    Every night my droids 3G network shuts down at 11:00 pm. This has been happening for the past month. Verizon doens't have any solution. Does anyone know what is going on?

    If you don't know what it is then you're not doing it. :) Tethering is sharing your phone's 3G data connection with your PC/other device.

    I've done some exhaustive research into that's been causing 3G cutouts during tethering, so I might have been able to offer some suggestions.

    Okay, it's cutting out. Is it exactly at 11PM every night?

    not only does my 3g go out but my call quality goes down as well, not at 11 pm but late late nights it does shutter, so your not alone buddy...

    i complained to verizon about this in the past, they said they see no towers down in my area and that everything looks fine on their systems, now my call quality is not as bad but it still sux compared to daytime...

    Both of you, what's your signal strength when this happens? Do you know how to find that?

    12:00 AM and my signal strength is -94 with full bars and full 3g but.......if i make/take a call, boy does it have static and go in and out. daytime calls are crystal clear!

    in the day i think its around -60 so yea it does change definitely, but according to you know who everything is fine...smh...

    4 bars is nice, but it's not a measure of actual signal strength. Get into your settings, go to the about phone section, then check the status. you should have a "Signal strength" listed. What does it say for dBm?

    That's NOT a good signal strength. Have you reprogrammed your phone lately? And check your signal tomorrow during the day a couple times when you're home. If you get -60ish dBm then you have a MAJOR fault and you should call Verizon and complain about the numbers. If you get lucky you might get a replacement phone to test to see if it's the phone or the network. If it IS the network then you can call and complain. Never know what might happen -- just remember to send one of the phones back as $500 is a tough nut to swallow. :)
