    I've been having major issues the past 3 days with the internet on my phone. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't work at all. Apps like Facebook will open, but content never loads - same thing goes for the web browser. My mobile data is turned on and I have a strong 3G signal so it's not something silly like that that I'm just overlooking. I also have no data problems when I connect to Wi-Fi and I've powered the phone off/on several times throughout the past couple days which only seems to fix the problem temporarily, if at all. I haven't downloaded or done anything weird to the phone that I can think of that would cause this.

    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

    Do you have juice defender or any other battery saver?

    No, I don't have any battery saver apps. Just Watchdog. Not sure if that falls into the battery saver category?

    What is ESN reset? Will that wipe everything out of my phone?

    I have the same issue. It's driving me absolutely nuts. 3G data connection is very, very flaky. I can't stream internet radio, market app doesn't work, anything needing a data connection is not working. I might have to factory reset the darn thing. (I did *228, didn't help.)
