    Like most of everyone else I've been losing data at random times. So today I lost it again and with no fix all I could do is just restart my phone. But before I did I went to update status in settings just to see what would happen. Guess what when checking for a update my data comes back on. But once it finishes telling me there is no update the data cuts right back off. I tried it two more times and the same thing happened. So I still had to restart my phone to get my data back but I couldn't figure out why in he hell my data would turn on just for checking my update status.

    Even if you're on WiFi, when you check for an update or turn on My Verizon, the phone will connect to the Verizon network to do these tasks. So these tasks have the capacity to turn on/off 3G independently of whether or not you already have a 3G connection. It would be interesting to try the My Verizon app the next time someone has a loss of data connection, see if it really does connect.

    FYI, when I loose data, a lot of times just turning airplane mode on and off will fix it.

    When this happens on my Wife's Phone, I call VZW and have them send me another phone. :)

    Finally got a NIB and have it up and running for 2 days now, i think only one disconnect.
