    When I pull the battery I can send and receive a 3G signal for about 20 mins. When I go into a area with no 3G service, I can get 1x sending and receiving. I can successfully navigate the internet through my home wifi connection as well. I am not in a 4g area. I have not rooted my phone or put any apps on there that were not from the apps store.

    If you are running a custom rom that might be the problem. Like Capt.D said the up 3g arrow means that you are just sending data and not receiving it. I have had this problem on occasion with my Droid X running a custom rom.

    reseated the sim on the batt pull, i will have to wait for a while untill i can get to a 3g area. It does seem to work for a couple minutes after a batt pull and then only send 3g and not recieve.

    Download "phone info" from the market. Change your phone to "cdma auto (prl)". See if that helps.
