    Can you describe this problem further? Hanging?
    I never thought it was possible, but I even get full 3G service in the subway.

    I've got full service yet it won't load a full page. It stops at like 10% for example. It took me like 15 minutes to post something to my blog.

    Verizon swears this is not a network issue, either new or from yesterday...

    This seems to be a continuation of vzw's data problems from yesterday.

    Matthew hit up hookbill. IIRC he was having the same problem on his rooted device.

    He can offer more insight I_think_

    OK...this is what solved my problem.

    turned off the phone....pulled the battery....and rebooted. 3G is flying now back in the 1600's and low 1700's KBs d-load speeds

    Just rebooted, turned off/on. That's all it needed.

    I've done the same thing. Pulling the battery and resetting. I'm having extreemly choppy service in places where I have 3 and 4 bars of 3g and use to have no problems with connections... man verizon is reallly letting me down!

    I get this problem frequently and also I get the issue with the 3G icon disappearing until I go into airplane mode or wait like 15 minutes. I think theres just too much traffic on Verizon in my area.
