    So I live in Irvine, CA and on the coverage map my entire city is DARK blue. I just got my g1 today and the internet was ridiculously slow and at the top it said E instead of 3G so I assume im still on EDGE.

    Is there something you have to do to enable 3G?


    edit:
    i saw 3g for about 15 seconds. what is causing this?

    I live in Anaheim and my 3g works great... I would however see if you connect 3g outside or just walk around... I have found I have 2 specific dead spots in my condo...

    Also go to wireless controls, mobile network and see if you have 2g selected I have't had any luck with 2g (disables 3g) and it was on when I got my phone....

    if there is a deadspot would that mean EDGE dies too? or just 3g


    my house has 1-2 bars max at any given time, would this affect the data as well?

    well I get edge everywhere I lose 3g in my kitchen and the master bedroom but no where else.... I also only have 1 or 2 bars in my house at any given time but as soon as I go outside it pegs to 4... I know it sounds weird but since I only live like 10 minutes from you at most I would say that our issues should be extremely similar... also if you have wireless internet at home you might as well use it... t-mobile can not bill you or limit you on your own wireless connections.... that is what I have done most lately.....
