Hi,

For the past week i have been making long calls, and exactly on the 2 hour mark the phone drops out without fail.

I was wondering if there is something to configure to fix this or is this just how the product works for whatever reason?

Quite annoying having to ring back and i've never faced this issue with any other mobile device.
The phone is a 3gs

Thanks

Have shorter conversations? I kid I kid. :)

Has to be a network thing. If it is indeed at two hours every single time.

I'm on the Vodafone 3g network.
It sucks it teases for 2 hours then BAM decides not to.
Thing is, when it cuts out, i have full service and whatever remaining battery.

I have heard about it on Wind, Rogers and a few others. Never heard a "why" ...just heard it was a network thing.

It's crappy :( Maybe in the near future there will be a resolution

I live in Michigan near the Canadian border and my friends over the border have complained about it. I haven't run into it in the states but I hardly ever use my phone as a phone. Vodafone...isn't that the UK or something?

Some carriers have limits, to avoid someone losing their phone, or falling asleep and running out their minutes. On Sprint, it's 3 hours and 55 minutes.
