    dial *228 and reactivate your phone, if that doesnt work try a factory reset and then retry the *228, and then finally if you still dont have 3g go into a verizon store and dont leave until they fix your issue

    Remember the first step in fixing a phone take out the battery and put it back in

    Doing *22899 has always fixed the 3G disappearance for me. (which I've gotten once or twice after flashing a new rom).

    is it normal to lose 3g service? My Droid goes in and out of 3g service for a few minutes at a time almost daily.

    Not unusual if you're in a fringe coverage area.

    An area with limited coverage - like 1-2 bars of reception (or none). That'll cause you to lose 3g.
