Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

I recently upgraded my Call radio from 1.03 to 1.11 F and was wondering about the differences people have noticed. I know there is the heat up factors, battery life, and signal quality in concern here, but I'm not sure which is the best for the phone. Anyone know?

Re: Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

Ah, I see. After I posted, I did some more research. So, It depends on where you are, and what coverage is good in your area. I see, I see. Thanks for the input, people!

Re: Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

I flashed mine with 1.07.06F and have moderate heat up, signal is good, but jumpy at times, however, the GPS takes forever to lock in. Not sure if it's OS related or radio related. I'm going to go back to the 1.04 canadian radio. I'm using cricket service in Phoenix, AZ. I'm not sure exactly which providers network i'm on since Cricket leases from VZW, Alltel, SPCS, and thats if I recall correclty, may be wrong.

Re: Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

The best discussion that I've seen is at the link you posted in your OP. Anecdotally, my temperatures have dropped and battery life improved since I went to the Sprint 1.11.

Re: Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

Best suggestion is testing all the radios on your own. Not one phone will have the same results of another phone using the same Radio. You have to take in cosideration these factors that affect radio performance:

*ROM you are running (stock vs newer build)
*Area you live in
*PrL your phone is running (currently multiple options for all carriers)

I changed stock sprint radio (1.03) and chose telus 1.04 cause it gave me the best results on all aspects while using Mighty Mikes's ROMS....

After updating and my PRL... Now sprint 1.11f is by far the best radio of the 7 options. When before it caused heat issues and faster battery drains. It now performs better than all my choices..

Best way to find out, is testing each and everyone on your own phone......

Re: Best Radio for Sprint Touch Pro?

I have found the best battery life/signal quality/least dropped/'invisible' calls using the Telus V1.04.05V radio on my refurb Sprint Touch Pro. I've tested all of the radios thoroughly (at least a full day per, in consistent conditions). However, your mileage may vary.

Edit: I'm located just south of Atlanta, GA. Location seems to make a difference. I suggest testing every radio with your selected ROM (even if its a stock ROM), then formulating your own conclusions.
