    ...seemingly for no reason. (running fresh 2.3.3, and whatever stock kernels/overclockers or whatever, come with it) i've searched on here but havent really found the answer.

    it seems about 50% of the time when i go to either the browser or maps (or something that uses GPS), i'll find no connection. toggling airplane mode seems to remedy data connection, but i usu have to reboot to bring GPS back up.

    anyone else having these issues???

    My GPS has been sketchy from day 1.
    Every couple days I find I either can't get a lock closer than within about 1/4 mile, or it just plain puts me out in the middle of the Indian ocean somewhere.
    Gotta reboot every time to fix it.

    hmmm, i've seen those discussions on here, but thought that was just for remedying bad signal strength? i.e. i usu have great signal wherever i go and even when my data connection is cut off, i still have great signal etc.
