    So every time i leave a place where I am on WIFI, sometimes it can take up to 3-5 minutes before 3G service will kick on? anyone know why this happens?

    Its frustrating when it tells you there is no connection.

    How is the signal in your area? Perhaps something is blocking the signal.

    This happens "almost" everywhere i go. so its not that i don't have service.
