    I am beginning to wonder about this myself. I have been on Gingerbread for awhile now, but I notice 3G issues. I can run Subsonic all day long with very few problems when I am on the road, but if I try to fire something up like Netflix, it will work splendidly for a few episodes and then it just bombs on me. I will back out to the home screen and see one of two things: my 3G symbol turns to 1X, or the 3G symbol is grey and showing no activity (unlike its usual blue color...)

    Makes me wonder if perhaps Verizon is indeed throttling our data when we use it a lot. Again, just a theory, and I could be way off, but I can't think of any other reason. It seems to happen most when I am using a lot of data (like streaming Netflix).

    How long do you put in airplane mode to be effective? I've tried a couple minutes and it wouldn't work. I figured if I had to wait longer, it could already be done rebooting. I'm curious to hear your experiences.

    I just turn it off and then back on, so no time at all really. If that doesnt work I reboot.

    Hmmm, yeah, on and off never worked for me. I guess I need to wipe and reflash. It happened again earlier this morning.

    Add the the list, my phone learned a new trick yesterday. I was using the Navigator and it kept dropping GPS. Id exit out of the navagation and go back in and be ok for about 5 minutes and lose GPS again. Airplane mode did not work, had to reboot and all was fine. Im gonna reflash and restore
