Kbrown0830, a phone of that nature should not be acting that way. When did this start? What type of reset did you do on your phone? What is your zip code?

We appreciate the troubleshooting you have done so far. You are awesome. The zip code you gave me is a rock solid as far as coverage is concerned. Is there anyone else having this issue as far as you know?  Where is this happening exactly? Has there been any changes to the device such as software updates?
