    Evo 4g poor signal. Bad phone or bad flash?

    I purchased an HTC evo 4g from ebay. I rooted it and attempted to flash it but could only get internet and text. No calls or MMS. I took it to a shop and got it flashed. After I had to take it back twice, everything is now working. However my signal went to crap. I never had a problem with my old Huawei ascend. Now I am dropping calls and sometimes I cant even call out (network busy). I watched my signal bar go from full to no signal moving a few feet. Is this a bad or junk phone or could it be something with the flash?

    Thanks Mr E. looks like it was the flasher. I talked to the guy at cellflasher.com and he said it could be the prl. This could also explain the problem I had with the wrong time on my incoming text. I opened qpst and changed the prl. The mobile IP profile was also not setup up so I did that and had to make some changes to the PPP config. So far so good. . That was kinda a waste of $65 when I had to go back and fix it myself. Next time I cant figure it out I will find someone else. If you get a chance I would still like to know who is good in the area Mr E. That will definatlly come in handy next time.

    Never buy a fully flashed HTC phone on Craigslist without understanding that "YOU WILL NEED TO REFLASH MIP AND PPP". Having said that, you just need to follow the tutorial on HTC EVO flash and redo the settings.
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
