    It doesn't really effect my browsing all that much, but it is a little weird to see it connect and disconnect as often as it does, same with my bars they're ask over the place.

    You know, im probably just stupid...those up and down arrows are not my connection but are rather there to symbolize that my phone is either uploading and downloading info...correct?

    Yes, those arrows show some type of download/upload occuring.
    Also I live in the NYC area and the signal spazzing happens me to as well. I go from 3 bars 3G to 1 bar to 1X then back to 3 bars. I think it really depends on your location. In school, I'm at a pretty solid 4 Bars 3G with it rarely going to 3.

    As long as you don't see it bouncing back & forth from 3G to 1X, you're fine. The arrows toggling on & off are totally normal. Unless you're downloading a big file, then the down arrow should stay lit almost continuously.

    The thread shows you to do the *228 update - followed by option 2.

    However, I ran into an interesting issue - I kept pressing 2 and nothing happened....

    You have to wait until after the woman finishes talking to clarify.

    Just read that thread. Google PRL for a full definition but I also explained it in the thread.
