Hi, same issue: X5, New Zealand, 2degrees.
In my case only packet data seems to be affected (I can still receive calls/txt's... I think...)
Interesting part is that from my current location there are basically two cell site options:
1) A 3G+ site (low signal strength)
2) A 2G site (very high signal strength)
The phone is currently bugging out and reports no packet data connection (no 'H' symbol at the top of the screen etc) but also indicates a low signal strength suggesting that it is probably attached to the 3G+ site....
The problem may be related to situations where the phone repeatedly looses it's packet data connection causing it to eventually give up on packet data all together.
To (temporarily) resolve the issue I find that you can switch to flight/airplane mode and back (hold the power button for a couple seconds to bring up the menu.) This seems to force it to re-register and after a few seconds re-enable packet data.
