When using the wireless hotspot feature, there are times when the phone will disconnect from the 3G network with the message "3G data connection lost" in the top status bar, and the 3G icon disappears. After 5-10 seconds, it will reconnect and then disconnect after 3-4 seconds. Some details:
I have full signal, 4 bars.
This does not happen when using the phone browser.
I am connected to a VZW tower.
This has happened in two different states.
The WiFi connection to the computer does not drop.
This is the only WiFi connection in range.
This happens with either a secure or open WiFi connection.
This problem seems to happen most when I have multiple browser tabs open. It happens least (actually never) when I'm playing a MMORPG. Only a reboot of the phone seems to solve the problem, and sometimes not even then.
I have contacted VZW tech support, and they don't have a solution for me.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? If so, what has been your experience with VZW support, or have you resolved the issue on your own?
