Recent data problems
Recently I flashed to Pete's all in one baseband update to the .43.01p. Last week, everything was fine. Had good reception for data and everything. But since yesterday my 3G only works when it wants. I have tried*22899 about 3 times today and still nothing. Other than this the phone works great, no time traveling to 1969 or an unknown baseband. Just the 3G wont work.
I am running BB 1.1 using bekit 7v 1100. Would switching to a Froyo ROM fix this or is it something more?
Re: Recent data problems
It really could be a few things....tower issues, area network issues, might try a froyo ROM just to see, but I don't think that will help. Could try flashing back to the old baseband.

Alright, I think it might be more then towers because I was having problems in Raleigh and Greensboro and they are a good 70miles from each other. I will try flashing the ROM first, and then if it still persists I will flash the previous baseband (.3p or the .00 ?) tomorrow and report what happens.
Agree with Jason. Try another rom or restore your backup and see how that impacts your 3G. Let us know how you make out.
Well here's the update. I tried to flash Chevy's Froyo ROM but when it went to install it it said it couldn't open the file. So I reloaded my current ROM and, using the update.zip method, installed the .03 baseband. Got it activated and dialed *22899. I will post any changes tomorrow because where I am at now is not a very reliable service spot, regardless of what my baseband is. So stay tuned to update 2, guaranteed to arrive on schedule and faster then any software update:biggrin:.
So here's the update. As I mentioned earlier I reverted back to the .03 baseband and it has been relatively smooth sailing. Consistent connectivity with the exception of a few places. But as mentioned, they are bad regardless. So I guess my phone doesn't like the new update. But when I get around to flasing a Froyo ROM I will attempt the new update and post those results when I get to that.
Thank-you for the quick replies and help.
Just want to chime in and say this thread really saved the day for me. I recently moved to North Raleigh and my reception has been dismal. The phone has been almost unusable at my apartment. I went back to the old 03P baseband, and now I have 3-4 bars. So happy right now!
