    All the sudden today i just lost my 3g data connection. I actually saw the airplane symbol for a min or two as well. I toon it to sprint and they couldnt get the data connection back thy tried some kind of "activation" which didnt work then they wanted to have the phone for a day which j cjldnt do today. Now i disabled the 3g on the phone and turned it back off and on again and it said it was runnjng the activation again but this time t ran through and i turned 3g back on and the arrows show up but they never flash but i am on the pjone now posting this.

    Any ideas what could wrong? I fear that i will loose 3g again any minute.

    Something similar happened to me the other day as well. I could pick up 4G and WiFi, but if I turned those off I had no data at all, 3G or anything - even with full bars of phone service!

    I also called Sprint - I think they must have done a similar thing as far as "activation" on my phone - I had to punch in some million-number code and click through a bunch of menus. Then off, then on, and it rebooted with an activation message. It started working again after a few minutes.

    The Sprint tech said it was clearing my phone's memory or something.

    I used to have a similar problem with my Blackberry and solved it by programming it to do a soft battery pull every night. I admit, I haven't been turning my Evo off at all, so maybe this means we need to do that once in awhile...

    This happened to me but instead of losing 3g all together it was just really weak. I was basically roaming everywhere indoors and outside i could get a bar or maybe two of 3g. I tried every sort of update (prl, profile, firmware, etc) I could and even spent about 45 min on the phone with sprint. Finally did a hard reset and have not had a problem since.
