need to unlock the radio--- that is, an AT&T or T-Mobile SIM card--- don't unlock it!

I've only had one lockup, but other than that everything else seems to function the same as it did before the radio patch.

Re: Problems with Sprint WORLD Unlocked Radio

I'm going to try a fresh reflash. So far, I have reflashed back to the stock Sprint Rom and Radio Rom. Additionally, I ran the SIMM unlocker. I'm on the last step of reflashing the Unlocked World Radio. Lastly, I'm going to do a hard reset. I'm hoping for the best. Wish me luck!

Something is not right with the world Unlocked Radio. After the hard reset, it would not load up. I'm I doing something wrong?

Not only the battery drained much faster,the phone also ran a lot warmer than Sprint stock rom,I had reflashed between stock srpint rom and the unlocked radio about 5 times since yesterday and still have the same problem,it also lagging a lot if i stream internet radio through my bt headset,the phone performance just so sluggish,the eliteteam needs to re-work the radio,i believe.

Re: Problems with Sprint WORLD Unlocked Radio

Odd you guys are having all these issues. I have no problems. I have a Sprint and a Tmobile sim deployed. Battery life is the same.
