    ive heard that since virgin (bell) doesnt have a 2g network they disabled 2g data on this phone (since they only have 3g data)...i have noticed some problems with switching from 3g to 2g and loosing data...can anyone else confirm this?

    either way ill most likely root and install the official 2.2 htc legend rom when its available...

    did you solve it by switching?
    if so, how?

    I don't think bell disabled anything. Their network does not have gsm 2g fallback. I have a legend unlocked running on fido and 2g works fine. Fido/rogers network is gsm based and is able to use that network. I think that is how it is but I could be wrong.

    i now have read that its not disabled by bell but a bug in the 2.1 firmware that wont switch to edge data (gsm works fine though)

    im waiting for the official 2.2 or official cyanogen 6.1 (now officially supported) - which ever comes out 1st
