    Hello everyone, first time posting here and hope I can get some good advice. I have a Moto Droid and starting last month, only while I'm at work, my phone switches between 3g and 1x but mostly stays on 1x 95% of the time. A little background on where I work. I work in a basement and have horrible reception when our repeater is not hooked up, which is why we have a repeater down here. It's a zboost YX500-cel. For the last year and a half it has worked perfectly but last month my phone started switching to 1x all the time. My co-worker has a blackberry storm2 and his stays on 3g all the time. Another co-worker with a blackberry storm2 has his switch just like mine. I checked the location of the antenna for the repeater and it has not moved in over a year and the cable hasn't been touched. I have updated my phone and tried moving the repeater and power cycling it, nothing as worked.

    Just hoping someone can shed a little light on the problem, I need my 3 g back so I can stop working at work :p

    Could be the repeater going bad. Repeaters act like routers, which sometimes just die of old age. At least, in my experience.
