Have you tried a different kernel? The kernel is in a separate flash, so 
upgrading the root filesystem
doesn't change the kernel, it must be installed separately. It could help - if 
it is a kernel problem.

If nothing helps, consider trying a different phone company. The problem could 
be there too.
