Huawei Ascend 3G Cant connectSupport

    I noticed that on my notification bar, the 3G box with arrows pointing up and down no longer appears. i still have full service, but when I try to get online, it says "Network Connection Error" or something like that.

    I have done research, and I tried numerous things like like going into the settings, getting a widget to turn 3G on/off, and airplane mode on/off. None of these work.

    My 3G has worked fine in the past, but now, the only way to connect is Wifi. I have not done any updates recently ( unless an automatic update occurred that i didn't know about. ) My Huawei Ascend is Rooted, if that matters.

    Does Anyone have any ideas of what to do to fix this?

    its not 3g its 1x - Try loading up your browser and see if it comes bk - Turn wifi off first. - If this doesnt work then Restart your phone - Turn off wifi again And it should be bk.

    Sometimes when that happens I enable Airplane Mode for a few seconds then to turn it back off, and it all reconnects.

    My 3g has been going off more than usual lately, but it always comes back on. Maybe cricket is working on something. If it doesn't come back on, try *228. If that doesn't work, you will have to call cricket cs. (I'm assuming you are on cricket because metro doesn't have 3g)

    If you're using a task killer or JUICE DEFENDER,or any similar apps,ditch them.Juice defender has been known to interfere w/the data connection.

    Your phone is tapped? Or do you mean its the Tapout edition?

    I have the same problem, and have since I got the phone (cricket). CS is pointless, they are clueless unless you happen to speak Farsi. Seriously, ask them where in India they are located and they will outright lie to you and get very upset. I wish I had never fallen for this scam phone, that cannot be upgraded to 2.2 unlike the Zio. No market app at all works without wifi, no matter what I do. The store personnel only know how to ring up a sale, but are useless as a screen door on a submarine if you need any technical help at all.

    My best advice would be to run, not walk, to a different carrier that doesn't consider you a mark to be fleeced.

    Isn't this phone supposed to have 3G? 1x is really crappy and I don't use my phone where I can connect to WiFi.

    Please use the search function before starting new threads. If you had you would have seen your question answered MANY times.
    1x is the phone symbol for 1xRtt, which is the first technology of 3g. 3g is the phone symbol for 1xEvDo (note they both start with 1x, which means 1 radio), which is a newer and faster technology. The 1x and 3g on the phones is to distinguish the two but BOTH ARE 3g.
    Everyone with Metro feels your pain (except the 4g customers).

    Don't worry too much about it. Now you know for future questions, and hopefully you'll get your answer without having to wait.

    Enjoy your phone!

    Ok so I am just rooted atm, no roms. Up until an hour ago 3g was fine then I noticed the little 3g symbol was gone but I could still send receive txts. I cant however download MMS or send MMS nor can I access the market or the web.

    Thought I would bounce this off people here before I spend an hour with customer service and eventually end up spending another 80 dollars for another refurbished phone.

    I tried calling customer service, seems they are using a different support group who does not handle customer service related issues at this time...

    I am on Cricket fyi
