With posts like that you will take very little time to become disliked here. If we have to decipher your sentences due to English not being your primary language or other possible reasons....fine.

To spell like an idiot because you think its entertaining or 'cute'.... your sadly mistaken.

Why not head over to XDA? See if you can find something there. If it is an issue with the phone itself, then you can bet someone there has experienced it. If it is your location/carrier, you might be able to find another radio for it.

I hated my Samsung fascinate. Took forever for to get firmware upgrades, End Call would never end the call, and it would freeze up like crazy. I left my iPhone 3G for it. Regretted it like crazy. Replaced it with an iPhone 4. My oh my, feels good to have reliability.

Dont know much about the phone you have but maybe you just picked a bad phone.

Samsung Galaxy, Samsung Epic Touch, Samsung Charge, they all have issues. I don't live in the same city as my friends anymore. If you do a google search about the issue it's pretty widespread.

Even the reps at Verizon are warning people about it now due to all the returns they've been getting. My buddy returned his Epic 3 times and finally gave up and threw it in the garbage and bought a different brand all together.

Even so, that still doesn't mean you should shun an entire company for some products that have been faulty. My Nexus S is still going strong, and my HTC's data has only been going funky when some of the ROMs I use change the APN addresses for whatever reason. Apart from that, it works flawlessly.

Also regarding radios, if you're rooted you can flash different radios for whatever region you're in. (For HTC at least)
I think it's more or less widespread knowledge that stock stuff is utter garbage most of the time. WizTouch is a shocking interface imo, but that's purely an opinion based on the five minutes I had using it.

If you are having network issues, its not the phone, more likely the carrier. Cause most of our Samsung phone on Sprint is pretty good. Hardly any complaints on the Samsung smartphone Sprint carries. Just saying not trying to get you to switch or anything.

Wasn't aware you could flash radio's? How does that even work, better worked firmware or something? I thought it would be related to crappy hardware.

This here is what i immediately thought... Sounds more like a carrier issue to me considering you're complaining about the Data not working and the GPS...you're both on Verizon, so perhaps their coverage is to blame, not the hardware of the phone

Havnt had good luck with other Samsung products and i personally try to avoid them, But I'm likely getting a Samsung phone and giving them a chance to prove they've changed...
