    I've heard several people with the same issue after doing the metro 2.2 update.

    You have a few options... If you haven't rooted yet, you can take it back to metro and make them fix it. Or you could root it and try out PlayfulMod, or try one of the cm roms.

    dial *228 option 5, than option 1. also try putting your phone in airplane mode for a couple minutes, but if all fails contact metro, you might not be on the upgrade plan which is their fault, and they will fix it for you right than.

    Glad you got it figured out. I didn't even think of that. LOL.

    In regards to rooting, it allows you/your apps root access. Some apps require root access in order to operate. Apps like Titanium Backup and Root Explorer need root access, they can be used to remove bloatware which is otherwise impossible to get rid of. Check out the All Things Root subforum for more info.

    Did you try resetting your connection? Taking out the battery for a while, reinserting and trying again? I'm able to connect to the internet with 1x, yet its freakishly slow.

    All your rooting and need to know info can be found here -> Ascend - All Things Root - Android Forums

    I see you're new here, welcome to the forums! :p
