    Missing 3G Symbol

    Anyone missing the 3G signal when you wake the phone up? Mine is gone. Nothing there like 1X or anything. It does come back but is this normal? Was it happening earlier and I'm just now noticing it? Weird.

    as far as I know, its normal, probably because the phone is turning off the cellular data. check your battery profile and see what it says about turning off data. That's my guess, but its only a guess..... mine does it to.

    I changed the battery profile to smart mode.

    Yeah if you don't need an active data call it'll be either dormant or torn down if it's been long enough. No reason to lock-up RAN resources if they're not needed. You should find that if you're in coverage when you click on something that needs a data call that you get the 3G symbol right away.

    If you are connected to Wifi the 3G symbol will go away until you disconnect from Wifi.

    What does it mean when you're on Wifi and the 3G icon comes back? I have been on Wifi all day at home, but the 3G icon has mysteriously returned...any ideas? The Wifi seems to be working fine otherwise (my laptop is connected to the internet), so I don't know why the Droid X would be maintaining both connections.

    I leave my profile on performance. It helps with the signal strength.
