    This is just a guess, but I am assuming once you update the radio it is not an issue. I am on Android 2.2 via the new radio and have not had any issues. I have wiped about 10 times in the past 24 hours.

    I am not going to test it, but you should be able to wipe, update the radio, root, and go to 2.2 without a problem.

    Side note: When I went to 2.2 last week my data went out and I could not get it to work right until I wiped it.

    that's what leads me to the question though...am i going to screw it up by going backwards when i unroot to install the new radio?

    before I unrooted and went to 2.2 I did a factory reset and didn't lose 3G...

    I don't know what this was about. I've never heard of this? Wouldn't it be wide spread? I've wiped my 2.1 about 3 times. I still have 3g?

    Before I went Froyo, I had done three factory restore/wipes on 2.1 withot a single issue to my 3g speed/ability. Then I rooted (the old way, in&out with the SD card), then 2.2 came out and I flashed all the way back to 2.1 stock with a wipe and factory reset... 3G was working fine. I installed the OTA Radio, 3G was fine. I unrEVOked my phone, 3G was fine. I installed 2.2. 3G was fine. I messed with the build.prop changes for audio and other changes for audio on 2.2 and had to wipe/clear and reinstall Froyo from update.zip three times. 3G radio is STILL working fine.

    I've never seen the problem, but then again I am one user on one phone. YMMV/Grain of Salt/Good luck.

    I just wipe my phone last night and I have not had any issues at all. 2 days ago I went from 2.2 to 2.1 and also wiped my data and no issues back then either so I don't think this is a widespread problem.

    Well, I just did a factory reset and I have no data. "Mobile network" just says turning on... It had been sitting there for about 2 hours.
