    I have had my droid x (rooted) for about 3 days now and I started having problems with my 3g. I run my xbox live with wifi tether and it worked perfect with my rooted droid 1 and it worked for the first day with my rooted droid x, but now for some reason my 3g keeps turning off in like 10-15 min. I've noticed it also turn off while I was just using the browser on the phone. I've noticed on other threads that other people are having 3g problems. I was wondering if there was any settings I can play around with. Or if anyone has found a solution to this. Any info would be really helpful

    It sounds like a network issue rather than a phone issue. Have you tried *228 option #2 to update your roaming files?

    *228 gets you into the ota programing / updating roaming of the phone from Verizon. #1- programs your phone to allow you to connect with the network, #2 updates roaming. Just dial *228 and listen to the prompts

    What is rebooting, the phone?

    Are you rooted and if so are you running a custom rom? Try booting into recovery and clearing cache, it should clear up the reboot issue. My 3g signal is very low right now too so it could easily be the network.

    Well I restored my phone and im going to re root it right now. And I called my friend who also has a droid x and he said his 3g has been a little weird. So its probably Verizon. I also read something that there doing things to there towers to upgrade there 4g so its probably messing with our 3g
