    Already tried the typical solutions (reboots, Airplane Mode toggle, *228)?

    What's your signal strength? Are you in the same unenviable position I'm in that I'm located smack-dab between two towers at a distance of about 2.5-miles each way so you get some insane tower reflection?

    Ditched the purple tights and carrot for the green tights and light bulb for a few? Haha!
    I thought your signal issue got fixed?

    Most of the time my signal is better, but on nights like tonight it's pretty bad.

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    I had issues with 3g about a week ago. Would not go into 3g at all, just 1x. Fix for me was to pull the battery on it. Left it out for a drive home that took 20 minutes. When I plugged it back it all was good.

    I did the *228 cuz that's always my first option but Im thinking it was because of juice defender. I think it was toggleing it when I wasn't using my phone and when it was off so it wasn't coming back on properly I turn juice defender off and it seems to ne good now...I hope

    Juice Defender is a waste of time 90% of the time. :)
