    3g randomly turning off, help

    i've been rooted since the day root became available, tried out a few roms, where always buggy so i basically just stuck with stock 2.0.1 with 2.1 apks without any problems. then overclocking came out and i installed the custom boot images for 900mhz. worked great. then all of the sudden my 3g would randomly shut off and it would require a reboot to get the network back up. when droidmod 1.0 came out i installed that and it runs beautifully but now my 3g is randomly shutting off more than ever. atleast 6-10 times a day. anyone have this problem? any suggestions on how to fix it? it's getting really annoying. thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.

    It may not have anything to do with the root at all. I had a problem with no 3G and no service for 4 days. I don't know what the problem was but I called Verizon and explained what was going on. They wrote up a ticket and it was suppose to be fixed in 48 hours. 48 hours took 96 hours but they did fix the issue.


    Are you having this problem everywhere or just in one area?

    everywhere, i live about 30 minutes away from where i work and i get the same problem at my house, at my job, to and from my job. when i boot up the 3g will stay on for a couple of minutes and then just go back out again. also having extremely bad battery life, don't think there's a connection but that's equally as annoying.

    Edit: grammar

    I had the same problem with an older sholes rom (I guess it's called DroidMod, now), so I stopped using it. Try a different rom and see if you have better results. I'm currently using Bugless Beast 0.7.6 and have no problems.

    First you said it was just fine with no rom - which one is it?

    then overclocking came out and i installed the custom boot images for 900mhz. worked great. then all of the sudden my 3g would randomly shut off and it would require a reboot to get the network back up.
    Custom kernel is effectively the same thing as a rom - a rom just includes some app changes, various tweaks, and perhaps a theme IN ADDITION to the custom kernel. Things like the radio are only going to be affected by kernel changes.

    Like I said - try a different one (rom - but if you want to try just the kernel, feel free. They are a little harder to find information about stability, though)

    When you say 3g turning off, do you mean you're losing data completely or you're just getting downgraded to 1x?

    Ive been loosing 3g randomly and going down to 1x without root on sholes 2.05, 2.06 and droidmod 1.0... and BB. I think VZW is just having issues over the past few weeks as my dad has been loosing 3g on his BB storm in a completely different state. Weird thing is Im barley seeing any decrease in speed when it goes to 1x.
