Hey all,

First post here and I've looked elsewhere to see if others are having the same issues that myself and a few friends have been experiencing, here in Reno, NV. I haven't had too much luck.

Basically, my phone reports 5 3G bars (full service). I can make calls and send/receive text messages. However, there are times that I cannot connect to any website, send/receive email, or use any app that connects to the web (Facebook, weather apps, etc.). Often times the only solution to regaining connectivity is rebooting the phone or disabling/re-enabling 3G. Other times, out of frustration, locking the phone and coming back to it some time later also resolves the issue. This is occurring 5+ times a day.

I've tried all the usual troubleshooting tips to no avail. I'm curious, is anyone else having this same issue and is it a phone or network problem? Numerous of my other friends have had the same exact issue, but not as frequent as myself. Although, I suspect I simply use my phone more than they do.

Thanks in advance for any help, advice, or opinions!
QUOTE Thanks
