    Hey guys I am having a one issue with my Ativ S Neo and I am unsure what I should do to solve the issue.

    So my issue is that whenever I am connected to my WiFi my phone works perfectly fine and has no issues, but as soon as I connect to my 3g/4g data with no WiFi connection my phone tends to lag a bit. To give you an idea of what kind of lag I am facing: when I open an app it will open just like any other app but it will freeze to a black background and just show the name of the app while it seems to be opening. Another issue is when I am typing on my keyboard it will freeze on a certain key and sometimes it will bring up the alternatives so like if I am typing and hit the A key and it freezes it will show all the alternatives for A. Also when I play games there are some small lags throughout the game caused by this issue. I been trying to figure out when this lag happens and I think it is whenever my phone switches from 3g to 4g service but I am unsure. Again this issue only happens when I am not connected to my WiFi. Also when I open a text message thread the phone dims really low then goes back to it's normal brightness... It is set to auto brightness so I haven't tested this one with just a standard brightness level.

    A few trouble shooting that I did was: I thought it was my SD card at first, because I have a 32 gb PNY micro sd card and it was a class 10. I took it out for a bit and at first I thought I solved the issue but it continued to happen. I thought it might be an app so I deleted all my apps including my games and it still happens. I can't really figure out what the issue is so I think it might be an issue with my actual phone. I was thinking about waiting till Windows Phone 8.1 to see if the issue will be fixed with an update. I have also done a hard reset using the reset option in the about settings in the phone along with the button combination, but still seems no way to solve it. I am pretty lost about what to actually do with the phone. I am unsure if anyone else has a similar issue, but maybe if one of you do hopefully knows the issue to fix it with.. I can record the issue if need be so just let me know.

    Anyway I appreciate any help and thanks in advance

    Sounds like an issue with your carrier. Sprint?

    Sprint in my area has extremely poor coverage. Were you using Sprint without problems before you got the Ativ?

    never had issues with my HTC Arrive, and I didn't have issues with my Ativ S Neo for about a week that I had it so I guess it really does make sense it is a sprint issue

    Just an update I got a new phone from Sprint, but after reading about some issues with Skype and Windows Phone 8 I decided to uninstall it and the phone works beautifully. So yeah I guess I will try Skype again when I update to Windows Phone 8.1
