    Likely a VZW issue. Try a *228 option 2 and a batt pull.

    Are you sure you aren't hanging up on them? I was having a huge issue with disconnected calls after getting my storm 2. I got a screen lock and the problem has disappeared.

    Does your proximity sensor not work?

    I would call 611 and ask if they are performing work on the towers in your area. I had some issues with coverage and data a week ago and it was due to them performing service on the network in my area. Would have been nice of them to give us a heads up.....

    Great question. Why lock on Storm2?

    Ok, I am next. Dropping audio on Storm 2 (after 32 seconds). Worked perfect till today.
    No, they didn't hang up on me
    I have very good reception.
    Everything is same as before (I didn't change any setting)
    Running the latest OS
    Does it with speaker on as well - so it can't be proximity sensor.

    I live in banana republic of Costa Rica, so no possible unit exchange or guarantee (I am on my own).

    So what's the solution?
    What is: "Try a *228 option 2 and a batt pull" do? (I tried- not much)
    Is screen lock THE solution?
    Is this OS related?
    Is my unit screwed up?

    I have/had Storm 1 with no issues.

    TIA

    This is how to update the PRL. Basically the list of towers the phone can talk to. I am not sure if this is VZW only though.

    Thank you for your explication. Not applicable for my area (Costa Rica) then.

    Ok, still looking for solution to my problem?

    TIA

    BTW: I just did battery pull and seems to work fine again (bit confused now)

    BTW 2: It's still holding after few longer tests.

    Its VERY common with unlocked 9550s everyone i've met with a S2 here had the problem. I loved mine but was forced to sell it due to the dropped call issue

    Like you my 9550 drops out calls daily and I would never receive a call longer than 5 seconds if I did not pull the battery and reboot. I did not pay all this money for this. Clearly RIM must take some action.

    Actually, just after my post I updated the software and never problem since.

    My Storm2 works PERFECT - not one issue.

    I was dropping calls and everytime I removed my BB from my pocket to answer a call (screen lock on) I would get disconnected.

    Upgraded to 517 and no more problems. Also eliminated SMS Java error.

    My S2 w/Tmobile has just started dropping calls or even not allowing me to place or receive calls. I've searched this site for hours, and have yet to find a resolution. Has anyone successfully reached a resolution to this PITA issue?

    Don't waste your time, already did that, reset it, let Verizon look at it, and did the *228 several times, mine just started doing it too. The new one does it the same. Not sure what the problem is, but it happens all day with every phone call now even with 4 -5 bars! It is ridiculous!

    I had this issue last week. I was on the phone with my girlfriend who had a 2 hour drive. In those 2 hours my phone dropped the call 10 times. After the 3rd one I watched my phone. I have full service in my house. The phone would go quiet I would watch the bars. It would go from full service to an X drop the call then go back to full service. I emailed Verizon about it, they called me back a few days later to ask me if I was still having the problem and I haven't but they wouldn't say what they did.

    On a side note my girlfriends Storm 2 has started going "mute" In the middle of a call my end goes silent. She can hear me but I can't hear her. I have to disconnect and call her back. We aren't sure whose phone is doing it because it only happens when we are talking.

    Does any one have this problem in Canada? I always hear about Iphones droping calls in the U.S. But never in Canada maybe its spreading to the Berries. It has got to be a network problem. I don't think the S2 has a dropped call problem.
