    This is a serious issue. Does anybody have a fix?

    Here is the radar I submitted:

    Summary:
    Even in areas of perfect 3G coverage, the Sprint iPhone 4s is stuck on "1x" signal on iOS 9.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Connect to Sprint network

    Expected Results:
    Depending on coverage area, the phone should show anywhere between "No Service" all the way to 5 bars of 3G.

    Actual Results:
    The phone will only work at up to 5 bars of "1x" signal, even in areas of perfect 3G coverage.

    Version:
    iOS 9.0 (13A4293g)

    If it is your primary phone I would wait till close to the end of beta to try otherwise wait for few more betas to get it corrected or may not get corrected, at ios 8.4, I do not care about bars, as long as the phone works that is what count. This is how Sprint works.

    3G signal strength is lousy. What is that meant. If you feel comfortable with your phone on beta, then fine, forget everything else.

    The only major issue I'm having is this one with 1x. And 3G isn't really lousy when it's all my iPhone can support.

    Good. I will wait till just prior to general release time, to install ios 9, because it is my only daily use phone.
