    It could be a coverage issue. Have you tried using the phone in different locations? Drive across town and see if the same thing happens.

    3g disconnects randomly GB .588

    I have the same problem. I am running .588 and I restored my data after coming from the original gb (.573) leak. I loose my 3g connection at least once a day. Sometime when I toggle the airplane mode it works and I connect back to 3g, but i that does not work I just reboot the phone. Anyone else having this issue? We need feedback to see if its a hardware or software issue in gb. The reason I cannot confirm if it is s/w or h/w issue I received a replacement phone when the .588 came out. I cannot compare both builds with same device. I am going to revert to .573 to see if it continues. I will post back with outcome.

    Thanks in advance

    Its not about the phone build. I am referring to the GB builds. .573 and .588.

    Its cool. GB = Gingerbread. There are several versions of OS, but for Droid X the official system is Froyo (2.2).

    Update:
    re-flashed GB. went two days with no signal problems, but this morning I lost my 3g connection. I have a feeling that it has to do with the hand-off between the wifi and 3g connection. I have tried to duplicate the issue but I cannot duplicate it. Also one thing I notice is when my 3g is not working and only shows the 4 grey bars I cannot make outgoing calls but calls do come in. Weird....
