Samsung tech support on phone suggested I try replacing SIM card.  Has anybody tried that?  Does it help?

done that, got worst, ##7 something, PRL updaate, software update(which claim thats what mess the phone up first place) restore, reset, firmware update, only thing seem to work kinda is band25 and 41 disable, but thats becuz those band is having issue, and 26 is working so far but gettting very slow LTE. kinda same thing like how the phone start having issue. and sprint doesnt know how to fix it, best buy doesnt know how to fix it, samsung is well dont think they know either, i think after all this research and what i went thru, the update came out a week and half ago cuz the phone issue, and i believe theres sometime hardware issue that they may already know about, and they are trying to patch it, but it fail, and made things worst, now they r trying to come up a way to fix it, some had replace motherboard and it is fix, some have replace the phone been fix, but some replace the phone didnt get fix.  so this is where it at.

i just find this

 

Sprint released an update to address the issue with the software version ASC8 on March 27. However, if connectivity loss persists despite the update, then the device is in "permanent Voice/Data loss," as the carrier puts it, and it has to be exchanged for a new unit.

Yes, that "solution" has been out for a while.  Unfortunately, no one will process an exchange.  Sprint says wait for another update, Best Buy says it's past 14 days, Sammy says mail your phone in.

This is a known issue,  and nothing do with data saver or whatever.  Google it.  I've been through tech support hades for 3 days,  then at a sprint store the manager told me there's nothing they can do until Samsung releases an update.  He suggested trying to disable band 41. "Enter Data Programming Mode: ##3282# Edit -> Enter MSL: 000000 -> OK -> LTE -> Band41 Enabled -> Deselect -> Reboot" but he would not do it himself for liability reasons.  Pure bs

MODS - We're almost at 50 pages on this issue.  Any new advice on how to get our $1,000 flagship paperweights to work as phones?  Current unreasonable solutions are: 1) just wait longer for somone to send out a reliable update, or 2) mail in your 1 month old flagship paperweight to a repair center and be without access to a phone for atleast 2 weeks.
