    I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I've only had my Droid for 2 days, and the newest problem I'm experiencing is an inability to get 3G. It was working fine, then I was in the Market and it went away. Now I can't get it back. I'm in my home, in a major metropolitan city. My last phone (a blackberry) was also on Verizon, and I never had a problem getting 3G in my home. My partner still has a blackberry on Verizon, and he's getting a 3G signal right now, so I know it's not an outage.

    I read elsewhere that it might have something to do with my battery settings, but even in performance mode I can't get the "3G" to show up in my status bar at the top. My wifi is working fine. I have tried turning the phone off and restarting. Nothing seems to be working.

    Any advice? Thanks in advance

    sorry for bumping this, but my 3G is STILL not back, several hours later. Does anyone know what's up with this?

    Try *2289. Wait 20 minutes and if it is not back do a battery pull then do part 1 again.

    Hi Lumpy, and thanks. What do you mean by "try *2289?"

    When my wifi is connected i don't see the 3g up top either but I'm definitely connected. I can't recall ever seeing both wifi and 3g at the same time but may have not paid attention.

    Until it went out this afternoon, I was seeing both whenever I was at home. Maybe I wasn't supposed to?

    I never see 3G while connected to a wifi.
    *2289 re-activates your phone.
    Just doing a battery pull has helped me in the past.

    Remove all taks killers, but if you have no 3G in a particular area and are getting it in other areas (I'm not sure if you mentioned where the problem was) then you can call Verizon and they will do a trouble ticket for you. It takes about 4 days and they will have someone come out and check your signal to see if there is an issue at the towers.

    Take a 3 mile drive and see if you're getting 3G in that area. If so, it's probably the tower issue I described above.
