Data Connectivity Issues?

So did anybody else get this on release day and end up with major data issues?
I got the phone about 1pm and thankfully decided to eat lunch in the same plaza, as I realized the data was not connecting, despite showing 4/5 bars and "4G LTE" I went back to the store and explained the issue. They played with the phone and admitted it was not working right. They swapped the SIM, still nothing. They swapped the phone, now spotty at best but still freezing, so they tried yet another SIM. While this is going on, a guy comes in to exchange his SGII for the Skyrocket and his initial use is showing the same issues.
I asked for a refund, and they are going to give it to me, but they asked me to keep it a few days and they'd waive any re-stocking fe...

Using the Skyrocket as a GPS

Does anyone have physical expierence using the Skyrocket as a stand-alone GPS.?? I hope to go exploring some mountains, the Appalachian Trail, and other Rural areas where there is No Cell phone coverage from any carriers. Does this phone allow you to utilize it as a stand-alone GPS, when you are way out-of range of cell towers.??

Voice dialing

Purchased the Skyrocket a month ago and have been trying to2 get it to voice dial over blue tooth. The ATT store said it didn't have that feature and to use the BlueAnt Q2 which incorperates that feature. After purchasing it I found it didn't work. Called tech support and they said that the phone supports voice command dialing but it is blocked by ATT which will sell the service. In this day an age it should be mandatory for hands free driving. I feel as if I have been had

DM initialization is not ready. Check network or SIM

I purchased this phone on January 2nd, and it worked fine. About 1 1/2 weeks ago it began showing the "DM initialization is not ready. Check network or SIM" whenever I tried to check for a software update. I took it to the AT&T store today and they replaced the SIM card with a 4G LTE SIM card; however, when I tried to check for a software update a few minutes ago, it gave me the same message so I had to restart the phone in order to complete the process. Does anyone have a clue what could be causing this error? The phone is not rooted.

Turning off 4G?

Has anyone found a way to disable 4g from being on constantly and sucking the life out of the battery? Are there any decent apps out there that will do the trick?

Rebooting Issue?

Hi everyone,

I just recently purchased this phone for my boyfriend and we have been experiencing random rebooting with it. Has anyone else had this issue? I tried to take it back to ATT and they gave me some problems which I don't want to get into because it's a complicated situation, so before things get even messier with trying to exchange the phone, I was wondering if anyone had any solutions to this problem?

LTE 700 / 1700

Does this lead anyone else to believe that an AT&T/MetroPCS LTE roaming deal is in the works?

I know I posted in the AT&T forum about this, but this is relevant here as well D:

Can anyone verify if Speakerphone is half or full duplex?

Phone scoop lists the speaker phone as only "half;duplex," but lists the speaker phone for the galaxy S2 (SGH-i777) as "full-duplex." Can anyone verify what the Skyrockets (SGH-i727) phone is? I am not sure I trust the information on Phone Scoop when I can't verify this anywhere else.
