    I usually get 3g all day at my desk at work, but today it keeps going back and forth between 3g and 1x. Can't even browser much it's way too slow. Turned my phone on and off three times and still same. What could be causing this...its very annoying lol

    Could be a tower issue or network issue. Call VZW and ask about your area.

    I'll wait and see how it is tommorow and make a call.

    I read elsewhere that VZW is cutting people's signal strenght that use too much data? How do I even check how much I am using...all I do is mainly browse the web an occasionaly download of an mp3 or picture and that's about it.

    Not signal strength, they will throttle back your data speeds so you can't use too much bandwidth on the network. From the description of what you do, you don't have to worry about that.

    Might not do anything, but make a *228 option 2 call to update your PRL.

    You can check your data usage with the My Verizon app. I lost internet connection at my place during a snow storm and tethered my Droid Eris to watch tv streams. I used 13GB in 2 days on America's Got Talent

    Also you could check verizonwireless.com but you should probably use your WiFi if available instead of the 3G. Most land connections are way faster than the .5Mbps you get through Big Red

    This has been happening a lot to me at home its pathetic and annoying. I used to have four bars download speeds of 2.5 mbps now it went down to 500kbps. And it goes to 1x so often I began to hate the number one and letter x.

    It updates your phone to use the Verizon towers effectively. It may help if Verizon has made any changes to the local towers in your area.

    If it's a Verizon iPhone, then yes.
