    Lately my 3g has been dropping like crazy and it seems to be happening more frequently as time passes. I'm noticing it at home mostly but really it happens reguardless of where I'm at. With my Droid1 this pretty much never happened. Anyone else having this problem? Wondering if its a software problem or a problem with my phone...

    Same here.. my 3G goes off when I put it to sleep, then takes like 1-2minutes to come back on. If not that, even longer.

    My Dinc2 has been dropping off and on into 1X a ton as well. Really getting annoying.

    Just had this start happening with my D3 last night. I even did a reprogram to establish the tower signal again and it didn't get any better.

    Well, mine started after downloading JuiceDefender(at least that was my hunch), after uninstalling it, it's working fine now.

    For me its quite random when it happens. I may try a factory reset but does anyone know if that also erases the internal sdcard?

    Stuff on your SDcard will stay, as well as ur apps from internal storage being restored once you put ur gmail account back on. Usually all or most should be restored and redownloaded right away, sometimes it doesn't happen though.

    When you do a factory reset on the D3, you have to uncheck the option to erase the internal sdcard right before you commit to getting the factory reset started.

    Had 3g issues here as well. Called verizon they are sending a replacement. You guys should call it in. The tech I talked to said he hasn't heard anything about these issues. He could have been playing dumb. But it took about 3 calls and a hard reset.

    Everytime it happened and everybody around me had great signal I would just call in. 1-800-922-0204.

    are you getting brand new or Refurbished Droid 3 from Verizon ?

    I think 14 days period, you're suppose to get brand new droid 3 instead of Refurbished
