    Have you tried powering down and restarting? I had to do that earlier today. I couldn't get my phone to make a call or receive 3g service. A restart fixed it.

    Have you tried moving from your current location to try and pick up another cell tower?

    I lose my 3g all the time, but that is mainly after i have either been A) tethering for a long time or B) surfing the internet for like 6 hours straight. a restart gets it back. What rom you running? still PlainJane? I am running Froyo and it only does it to me with this rom.....

    Tried restarts. Tried turning mobile off, then on. Going into plane mode, then back out. Nothing.

    Went to bed with phone on charger. Woke up, and woke phone up. 3G started working has worked ever since.

    Weird things was that my wifes's unrooted eris had 3G last night.

    You might want to post something up in the droid general help section since this is the eris forum and you have a new 4g phone. You will get better exposure there.
