Re: Two Issues!!!! Plz Someone Help Me!!!

Lillo guy:
First thing I did when I got my TP is a hard reset, have you done that?I am just wondering because that helps keeping in mind that a HR will delete all and bring your TP back to factory settings so a back up solution is a must have.I use Resco as my soft keyboard,however I had to download a cab for auto completion and that is on teh Pro essentials up top. If you wish to try it just look at my posts and you wil find it.
As to no getting calls: does this happen when you are on the net or the TP is just chilling? there is a setting under PHONE/SCE/DDTM make sure that is off. If you are in between Roaming and your carrier signal that happens as well.Try to switch to Roaming only and do some test calls(need a cab for roaming only,it is on the sickies up top)
Good luck man..

Re: Two Issues!!!! Plz Someone Help Me!!!

A quick search pulls up this from the stickies section: Touch Pro Essentials

PST Tweaks:
First thing you must do is get your MSL. I wrote an app to make this very easy for you, more info on it here. If you have problems getting your MSL, put your phone in flight mode and try again.
You can tweak your Slot Cycle Index (SCI) to make your phone poll the tower more often. This makes your texts and phone calls come through quicker. This setting is a trade off between lag (most noticeable when receiving calls) and battery life. The default value on our phones is 2. Every step of 1 adds 1.28 seconds to the poll time, so at a value of 2 it is only polling every 5 seconds or so. Most people lower this to 1, so the phone polls every 2.5 seconds. This won't affect battery life much in areas of good coverage, but may impact it noticeably if you're in a poor reception area. Your Access Overload Class (ACCOLC) determines your phone's priority on the cell tower. The higher the number, the lower the priority. Do note that 0 and 1 are reserved for emergency service uses, so DO NOT use these. You can ACCOLC's of 2-9, default on Sprint should be the last digit of your phone number.

Re: Two Issues!!!! Plz Someone Help Me!!!

how many bars of service do you have when connected to the sprint network, do you have interference in your house that would impede the signal. is your phone programmed correctly? call sprint and ask to speak with tech support so they can run you through some troubleshooting steps. phones dont lose calls that much unless there is a serious problem.

Re: Two Issues!!!! Plz Someone Help Me!!!

the first problem is more than likely going to have to be cured by a hard reset. unless you are some kind of windows mobile genious. this is not a common issue.

goto the upgrades section and before you flash anything make sure you understand the steps inside and out in order to minimize any issues with the phone.

and backup your stuff using PIMbackup - free program.

Being in a hurry is a good way to brick your phone.
