    So for some reason I am not getting a 3G connection...I have full service bars but only a 1x data connect. This has happened to me before and I wiped caches and data and reflashed velocity and it worked again. This time it tried it and it didntwork. I tried to put it in airplane mode and turn back on and it didn't work. Tired dialin #228 or whatever to check for programming with no luck. Any suggestions would b appreciated.

    Might be a internet outage, call Verizon & see. I've had this happen to a tower by where I live twice before.

    Yeah i have had that trouble as well. I would have full service and then i would you an app that uses data like speedtest. When i was using it, the connection would cut out. I have no task killers. I use jd but i disabled it and it still happens. I tried the *#*#4636#*#* trick but its worthless. I set it to cdma auto prl.

    I've had the exact same issue while downloading heavy sized files or torrenting for sure does it right off the bat. I don't have or will ever have highspeed where I live so this is all I can get. The 3g icon dissapears lossing highspeed and then it comes back. It alternates on and off when a download is going and while its happening there is no data connection at all. I restarted the phone and did a 228 option 2. I don't know if that coombination fixed it or not but its fine now. It did it with wireless tether running. I also switched to wired tether on an xp machine it seems to shut the connection off all together and makes me restart the phone and app
