My phone keeps saying "Searching" on top, and because of that I think it's causing my phone to lag. Buttons become unresponsive and so do tapping on them on screen. It starts freezing up and I think it's because it's attempting to get a signal with Sprint.


This problem did not happen yesterday but it has started today. I have done the factory reset and started it up again with the same problem.


Please advise.

    Have you contacted Sprint?  What did Sprint say?

    Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new).  Have all of these been tried?
