    Not sure if this happened to anyone else, but for some reason, my phone rebooted and I lost my data connection for a half hour. I sent a text, the phone shut itself off, turned back on, and NO DATA. I was able to text and call, but for a solid half hour, I had no 3G data.

    I figured it may have been an issue with the phone, but I rebooted it 3 times and did a battery pull- nothing. About 15 minutes after I went through all that, the 3G just magically reappeared. Which makes me wonder if any of you other users noticed a loss of data today.

    It was around 2:00 PM Eastern. I live in Upstate New York, btw, for any chance this could have been a regional thing.

    I hope someone else experienced this, because I don't wanna have to face the fact that maybe my phone is just becoming self aware and trying to kill me o_O

    Just checked network logs at Verizon. Shows no outage at all today in the upstate area. There was an outage in the Brooklyn area, but thats it.

    Could have just been one of those things where your phone goes on the fritz. It happens.

    All is well now?

    Its happened to me before, but I assumed it was a bug in whatever ROM I was using. Its normally triggered by tethering for me. I'll be using it, and then my 3G connection disappears at random. The only way to reenable it is to put it in airplane mode and then reconnect.

    I think it may have had something to do with my phone sleeping though.

    Thanks Jedii, yes all is well now. I figured since the 3G disappeared for a while even after rebooting and such, it could have been something with the network rather than just my phone. Guess it was just my phone lol

    And Demache, I'm not rooted, but the phone was asleep for a while prior to that, so it could have something to do with it. If it happens again, I'll let you guys know.
