    Anyone else experiencing random loss and complete drop of 3g and cell signal since the GB update?

    Try doing a data wipe.

    I am having the same issue, not sure if it started around the same time as the GB updae or not. FWIW, I did not take the update, either.

    Yes, I'm not certain that it is the GB, as I did experience this problem before.

    Will doing a data wipe erase all my apps?

    Yes. It will erase everything except your SD card. Turn the phone off, hold the home and power buttons until a little ! appears. Release the buttons and hold the 2 volume keys to enter recovery. Choose data reset with the volume keys and select it with the power button. Also wipe your cache. Then reboot.

    I don't know if a data wipe will do it, I've been seeing crappy coverage for almost a month now to where I had a strong signal before I'm rolling over to edge. It might be associated more with 3g and 4g being in the same area rather than gingerbread.

    That could make sense. That's about the same timeframe that I have noticed it, too.

    I'm getting the same problem. Started yesterday for me. Low bars, 3g dropping out, lost calls.

    I've had the GB leak for a long time and it just started happening.

    Now I took a drive to the grocery store 3 miles away. PERFECT 3g service.

    When I got back into my neighborhood it was back to no 3g or any service at all.


    WTF

    Reboot

    I too am seeing this... and I've been wondering if it started with GB.

    For me, 3G and 1X both go away.. i.e. no data service. And the remaining bars tend to be very low.

    I take this occasion to reboot, and that seems to resolve the problem.

    Some people recommend rebooting daily. To me that sounds like a very immature operating system... Reminds me of Windows 95/98. The Linux Kernel is VERY mature, but it seems that something in Android isn't. They've got a memory leak, or something wrong.

    Hope it gets resolved.
