    I was wondering if anyone else has been having issues with there signal? The last week or two mine is almost gone (3G). I had full bars at work in 3G and had no problem surfing the web or listeninto pandora. Now I hardly ever get a 3G signal. Pandora will open play part of a song then stop and try to find the signal. I switch from AT&T because I couldn't use my phone at work or at home now im getting the same crappy sevice. Any one what's going on? By the way im in southeastern wisconsin. And when I got the phone I had great coverage at work and at home!!!

    For the first time since I got my DX (mid December) my signal was at 1G for a short while at the office some time earlier this week. But it's always at 3G otherwise.
    Still, I'm suspicious as to why all the sudden it went down. I've just never seen it do that.

    I tried this and irt seems to work. Dial*228 and select option 2 let it do its thing and it will tell you when you done.

    This has been reported a few times in these forms, find that interesting.

    A few weeks ago my DX would get nothing but 1x. I did the *228 option 1 (recently found out about option 2), nothing worked. Finally pulled my batt for close to 20 minutes, put it back in, now all is well.

    I too have seen alot of signal drops and changes with my DX. Do you think it may have something to do with them working on the towers getting them ready for the 4G LTE network and the new releases coming out errrhmmmm THE THUNDERBOLD AND BIONIC :) :)

    Whatever is causing this sigal issues is dealt pu$$ing me off! If it them workin on some towers they should know something when u call CS. I really hope this has nothing to do with the massive amount of Iphones.........
