    Is anyone, besides me, having problems with Verizon's most reliable 3G network?

    My connectivity goes in and out. Verizon says that they are not having any issues.

    I've done ALL the resets and even set it back to the original factoy settings.

    I am using a NON rooted phone.

    Thanks in advance.

    No. But it doesn't mean you're not.

    So to figure this out I have to ask you, does this happen to you everywhere you go or primarily at home or work? Are you seeing 1x? Or are you not getting a signal at all, is it just dropping off completely?

    Hookbill, It only happens at home. I go no where, don't have a life LOL.
    Just a few minutes ago the 3G icon completely went away and was replaced with a white circle outlined in red with a red line going through. This only happened for about a second then the 3G popped back in.

    More than likely, its the coverage at your home. Assuming you've already updated your PRL (*228) right?

    I'm in central Ohio. Verizon says they have no trouble tickets in the area.

    I'm in Virginia, so it's probably unrelated, but I'm getting tired of it.

    Anyone else in the household on another network? Do they have issues?

    I live in Blacksburg VA and VZW 3G has been in and out a lot in the last few weeks to a month. I figured it Just had something to do with LTE implementation. Also, it wasn't just me. My roommate on a DX and other friends on non-Android devices from VZW noticed it down alot too.

    Happens to me all the time too. Grr. They just set me back to factory default today in the store, which did nothing but delete all my text messages, apps, and settings and in general, annoy the crap out of me. Still dropping. Ugh.

    mines been doing this a fair amount lately. where the 3g will disconnect, and that red line with the circle will come up. sometimes it'll drop from 3g to 1x randomly for reasons i don't know, because ive always had great service in my area. my mom has a blackberry and my dad has an lg vortex, and when this happened to my phone i asked my parents how their signal was and they both had 3g with a good 3 bars of connection. so it must be a phone issue.

    I've noticed the same thing since they" upgraded" their system to accommodate the iPhone integration. And they did just publicly release a notice that heavy bandwith users will be "throttled back" to allow the massive influx of new users. That, in reality, will affect everybody. It doesn't seem plausible to go through the entire system to pinpoint single users of heavy useage. But areas of the network (e.g. between specific towers) can be regulated.

    Same problem here. I travel all over and my phone will be using 3G and then it will just drop off for 30 seconds to a minute and then it will start using it again. Very annoying.

    My D2 has done this since I have owned it. 3G w/ 4 bars, drops to 1x with 1. Then seconds later I am back up and normal. It seems to hunt on occasion. Once in a blue moon I have had to resort to toggling Airplane mode on and off to get it to send data! I think it is a phone issue (early production run) if memory serves me correctly. IDK.
