    If I interpret your description correctly your phone is syncing. Are you using WiFi or do you have a good strong signal?

    The ring means 1X data connection on Sprint/Verizon. You're not in a good coverage area for data and it may seem that your internet isn't working because 1X is VERY slow.

    Switch to Verizon or AT&T for the iPhone 5. Verizon's 3G is at least manageable, and AT&T's is very serviceable. And when you're on LTE you'll wonder how you lived without it. Sprint's speeds are abysmal at best.

    I agree 100%. I had the same issue on Sprint. I finally got tired of them telling me they're going through network optimization & I switched to Verizon. Best decision I made!!!

    That was the one reason why I left Sprint. I couldn't get anything faster than 1x on my BB. I had a BB brand paperweight. Calls wouldn't come thru, no texts. Nothing. I never got 3G on my BB unless I was outside with my hand on a cell tower.

    Verizon is better as far as coverage goes.

    I totally agree with all the posters answers to the OP. I have always been on Verizon Wireless and even with my 4S I have fast service even on 3G.

    I'm with VZW and I have noticed that I get the ring as well alot more now since updating to iOS6. Its the exact same areas that i've been in with previous iOS and didnt have any problems, or maybe i'm just noticing it alot more now since the update bc i'm always looking at it. But either way it is annoying!

    I get it much more now as well. I notice it in areas of my travel on the interstate and I never dropped 3G in those areas. I never updated my 4S to IOS6 prior to getting my 5, so I cannot attribute it specifically to IOS6 or the radios in the 5. Either way, it sucks. But, when I am in LTE all is well. Edit: I have Verizon as my carrier.

    All my friends with sprint iPhones have the ring issue and terrible data speeds.

    I do have a verizon iPhone an the ring rarely appears. Only when I travel to the middle of nowhere.

    I'd offer unlimited data too if my network sucked. Sprint was ok when the others were equal or worse. Both AT&T and Verizon improved while Sprint sat around making bad decisions. Even a blind person could see wimax was not going to end well.
