    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.

    Walking a few blocks may not help. Drive a few miles and check it. If you still don't see 3G then there may be an issue with the Droid.

    If it's just in your area, call Verizon and they will set up a trouble ticket for you. It happened to me once and they did fix it. It took about 4 days. Thank God for wifi.

    I have noticed the last week or so that if I am in an area with very weak signal or 3G service, it drops it altogether. the only way to get it back when I am back in a service area is to restart my phone. Sometimes with a battery pull, but usually the power cycling works. The thing for me is, for how much I paid for this phone, it should work correctly all the time, every time. It just kind of makes me mad.
