Android eh 3g symbol


Anyone with a Droid losing their 3G signal randomly?

I bought my Motorola Droid in the store on February 19th, and it has been working perfectly up until recently. The week before last, I noticed my Droid losing the 3G connection randomly, and going to 1X only. It would never lose the connection entirely, but it would become very slow. I tweaked just about every setting imaginable, and the problem still occurs. The frequency at which it occurs has become daily now.

Last week, my phone has starting LOSING the 3G connection randomly. The 3G icon will go off completely, and all apps that use data will give connection errors. Switching to airplane mode, and switching back again will NOT fix the problem. The only solution I have found is to reboot the phone completely.

If the 3G connection gets dropped, you can enable wifi as a temporary solution… however it should be noted that you can still receieve text messages. The wireless signal meter in the status bar will show either 1 or 5 bars… usually never anything in-between. I can also make and receive phone calls, but no data whatsoever.

I have noticed that the problem seems to occur more often when I’m using the “Seesmic” app… however the 3G connection will drop randomly even if I’m not running Seesmic. I have removed the Seesmic app from my phone, and have turned off background data and GPS.

I am really at a loss for what to do here. I have dialed both *228 and *22882 (whatever the longer number was) and programmed my phone MANY times. Both these things don’t seem to help at all. The only thing I haven’t done yet is factory reset the phone, and I really hope it doesn’t come to that. Does anyone know how to fix this?
